Re: [xmca] Cultural memory

Greetings Hugh,

I am new to Activity Theory as well.
Check out Cole's book "Cultural Psychology" (1996) - Chapter 9 Creating Model Activity Systems; specifically page 276,  Creating the Activity: Question-Asking-Reading (QAR).
You will find the organization of this activity most interesting.  I love the idea that 'various roles are assigned', thus giving participants a clear goal within a shared space.
