The Interplay of Intimations and Implementations: Generating New Discourse with New Symbolic Tools.
Journal of the Learning Sciences, v11 n2-3 p319-57 2002
Analyzes two classroom episodes guided by the assumption that thinking can be conceptualized as an activity of communication and learning can be regarded as modifying and extending one's discursive ways. Aims to uncover the ways in which the discursive uses of such new symbolic tools were interactively constructed by the students. Concludes that the construction process is extremely complex because of a certain inherent circularity of this process. (Author/MM)
