In CSCL research, collaborative activity is conceptualized along various yet intertwined dimensions. When functioning within these multiple dimensions, participants make use of several resources, which can be social or content-related (and sometimes temporal) in nature. It is the effective coordination of these resources that appears to characterize successful collaborative activity. This study proposes a methodological approach for studying coordination of resources when solving geometry problems with dynamic geometry software. The aim is to suggest a methodological lens to capture both the content-related and social discourse within the context of geometry problem solving using dynamic geometry software. As an example, the paper also provides an analysis of a dyad's face-to-face interaction using the suggested framework.
