In order to maintain a dual focus on novel forms of learning and teaching in the context of collaborative designs for networked classroom devices, this research blends two approaches. The first involves a series of design experiments in which new technology designs provide a context for exploring student learning through collaborative problem-solving activities and investigations. The second involves alternating between two different settings for conducting four successive year-long cycles of those design experiments: a set of high school Algebra classrooms taught by teachers who serve as collaborative partners in the design and implementation of new activity designs, and another high school Algebra classroom in which the principal investigator spends portions of two different school years as a researcher-teacher.
