This symposium brings together four research groups that have been working on advancing theoretical models of guidance for CSCL. The models share the emphasis on scripting and orchestration but vary in terms of their specific focus, grain size of collaboration, and the nature of learning activities they address. The goals of this symposium are, first, to present recent advances in theorizing guidance from a scripting and orchestration perspective, and, second, to discuss commonalities, differences and future trajectories for theory development on guidance for CSCL. The audience will be interactively involved by using technologies for knowledge building. These technologies allow the audience to contribute challenging cases, questions, and ideas for studies during and after the presentations via laptops and smart phones. To approach the second goal, the discussant will draw from these contributions and involve the audience and the presenters in refining and synthesizing the ideas in a final synthesis discussion.
