[Research] The role of space in socially distributed cognition

Very close to my domain is this publication: Perry, M., O'Hara, K., Spinelli, G. and Sharpe, B. (2003). The role of space in socially distributed cognition: some issues for cognitive engineering. 25th Annual meeting of the cognitive science society (Cogsci 2003), Boston, USA, 31 July - 2 August, 916-921.

This paper explores and identifies cognitive issues that develop out of the use of representational media by collaborating groups of people involved in problem solving. We take the analytic perspective of distributed cognition to examine the role that these artifacts have on information processing activity in augmenting human action and in transforming the problem space. The analysis is further used in identifying issues for cognitive engineering in the design of spatial, augmentative resources to support collaborative problem solving.
