System/emergence interpretation of similarity between common ground / internalisation / grounding in HC
Where does the reflection come from:
===================================
Interest in systemic description of human-environment interaction.
Reading: P. Dillenbourg, M. Baker, A. Blaye, C. O'Malley, The evolution of research on collaborative learning, in E. Spada & P. Reiman (Eds) Learning in Humans and MAchines: toward an interdisciplinary learning science. (pp 189-211). Oxford: Elsevier.

A similarity (compatible with DCog view) between:
- social grounding with progressive abbreviation of deitic expression
- abbreviation in internatisation from outer to iner speech
- (grounding in HC interaction: user adapt his action according to his perception of how the computer understand him")

Reflection:
===========
Using several times a configuration of interaction (use of expression to refer to sthing, action for a specific purpose) make this configuration more likely to occur. In the dynamic system methaphor: the configuration get more "weight", as an attractor known by a learning system it will be more easily achieved, in the relevant context

Noise+action sensitive table
Synthesis: detecting noise may not be enough. It would be interesting to use action + noise pattern

Where does the idea come from:
==============================
Reading while preparing a reaserch paper about group mirrors.
Reading: P. Dillenbourg, M. Baker, A. Blaye, C. O'Malley, The evolution of research on collaborative learning, in E. Spada & P. Reiman (Eds) Learning in Humans and MAchines: toward an interdisciplinary learning science. (pp 189-211). Oxford: Elsevier.
In the "interaction" paradigms it is possible to distinguish:
- management of communicational and social relations
- cognitive (+meta) aspects of the extra-communicative task

Idea:
=====
Efficient learning requires both 1) joint involvement in the task and 2) intense communication (negociation, argumentation).
The task/communication dimension could be used to:
- detect events:
--- communication by microphone
--- actions by finger click on the beamed screen, event on a connected laptop, use of a whiteboard pen on the table

- identify patterns of interaction (dyad scenario):
--- discussion: no actions but sound most of the time
--- works separately : actions detected but no sound
--- works in parallele : actions sound detected from time to time
--- Collaborative work : actions and sound most of the time, from both students

- provide a feed back (just ideas?)
--- Feed back of simuli:
------ sound shown by a static (blue) light
------ exchange of sound by moving (blue) lights
------ actions by (red) lights
--- quality of collaboration. The ligths are flashing more and more quickly when
------ joint intensity event + speech
------ distribution of event/speech between participant
------ regularity in this distribution through time


How to use this idea:
=====================
First scenario of use
Vision to :
- help finding noise patterns (knowing what we are lacking from non verbal)
- integrate : public display / docking station / noise sensitive table
