activity theory talk by prof. sten ludvigsen

My notes taken at the University of Cape Town at a seminar given by Prof. Sten Ludvigsen of the University of Oslo

Notes:

When using Activity Theory based research you need to ask yourself – What is new?

Best for:

  • Empirical research
  • In a regulated environment (like schools or workplaces)
  • In complex situations

Activity Theory is an idea of:

  1. Object orientation
  2. Mutual constitution
  3. Mediation by tools and signs
  4. Historicity
  5. Multi-voicedness of activity
  6. Contradictions as source of change
  7. Zone of proximal development ~ expansion

A poem written on a photo I took of a Bakers Zoo Biscuit

By Francine Ramirez:

Fly away little bird be free
Fly so high so high so free

Travel skies and mountain highs
Swim the oceans far and wide
Fill yourself with natures gift
Morning’s dew a day a lifts

Fly away little bird be free
Fly so high so high so free
