Abstract:This research study investigates middle school and high school students’ use of a wiki-based learning management system as a coordinating representation in the context of their guided discovery-based game design work. The study aims to (a) consider/validate the quality of Google Analytics page read data as a source of insight for research; (b) describe activity patterns; (c) investigate possible relationships between measured activity patterns and student learning outcomes; and (d) consider implications for practice, such as enhanced teacher training, program improvements, and even development of LMS information system diagnostic tools. Findings indicate positive relationships between resource uses and game quality outcome scores (a measure of student knowledge-building), across as several LMS curriculum page types including social media pages (Profile pages and Team pages) and information resource pages (Intro, Unit 3, and Actionscript tutorials). The research supports effectiveness of guided discovery-based learning in supporting knowledge-building, and holds local pragmatic implications for optimization of the e-learning system under investigation, as well as methodological and theoretical implications for the bridging fields of information and learning sciences.
