Analysis of group understanding in artifact-mediated discourses
Issue Date: 
Paper presented at the 9th International Conference on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), Hong Kong, China, 4 – 8 July 2011
A collaborating group is increasingly viewed as a cognitive unit, the workings of
which need to be understood independent of its effects on individual learning. We are
beginning to understand how groups operate as a cognitive unit that learns, solves problems,
and/or constructs new knowledge, but still lack adequate conceptual frameworks and analytic
strategies to deal with different dimensions of group cognition. This problem is particularly
acute in small group interaction mediated by technologies. While various technological tools
are used to support small group interaction, we do not understand clearly yet how group
understanding emerges from this process. In this paper, we examined the development of
group understanding when the group discourse is mediated by the construction of
technological artifacts.
