Research

Translating Euclid

The book on "Translating Euclid" presents the research of the VMT Project as of Spring 2013. It reflects on this research from multiple perspectives. The book is described at the Euclid webpage, and videos of lectures related to the book are available there.

The Virtual Math Teams (VMT) Project

The VMT Project. This was the focus of my research at Drexel. My first year there, I met with people at the Math Forum and we submitted three proposals to NSF, two of which were funded. These grants funded Phase I of the VMT Project from 2003-2008. In 2003, four iSchool PhD students joined the project and we started to study collaborative learning of mathematics. That year concluded with a workshop with invited CSCL researchers from many countries. The project continued to provide data for many dissertations and analyses. Researchers at other universities carryied out their own versions of the project in collaboration with the Drexel team. The project is documented at VMT. The co-PIs on the VMT project during Phase I were Steve Weimar (Director, The Math Forum) and Wesley Shumar (Anthropologist at the College of Arts & Sciences, Drexel). Post-Doc was Alan Zemel (now At SUNY Albany). Research Assistants were Johann Sarmiento, Murat Cakir, Nan Zhou, Ramon Toledo (College of Information Science, Drexel). The original software developers were Martin Wessner and Martin Muehlpfordt (Concert Project, Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, Darmstadt, Germany). They were supported by Math Forum technical staff. Visiting researchers also included Jan-Willem Strijbos, Fatos Xfar, Stefan Trausan-Matu, Elizabeth Charles, Weiqin Chen, Henrry Rodriguez and Fei-Ching Chen.

Phase II of the VMT Project from 2008-2011 was funded by several grants from NSF and ONR. During this period, we ported GeoGebra into the VMT environment as a multi-user system for dynamic mathematics. Baba Kofi and Jimmy were the technical staff. The VMT Project collaborated with Carolyn Rose at CMU on software agents in VMT.

Phase III of the VMT Project is from 2011-2015, funded by an NSF DR K-12 grant for discovery learning in schools. This is a teacher professional development approach using the VMT environment with GeoGebra. It is in collaboration with Arthur Powell at Rutgers-Newark and Jason Silverman at Drexel's School of Education. The co-PIs include Steve Weimar at the Math Forum as well as Sean Goggins, Andrea Forte, Jennifer Rode and Michael Khoo at the iSchool at Drexel.

See below for funding details and the VMT web page for more details about the project, publications and the technology.


Engaged Learning in Online Communities (ELOC)

ELOC. This was a collaborative effort in 2005-2008 to plan an NSF Science of Learning Center focused on CSCL. Although there was no opportunity to propose such a center, the project succeeded in holding a number of workshops and building a network of researchers, leading to several ideas and projects. The PIs for the project were Gerry Stahl (Drexel), Dan Suthers (Hawaii), Sharon Derry (Wisconsin), K. Ann Renninger (Swarthmore) and Mary Marlino (UCAR). Other central participants were Steve Weimar (Math Forum), Wes Shumar (Drexel), Cindy Hmelo-Silver (Rutgers), Gerhard Fischer (Colorado), Tammy Sumner (Colorado).


The Group Cognition Laboratory

The Group Cognition Lab conducts basic research on phenomena of distributed cognition that take place distinctively at the small-group level of description, such as collaborative knowledge building, joint decision making, group problem solving, shared meaning making, co-construction of knowledge representations.

The Lab specializes in studies that make visible the development of group cognitive processes by generating, capturing and analyzing naturalistic episodes of computer-mediated interaction by novices, such as teams of students just learning to problem solve together online. The microanalysis of these episodes reveals characteristics of group process that contribute to an empirically grounded theory of group cognition, which is emerging from the lab.

The Lab is a flexible collaboration of researchers who bring complementary skills and interests to the multidisciplinary mission of the Lab. This includes information scientists interested in small-group cognitive processes, educators interested in how to promote learning of group-cognitive skills, qualitative and quantitative analysts interested in adapting social science research tools to the analysis of group cognition, software designers interested in developing online environments to support effective collaboration, and theorists interested in elaborating the theory of group cognition.

