Summary: We present an episode taken from a two years teaching experiment involving the regular use a Dynamic Geometry Software with a class of 7th graders. The learning context is centred on studentstudentcomputer interactions. The overall aim of the research is to understand the role of the emerging peer and computer feedback in students' learning. We adopt a qualitative and interpretive research methodology. The data presented are related to an episode involving the actions of a pair of students while solving a geometry task with GeoGebra. The empirical data were analysed and interpreted by applying a model of feedback phases combined with a model of strategies devising. The results point to a strong connection between the role of peer and computer feedback and the forms of devising and revising strategies to solve the problem.
