We expand the notion of CSCL to understand how people can become more innovative. Good learning designs in CSCL can provide opportunities for students to coconstruct ideas leveraging on cognitive diversity, to be creative and to experience the discipline of innovation while at the same time learning curricular disciplinary knowledge. The adoption of CSCL in the classroom necessitates teachers to be innovators that understand and know how to harness the affordances of CSCL tools for effective classroom learning. CSCL is also predicated on the necessary socio-cultural conditions in schools created by school leaders to foster an environment for teachers to be willing innovators and to be able to manage risks. By studying and expanding CSCL from the innovation perspective, we may shed light on the most important factors in translating the various research studies of successful CSCL to impactful real world adoption of these technologies in classroom practices.
