As we begin looking at research within distributed team cognition, two thoughts are paramount: (1) to realize where the emergence distributed team cognition has come from (i.e., its historical significance and character and (2) to understand the reciprocation and influences among teamwork, cognition, and technology advancement as a basis for development of the field. In particular, we draw upon the incredible amount of research work done that indelibly the result of team simulations. Much of our own work emerged from the use of technology-enabled team simulations. This chapter reviews this work along with earlier foundations that set up and substantiate the study of teams both for collocated and distributed settings. This chapter presents Part I of team simulation research that focuses on understanding the long developmental path of work that has preceded current day theories, approaches, methods, and models to establish precedence and meaning.
