Abstract

It has already been proven that peer tutoring is an effective way to engage students in learning. However, without technology support, it can be difficult to conduct peer tutoring program in a classroom. We propose a system called P 3T that supports peer tutoring in one-to-one digital learning environment. P 3T facilitates peer tutoring by scaffolding both tutors and tutees to prepare for the tutorial session and facilitating their elaborations during the face-to-face tutoring. An experiment was executed to test if the P 3T system can help the activity go more smoothly than those without P 3T system. This paper discusses the design of P 3T models and system, and reports what is found in our experiment.
