Transforming Tensions in Learning Technology Design: Operationalising Activity Theory
Dobson, Mike; LeBlanc, David; Burgoyne, Diana
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v30 n1 Win 2004
A brief review shows several suggested ways in which cultural historical activity theory has proved valuable to technology supported learning environments. Three of our own design cases are then described (evaluating a peer to peer interface for learning objects, designing an on-line school, and rethinking a public science centre). These are discussed to illustrate the approach and finally this is reviewed for potential re-use.
