Listen to Your Tools and Materials
September/October 2006 (vol. 23 no. 5)
pp. 74-80
Donald Sch?n introduced the concepts of reflection in action and reflection on action in his studies of performing professionals.

Applying Schön's ideas to our conversation with software design materials can make them more pleasant and effective.
