Teachers of networked collaborative classrooms may collect studentsʼ interaction data that can support them to interpret studentsʼ activities, in order to intervene when necessary. In this paper, an innovative tool is presented that can be used to assist teachers to build multiple alternative views and interpretations based on interaction data, during collaborative activities. Overviews, detailed and comparative views are available at the class, group and individual level. Collaboration activity and the content of the process may be visualized, while rules can be defined that when activated, the teacherʼs attention, is drawn to interesting events.
