The paper presents research in the field of mobile computer supported collaborative learning (mCSCL). The aim of this research is to enhance synchronous collaborative learning activities in primary school context by introducing adaptivity. In order to determine the best niche for such adaptivity support, a set of trial experiments were designed in a primary school. In the experiments, students were asked to complete mathematics assignments on tablet computers in a one-to-one mobile learning setup. They were working in groups of two and three in three main roles: authors, editors and checkers. Log files were analyzed in order to extract students’ activity performance in the assigned roles. The analysis results showed differences in task completion time as well as in efficiency when working in specific roles. To overcome the identified issues, adaptive support model consisting of adaptive group formation, adaptive role assignment and adaptive task assignment is proposed.
