Collective Digital Storytelling: An Activity-Theoretical Analysis of Second Language Learning and Teaching
Kalyaniwala-Thapliyal, Carmenne
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v24 n4 Sum 2016
This paper describes the collective activity of a group of four students who created a digital story as a teaching resource that was to be used for teaching English as a foreign language. It uncovers and analyzes the actual processes underlining the activity as it unfolds from one stage to another. Four processes, viz., sociocognitive interactions, methodological processes, reflective processes and techno-semiopragmatic interactions were identified during the unfolding of the collective activity. Moreover, the results of this study highlight the role of the community in determining the activity of a lower level language group.
