Socialisation and artefacts – a sociotechnical perspective
(English)Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The relationship between individuals, technology and society increasingly attracts attention within different fields of research. For example, the focus on the interplay between man and technologies has given new and valuable perspectives on how sociocultural patterns penetrate human action. However, there is still much to do in educational research in relation to the ongoing discussion about the politics of technology. In this paper we will especially focus on the ethical and the political dimensions of technology within educational contexts. Taking the point of departure in our previous research on curricula, textbooks and videorecorded classroom situations, it is shown how a sociotechnical perspective can be used to give a deeper understanding of the relation between artefacts, human action and meaning making in educational settings.
