About this product
- DescriptionThe Transformation of Learning gives an overview of some significant advances of the cultural-historical activity theory, also kwn as CHAT in the educational domain. Developments are described with respect to both the theoretical framework and research. The book's main focus is on the evolution of the learning concept and school practices under the influence of cultural-historical activity theory. Activity theory has contributed to this transformation of views on learning, both conceptually and practically.
