How The Activity Learning Theory Works

How The Activity Learning Theory Works | Blended Education | Scoop.it
How The Activity Learning Theory Works 

Vygotsky’s earlier concept of mediation, which encompassed learning alongside others (Zone of Proximal Development) and through interaction with artifacts, was the basis for Engeström’s version of Activity Theory (known as Scandinavian Activity Theory). Engeström’s approach was to explain human thought processes not simply on the basis of the individual, but in the wider context of the individual’s interactions within the social world through artifacts, and specifically in situations where activities were being produced.

In Activity Theory people (actors) use external tools (e.g. hammer, computer, car) and internal tools (e.g. plans, cognitive maps) to achieve their goals. In the social world there are many artifacts, which are seen not only as objects, but also as things that are embedded within culture, with the result that every object has cultural and/or social significance.

Tools (which can limit or enable) can also be brought to bear on the mediation of social interaction, and they influence both the behavior of the actors (those who use the tools) and also the social structure within which the actors exist (the environment, tools, artifacts). For further reading, here is Engeström’s own overview of 3 Generations of Activity Theory development. The first figure shows Second Generation AT as it is usually presented in the literature.

Many times when we learn we use many tools. They may be our minds or they may be outside objects. This is how we put them together and use it for the better.

David Bramley's curator insight, July 6, 2015 12:47 PM

This post is from 2012, but I guess MIT would want to claim they were ahead of the game!

 

I like it because it looks at a definition of blended learning and poses design questions.  But I particularly like the, 'Pre-course - Course - Post-course model it suggests, with the Course element having face-to-face interaction.  Looking at blended design in this way can help answer the question:  What is the best use of the face-to-face time I have available?

This research paper provides a more detailed account of Blended Learning.  It discusses real world examples that can easy be applied to the Flipped Classroom.

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Blended Education | Scoop.it
Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.
