Today, technology is being used to support teachers in designing interesting and stimulating learning environments for students. In this paper, a computer-supported design project is used to create a collaborative learning environment with the aim of inculcating collaborative skills into the learners and increasing their problem-solving and critical thinking skills. It examines the social interactions which determine how groups develop, how sound social spaces characterized by group cohesion, trust, respect and belonging are established, and how a sense of community of learning is established. It concludes with an evaluation of educational techniques proposed by instructors and educators.