The following major activities are integrated within the Lab:
• Developing the Virtual Math Teams (VMT) service at the Math Forum for generating real-world data on small groups of students learning to engage in online problem solving of open-ended, ill-structured math problems.
• Working with schools of education and math-teacher-training programs to involve teachers and students in exploring the potentials of the VMT service.
• Conducting collaborative data sessions of researchers to analyze the group interactions taking place in logs of online group work.
• Developing case studies and quantitative analyses of the data from logs of online group work to describe characteristics of group cognition.
• Designing new features for the VMT environment to support group-cognitive accomplishments, based on the microanalysis of interesting cases of usage.
• Extending the theory of group cognition, including building graphical and computational models, clarifying terminology, defining specific concepts, and relating to cognate theories.

The Lab has been recognized as a leading center for research on group cognition based on its work from September 2003 to the present. It has gone through many cycles of design-based research using a prototype VMT environment at the Math Forum, including Spring Fests in 2005, 2006 and 2007, in which student groups from around the world met for sequences of four hour-long sessions. This produced 2,000 student-hours of data, which was reported in about 200 academic publications. In addition, two major books were published: Group Cognition (Stahl, 2006, MIT Press) assembled studies of online collaboration that motivated the work of the Lab and the VMT service; Studying Virtual Math Teams (Stahl, 2009, Springer Press) includes the most important reports from the Lab and from collaborating researchers.

Potential directions for the coming years include the following:
• Design and implement additional functionality for the VMT collaboration environment, including dynamic geometric representations and intelligent tutoring support. (Research question: How do visual representations and automated guidance contribute to establishing common ground and scaffolding problem solving?)
• Explore web interfaces to support the spontaneous formation of ad hoc virtual teams within a large distributed community, including participants from different cultures and different time zones. (Research question: How to stimulate and support ad hoc teams and how to overcome geographic or cultural differences?)
• Further integrate synchronous and asynchronous media to coordinate group accomplishments at different time scales and different social scales, from intense interaction of small groups to community knowledge building over years. (Research question: What differences do temporal and social scales introduce into group cognition? How to archive synchronous interaction content as useful knowledge and data for the community to reuse asynchronously?)
• Scale up the VMT service to be a regular, year-round service of the Math Forum, used by a large number of groups in creative ways. (Research questions: How to foster and support an online community with minimal staffing, and to manage large numbers of interactions within a safe and productive context?)
• Collaborate with teachers and with math-teacher training programs to enhance the pedagogy, to support teacher involvement and to extend the user base of the VMT service. (Research questions: How to build a distributed community with different levels of expertise and to build teacher's reflective practice through participation in VMT?)
• Continue to hold data sessions of researchers to analyze data from new usage and to explore phenomena of interest in more depth. (Research question: What are the characteristics of group-cognitive problem solving processes?)
• Apply new qualitative and quantitative social-science methods to the analysis of group-cognitive phenomena. (Research question: How to combine, e.g., conversation analysis and social network analysis or automated coding?)
• Develop quantitative measures of social presence, task performance, cooperative practices, longitudinal social relations and collaborative information behavior in self-assembling synchronous/asynchronous teams. (Research question: How can we measure processes of online group cognition?)
• Conduct a longitudinal microanalysis of the entire transcript from two four-hour Spring Fest sessions. This would be a ground-breading analysis approach and an innovative style of monograph. (Research question: What are the methodological issues in moving from diachronic snapshots of group cognition in brief excerpts to longitudinal changes in collaboration and shared understanding?)
• Continue to publish analyses and to share data with international collaborators. Further refine the theory of group cognition, including building graphical and computational models. (Research question: How can aspects of the theory be summarized in models?)
It is important to note that these aspects of future work are not separable, but need to be conducted as parts of the integrated work of the Lab. The foundational theoretical work of the lab builds upon empirical microanalysis of situated practical activities and aims to contribute to the improved design of tools, concepts and principles to support practical activities.
