Abstract

This study investigates the relationships between students' perceptions and their online behaviors after they were engaged in collaborative knowledge building activities for social studies. One hundred and seventy seven Singapore primary three and primary four students participated in this study and the results show that when interpreting students' collaborative knowledge building, their perceptions about knowledge play an important role. Students who possess a questioning attitude about the knowledge from text books or experts are likely to search for more available audio-visual resources.
