Progression in ICT capability is facilitated through broadening and elaborating contexts and ICT environments, and using more sophisticated software in response to the demands of tasks. However, the increased use of sophisticated software per se does not constitute progression in ICT capability. This may constitute little more than the development of further computer-situated techniques. More sophisticated software should be used because the task demands it – not for its own sake. The aim is to broaden and elaborate contexts, and use more sophisticated software ‘as a consequence of the increasing elaboration of curriculum contexts, not as an end in itself’ (Birnbaum 1990: 91).
This includes the teacher, the other resources, the other learners, the cultural context, the prior knowledge of the individual, the opportunities offered by the technology, and the structural and constraining features of the problem to be addressed. The framework we use to analyse interactions in activity situations is based on a model of affordances, constraints and abilities developed by Greeno (1994), based on the work of Gibson (1977; 1986). We use the term affordances to describe a potential for action, the capacity of an environment or object to enable pupils to achieve their goals within a particular problem situation.
