Exchange is a collaborativelearning application, originally developed for wirelessly interconnected Pocket PCs, that provides support for students and a teacher performing a face-to-face computer supported collaborativelearning (CSCL) activity in a Single Input/Single Display (SISD) mode. We extend the application to support a single display groupware (SDG) mode. In this new version, named Exchange-MM, three users each with their own mouse (MultipleMice) interact on a single display with mediation by a technological network. The original collaborative interaction is maintained. We describe a collaborativelearning activity and the software architecture that supports both interaction modes, and also present a usability analysis of the activity conducted with second-grade schoolchildren. The results show that as in SISD mode, in SDG with MultipleMice (MM) the technological network improves communication, negotiation, interactivity, coordination and appropriability between members of collaborativelearning groups.
