Activity Theory in HCI: Fundamentals and Reflections by Victor Kaptelinin,Bonnie Nardi

By Victor Kaptelinin,Bonnie Nardi

job thought -- a conceptual framework initially constructed via Aleksei Leontiev -- has its roots within the socio-cultural culture in Russian psychology. The foundational inspiration of the idea is human task, that is understood as functional, mediated, and transformative interplay among people and the area. because the early Nineteen Nineties, job concept has been a visual landmark within the theoretical panorama of Human-Computer interplay (HCI). besides another frameworks, reminiscent of allotted cognition and phenomenology, it validated itself as a number one post-cognitivist technique in HCI and interplay layout. during this publication we talk about the conceptual foundations of job conception and its contribution to HCI research.

After making the case for concept in HCI and in brief discussing the contribution of task conception to the sector (Chapter One) we introduce the ancient roots, major principles, and ideas of job conception (Chapter Two). After that we current in-depth analyses of 3 concerns which we reflect on of specific value to present advancements in HCI and interplay layout, specifically: company (Chapter Three), event (Chapter Four), and activity-centric computing (Chapter Five). We finish the booklet with reflections on demanding situations and clients for extra improvement of task conception in HCI (Chapter Six).
