What is Exploratory Talk

Handbook of Research on Applied Learning Theory and Design in Modern Education
It has been defined as a specific mode of social interactions in the class. Exploratory talk is that in which partners engage critically but constructively with each other’s ideas. Relevant information is offered for joint consideration. Proposals may be challenged and counter-challenged, but if so reasons are given and alternatives are offered. Agreement is sought as a basis for joint progress. Knowledge is made publicly accountable and reasoning is visible in the talk.

Collaborative Design in School: Conflicts, Contradictions, Agreements, and Disagreements to Learn
Valérie Tartas (Université of Toulouse Jean Jaurès, France) and Marcelo Giglio (HEP Bejune, Switzerland & University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-4666-9634-1.ch020
This chapter presents a literature review on collaboration to learn with some illustrations to design adequate collaborative settings to promote learning in the classroom. From a socio-cultural approach of education, the authors present the way teacher and students participate together in several discursive activities to elaborate a shared understanding of the topic or task under study. This chapter offers two collaborative designs: an argumentative tool-based collaboration in astronomy and a creative collaboration in music education. Some examples are proposed in order to identify different conflicts, contradictions, agreements and disagreements between students to solve a problem, complete a task or create a product in collaboration.
