Example text

Culture, History and the Activities of Learning Many chapters in this book discuss the basic concepts of culture, history, activity and learning. What matters most to me are the relationships among them: how do we successfully learn through participation in social activities to become members of a culture whose long history is not yet over? When we start from the concept of learning alone, we tend to think only of the person who learns and to forget that what we learn is how to live successfully in a world of other people, and how we learn is by participating in the activities of our community.

Even the speaking of a sentence, or the teaching of a lesson, however, has such a trajectory through time, a micro-history; and we have to pose the question of how these little histories of moments and hours come to add up to the longer history of a life or a community. The notion of ‘a culture’ or ‘a community’ or even ‘a language’ becomes much more complex (and interesting) when we look at it in this historical perspective. There are no known communities where all the members participate in all the activities (tell all the traditional stories, perform all the traditional rituals, do all the typical daily routines); there is always a ‘division of labour’ in the sense that some people do some activities and others don’t.

To understand the way in which people are enculturated into a view of learning, and of themselves as learners, we need to focus on the situated moment (see, for example, the chapters by Carr, Mercer, and Pontecorvo and Sterponi, in this volume). To describe the progress that is made, as a result of such interactions, towards a set of valued educational goals, we need the language of psychology. Cultural–historical activity theory starts from and works with the insight that these three discourses are simultaneously legitimate and essentially and valuably complementary.
