Collaboration scripts structure the collaboration process by guiding the interacting partners through a sequence of interaction phases with designated activities and roles. Scripts are expected to promote learning by prompting cognitive, meta-cognitive and social processes that might otherwise not occur, i.e. students are more likely to traverse useful learning paths than in unscripted collaboration. For example, the script prompts interacting partners to engage in activities like posing questions, providing explanations, and giving feedback.
