Abstract: CSCL research typically investigates processes at the individual, small-group and community units of analysis. However, CSCL analyses generally focus on only one of these units, even in multi-method approaches. Moreover, there is little data-based analysis of how the three levels are connected. This paper proposes that the levels of individual learning, group cognition and community knowledge building are connected by interactional resources, which can mediate between the levels. A theory of the connection of the levels is sketched. Then examples of such connections by interactional resources are presented from logs of several CSCL experiments. Finally, a curriculum for gradually providing math teachers and math students with a complex of resources relevant to dynamic geometry is described as an example of how to support the connection of small-group interaction with individual understanding and with cultural practices in a CSCL adaptation of geometry education.
