The Transformation of Ergonomic Affordances into Cultural Affordances: The Case of the Alnuset System
Chiappini, Giampaolo
International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education, v19 n4 p135-140 2012
Is it possible to study the ergonomic affordances offered by a system designed for educational aims and their transformation into cultural affordances? To this purpose, what references can we adopt? This work describes the theoretical framework used to realise this study referring to AlNuSet, a system realised within the EC ReMath project to support the teaching and learning of algebra. The framework is centred on the notions of ergonomic and cultural affordance introduced Turner & Turner and the cycle of expansive learning elaborated by Engestrom. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
