Debugging an Artifact, Instrumenting a Bug: Dialectics of Instrumentation and Design in Technology-Rich Learning Environments
International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning Vol. 13, No. 1 (March 2008) pp. 1–26
This article explores ways of conceptualizing the design of innovative learning tools as emergent from dialectics between designers and learner-users of those tools. More specifically, I focus on the reciprocities between a designer's objectives for ...
Technological Dilemmas: A Guide to Selecting and Implementing Resources for Secondary Mathematics Instruction
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2002 (2002) pp. 1109–1113
The NCTM Principles and Standards Vision for School Mathematics posits classrooms where all students have access to computer and calculator technologies, and where those technologies play an essential role in instruction. The image is compelling,...
International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Vol. 1, No. 3 (September 2006) pp. 359–382
This study explores the potential of networked handheld computers to support collaborative problem solving in small groups. Drawing on data from a middle school mathematics classroom equipped with a wireless handheld network, I argue that the...
International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Vol. 13, No. 1 (2018) pp. 93–122
Classroom activity traditionally takes one of three forms, variously oriented toward the levels of individual students, small groups, or the whole class. CSCL systems, however, may enable novel ways to facilitate instruction within or sequence...
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning Vol. 58, No. 1 (January 2014) pp. 64–70
This paper argues for an approach to mobile learning that leverages students' informal digital practices as resources for designing mathematics classrooms activities. We briefly describe two exploratory designs along these lines, one featuring...

This dissertation reports on a pilot study of a classroom network of handheld computers. The project included the development of a handheld software application called Code Breaker and a middle school mathematics unit introducing...
Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 42, No. 4 (July 2014) pp. 615–637
This paper presents a small group computing environment in which four students each control a different point in a geometric space, such that as a group they collectively manipulate the vertices of a quadrilateral. Prior research has revealed that...
Computers & Education Vol. 59, No. 3 (November 2012) pp. 963–973
Though cooperative learning has been a topic of considerable interest in educational research, there has been little study specific to learning in the mathematics content area of geometry. This paper seeks to address that gap through a design...
Distributed by Design: On the Promises and Pitfalls of Collaborative Learning with Multiple Representations
Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 20, No. 3 (2011) pp. 489–547
This article presents a designed learning environment intended to engage students in learning about the relationships among multiple representations as they work together on a shared task. Over the course of several extended problem-solving sessions,...
Mathematical Thinking and Learning Vol. 14, No. 2 (2012) pp. 149–172
This article presents a design experiment in which we explore new structures for classroom collaboration supported by a classroom network of handheld graphing calculators. We describe a design for small group investigations of linear functions and...
