CASTELLARO, Mariano; DOMININO, Martín and ROSELLI, Néstor. The influence of the intellectual inequality in the collaborative interaction of eight years old children dyads. Psicol. caribe [online]. 2011, n.27, pp. 1-39. ISSN 2011-7485.
This investigation aimed to analyze the influence of intellectual inequality on collaborative interaction in eight years old children dyads. The design consisted in a case study because the sample was formed by eight dyads (16 subjects). Collaborative interaction was examined as verbal dimension (message type) and social modality of task execution . Data was processed both quantitatively and qualitatively. The results showed that intellectual homogeneity or intellectual heterogeneity between subjects influences mainly on verbal participation related to logical resolution of tasks. This relation was observed to a lesser extent compared to other message type and social modality execution of task.
