Acting with Technology: Activity Theory and Interaction
A systematic presentation of activity theory, its application to interaction design, and an argument for the development of activity theory as a basis for understanding how people interact with technology.Activity theory holds that the human mind is the product of our interaction with people and artifacts in the context of everyday activity. Acting with Technology makes the case for activity theory as a basis for understanding our relationship with technology. Victor Kaptelinin and Bonnie Nardi describe activity theory's principles, history, relationship to other theoretical approaches, and application to the analysis and design of technologies. The book provides the first systematic entry-level introduction to the major principles of activity theory. It describes the accumulating body of work in interaction design informed by activity theory, drawing on work from an international community of scholars and designers. Kaptelinin and Nardi examine the notion of the object of activity, describe its use in an empirical study, and discuss key debates in the development of activity theory. Finally, they outline current and future issues in activity theory, providing a comparative analysis of the theory and its leading theoretical competitors within interaction design: distributed cogni...

STEM Activity Book: Science Technology Engineering Math: Packed with Activities and Facts (STEM Starters for
The acronym “STEM” stands for (S)cience, (T)echnology, (E)ngineering, and (M)ath. These subjects are closely related to one another and are sometimes overlooked as critical subjects in education, often dismissed by students and teachers after primary education is completed. However, the need for these subjects in our society is crucial. The aim of this book is to pique the interest of children in these areas of study, stress the importance of these subjects, and help encourage children who are interested to continue within these fields as they grow and learn. br> Whether it’s through marvelous mazes, puzzles, testing, quizzes, and other fun activities, this book introduces children to the inner-working of the world around them and might even, one day, inspire them to contribute an invention or a theory of their own.
