The paper reports a study of a videoconference-based environment in decentralized university education and factors determining the success of teaching and learning in the environment. The focus of the paper is on the role of a person having the formal resp...
Designing Technological Support for Meaning Making in Museum Learning: An Activity-Theoretical Framework
Found in: Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences
By Victor Kaptelinin
Issue Date:January 2011
pp. 1-10
The paper proposes a conceptual framework, informed by activity theory, for designing technological support for meaning making in museum learning. The model describes a complex interaction between two activity contexts, the one associated with learners' ow...
UMEA: translating interaction histories into project contexts
Found in: Proceedings of the conference on Human factors in computing systems (CHI '03)
By Victor Kaptelinin
