Nice overview, it succinctly summarizes the view Vygotsky held pertaining
to the interplay between a person's everyday experiences and the formal
register expected in the specific training grounds where rigid expectations
are reinforced.

Would researchers in the CHAT tradition feel comfortable equating
Vygotsky's concept with artifact? Does artifact have a formal overtone or
do artifacts have a more all encompassing character that transfers to
everyday experiences?
