Supporting Group Cognition, Individual Learning and Community Practices in Dynamic Geometry
Found in: 2012 Third International Conference on Emerging Intelligent Data and Web Technologies (EIDWT)
By Gerry Stahl
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 190-193
Group cognition is analyzed at the small-group unit of analysis. It involves the semantics, syntactics and pragmatics of natural language, gestures, inscriptions, etc. The meaning-making processes involve inputs from individuals, based on their interpretat...
Bridging and Persistence in Sustained, Collaborative Problem Solving Online
Found in: Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences
By Johann W. Sarmiento, Gerry Stahl
Issue Date:January 2007
pp. 78b
The Virtual Math Teams (VMT) project investigates the innovative use of online collaborative environments to support effective mathematical problem-solving by small groups of learners in an online community. A key research issue for us is to understand how...
Knowledge Negotiation in Asynchronous Learning Networks
Found in: Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences
By Gerry Stahl
Issue Date:January 2003
pp. 3b
The negotiation of what is to count as mutually acceptable collaborative knowledge is difficult to conduct when participants cannot interact face-to-face. We review certain related work on negotiation support and develop a concept of
For a science of group interaction
Found in: Proceedings of the ACM 2009 international conference on Supporting group work (GROUP '09)
By Gerry Stahl
Issue Date:May 2009
pp. 375-376
As a foundation for the design of groupware, we need a new science of group interaction, a systematic description of the processes at the group level of description that may contribute to problem solving, knowledge building and other cognitive tasks undert...
Information behavior of small groups: implications for design of digital libraries
Found in: Proceedings of the 2007 conference on Digital libraries (JCDL '07)
By Gerry Stahl, Nan Zhou
Issue Date:June 2007
pp. 183-184
We report findings of a study that investigates the information behavior of online small groups engaged in math problem solving and discuss the implications for designing digital libraries that can support learning of younger students and their broader inf...
Group creativity in virtual math teams: interactional mechanisms for referencing, remembering and bridging
Found in: Proceedings of the 6th ACM SIGCHI conference on Creativity & cognition (C&C '07)
By Gerry Stahl, Johann W. Sarmiento
Issue Date:June 2007
pp. 37-44
In this paper, we present a qualitative case study of group creativity online in the domain of mathematics. We define creative work broadly, ranging from the micro-level co-construction of novel resources for problem solving to the innovative reuse of idea...
Intertwining perspectives and negotiation
Found in: Proceedings of the international ACM SIGGROUP conference on Supporting group work (GROUP '99)
By Gerry Stahl, Thomas Herrmann
Issue Date:November 1999
pp. 316-325
Cooperative work typically involves both individual and group activities. Computer support for perspectives allows people to view and work in a central information repository within personal contexts. However, work in personal perspectives encourages diver...
Embedding computer-based critics in the contexts of design
Found in: Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human factors in computing systems (CHI '93)
By Gerhard Fischer, Gerry Stahl, Jonathan Ostwald, Kumiyo Nakakoji, Tamara Sumner
Issue Date:April 1993
pp. 157-164
Computational critiquing mechanisms provide an effective form of computer-human interaction supporting the process of design. Critics embedded in domain-oriented design environments can take advantage of additional knowledge residing in these environments ...
