The Mediation of Teaching and Learning Processes through "Identity Artefacts." A Vygotskian Perspective
Subero, David; Llopart, Mariona; Siqués, Carina; Esteban-Guitart, Moises
Oxford Review of Education, v44 n2 p156-170 2018
The aim of this paper is to address the teaching and learning processes in schools from a Vygotskian perspective based on the notion of "identity artefacts" (IAs) which, for our purposes, consist of documents created by the learners about themselves, in which they try to capture all the things that make sense and are meaningful to them and which, subsequently, can be used by teachers to work on curricular and pedagogical content. We conceptualise the notion of the identity artefact from the broader notions of "mediation" and "cultural artefacts." We also provide a critical analysis of some examples of IAs.
