Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to explore the significance of gender in respect of children’s interactions and how this relates to processes of development and learning. We examine possible theoretical explanations for gender differences in respect of patterns of interaction, before reporting a study which investigates the efficacy of these different explanatory accounts in the context of collaborative work on an English language problem solving task.
