Groups, Group Cognition and Groupware [chapter]

Gerry Stahl
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We need to analyze interaction at both the individual and the group unit of analysis in order to understand the variety of processes that groupware should be supporting.  ...  This paper will look closely at an empirical example of knowledge being constructed by a small group and suggest implications for groupware design.  ...  While computer support brings many potential advantages, it also brings the danger of destroying the extreme flexibility and adaptability of the natural language used in conversation and group interactions  ...

Introduction to the Special Issue: "Cognitive Perspectives on Group Decision and Negotiation"

Gwendolyn L. Kolfschoten, Bruce A. Reinig
2013 Group Decision and Negotiation

Intelligent negotiation model for ubiquitous group decision scenarios

João Carneiro, Diogo Martinho, Goreti Marreiros, Paulo Novais
2016 Frontiers of Information Technology & Electronic Engineering  
It uses a social networking logic due to the type of communication employed by the agents and it intends to support the ubiquitous group decision-making process in a similar way to the real process, which  ...  Our approach can be used by researchers that intend to include arguments, complex algorithms, and agents' modeling in a negotiation model.  ...  Sometimes public conversations or conversations between multiple agents are mentioned, but in practice what happens is that there is a group of agents that exchange messages where each message has a single  ...

Mathematical Discourse as Group Cognition [chapter]

Gerry Stahl
2009 Studying Virtual Math Teams  
Despite her persuasive argument in favor of PM and a claim that AM and PM are as incommensurable as day and night, she asked us to retain the use of both metaphors and to take them as complementary in  ...  Anna Sfard raised the methodological discourse in the CSCL community to a higher niveau of self-understanding a decade ago with her analysis of our two prevalent metaphors for learning: the acquisition  ...  Of course, the analysis of group interaction necessarily involves interpretation to understand the meaning-making processes that take place.  ...

Use of Intelligent Agents in Collaborative MLearning: Case of Facilitating Group Learner Interactions

Stephen T. Njenga, Robert O. Oboko, Elijah I. Omwenga, Elizaphan M. Maina
2017 International Journal of Modern Education and Computer Science  
Intelligent agents have been used in collaborative learning. However, they are rarely used to facilitate group interactions in collaborative m-learning environments.  ...  In view of this, the paper discusses the use of intelligent agents in facilitating collaborative learning in mobile learning environments.  ...  This work was supported in part by a research grant from NACOSTI.  ...

Epistemological Encounters in Multivocal Settings [chapter]

Kristine Lund, Carolyn Penstein Rosé, Daniel D. Suthers, Michael Baker
2013 Productive Multivocality in the Analysis of Group Interactions  
This chapter reflects on epistemological encounters in a five-year project of multidisciplinary collaborations in the analysis of interaction.  ...  Researchers usually work and evolve in the scientific frameworks in which they were trained, without questioning their epistemological foundations.  ...  Our thanks also go to Nancy Law for provoking a key pivotal moment useful in elaborating the argument developed here.  ...
