Gerry Stahl's Assembled Texts
Following are links to the volumes. They include:
* My doctoral dissertations (volumes 1 and 2)
* Books published by MIT Press, Springer Press, Morgan & Claypool, Cambridge University Press (volumes 3-6). These books can be purchased from the publishers; pre-publication versions are also available without the final editing and pagination from this site.
* Self-published volumes of assembled essays (volumes 7-18), previously published in journals, books or conferences. The PDF versions are generally the best (most up-to-date, best formatted, consistent pagination, color figures, high resolution images. If you prefer, inexpensive paperback, EPUB (for iPad iLibrary) and MOBI (for Kindle and Kindle App) are also available for free.
* Proceedings of CSCL 2002 and CSCL 2011, which I chaired or co-chaired. Issues of the International Journal of CSCL, which I edited from 2006-2015.
This was my PhD dissertation in philosophy. It presents core methodological ideas from two philosophies that influenced contemporary theory perhaps more than any other. It proposes a synthesis, which continues to guide my thinking. It reflects my understanding of philosophy and social thought in the early 1970s. 217 pages. ISBN 978-0-557-69373-3. e-ISBN 978-1-4581-7475-8.
This was my PhD dissertation in computer science. It addresses the nature of group understanding within design teams and raises the question of how to design computer support for collaborative knowledge building. I completed this in 1993. 374 pages. ISBN 978-0-557-69380-1.
A collection of my papers from 1993-2005 about the design of collaboration software, the analysis of online interaction and the theory of group cognition. The chapters discuss software prototypes to support group formation/interaction, multiple interpretive perspectives and the negotiation of shared knowledge. The book proposes the study of group cognition at the small-group unit of analysis. It also proposes the Virtual Math Teams project to conduct research on group cognition. Published by MIT Press in 2006. 510 pages. ISBN 0-262-19539-9.
A collection of chapters from 2005-2009 about the VMT project, including contributions by project members and international colleagues. It covers overviews of the VMT approach, summaries of several dissertations on data from the VMT project, methodological reflections, software design issues, representational systems and theoretical considerations. Published by Springer Verlag in 2009. 626 pages. ISBN 978-1-4419-0227-6 (hardcover). ISBN 978-1-4419-5677-4 (softcover). e-ISBN 978-1-4419-0228-3.
A multi-dimensional analysis of the attempt by the VMT Project from 2002-2013 to translate geometry education into a human-centered, computer-supported, collaborative-learning, dynamic-geometry pedagogy based on design research. Written from 2010-2013, the book discusses: the VMT vision, the history of geometry education, philosophical issues, the mathematics of dynamic geometry, collaborative learning, research methods, theory of referential resources, pedagogy, curriculum and design-based research. Published by Morgan & Claypool in April 2013. 235 pages. ISBN 162705135X (softcover). e-ISBN 978-1-62705135-4 (e-book).
A monograph written from 2014-2015, analyzing the work of a group of three students as they become introduced to dynamic geometry during eight hour-long online sessions using VMT with GeoGebra. The monograph documents the team's development of mathematical group cognition. Introductory chapters motivate the study and discuss its case-study method. Concluding chapters reflect on the group-cognitive development and its implications for re-design of the math curriculum. To be published in 2016 by Cambridge University Press.
An assembly of my early writings on philosophy, starting with an undergraduate thesis on Nietzsche; essays related to Marx, Heidegger and Adorno; informal notes on artificial intelligence and other issues. 182 pages. ISBN 978-0-557-70489-7. e-ISBN 978-1-4581-3537-7.
A collection of papers on software design from my research at the University of Colorado, exploring perspectives mechanisms for structured hypermedia, from 1989-2001. 294 pages. ISBN 978-1-257-07626-0. e-ISBN 978-1-4581-6708-8.
A collection of publications from 2006-2011 on issues of CSCL, including desriptions of VMT and plans for future VMT development. 206 pages. ISBN 978-1-4583-8533-8. e-ISBN 978-1-4581-9519-7.
Essays, case studies and documentation related to group cognition as a scientific enterprise. The essays discuss the structure of discourse in collaborative online mathematics, including longer structures built upon adjacency pairs of conversational utterances or chat response pairs of postings. This structure has been captured in coding schemes used in certain studies within the VMT Project.
A collection of essays on foundational issues of group cognition, including the nature of group cognition and preconditions for its effective occurrence. Includes analysis of excerpts from interactions in VMT, showing the development of preconditions for group cognition. Discusses intersubjectivity, shared understanding, joint attention, common ground and being-there-together-in-the-world.
These are case studies of student teams using VMT to work on problems in the mathematical domain of combinatorics. The version of VMT used here included a generic whiteboard for sketching graphical representations. Data from these sessions was analyzed by a number of researchers in addition to the VMT project members.The essays in this volume were co-authored with close colleagues.
This volume includes analyses of student teams using the VMT environment with multi-user GeoGebra. These studies are related to the presentations in in Translating Euclid and Constructing Dynamic Triangles Together.
Workbooks with topics for online small groups of teachers or students to collaboratively learn dynamic geometry. The approach is based on Translating Euclid. The many GeoGebra files used in the course are pictured in the workbook. Several versions of the workbooks are available, including the version used in WinterFest 2013 and analyzed in Translating Euclid and Constructing Dynamic Triangles Together. Also includes the content of a game version that is available as a GeoGebraBook.
A chapter on "CSCL: An historical perspective" by Stahl, Koschmann & Suthers, with translations into Spanish, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Romanian and German. From 2006. 196 pages. ISBN 978-0-557-69556-0. e-ISBN 978-1-4581-4779-0.
A compilation of the editorial introductions to the International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning from 2006-2010. 140 pages. 978-0-557-67822-8. e-ISBN 978-1-4580-4392-4.
