Learning Contexts as Ecologies of Resources: A Unifying Approach to the Interdisciplinary Development of Technology Rich Learning Activities

Authors:
Rosemary Luckin

Keywords: Keywords - context, zone of collaboration, ecology of resources model, distributed scaffolding.

Abstract:
This paper addresses the problem of how to develop a conceptualization of context that can support the development of technology-rich learning activities. The term technology-rich encompasses mobile, hybrid and on-line learning approaches and the work reported here is intended to bridge these different approaches. In this paper we suggest that a learner-specific definition of context can ground research across mobile, hybrid and on-line learning. We discuss a definition of context that is theoretically grounded in the socio-cultural approach to learning and that has been used to develop the Ecology of Resources model. This model is an abstraction that can be shared between social and technical researchers and practitioners to support analysis and to generate technology design. An example that demonstrates the way that the Ecology of Resources model is empirically as well as theoretically grounded is presented. This example is used to support the proposal that the Ecology of Resources model can be used as a design tool to sensitize designers to the importance of each learner’s context.
