Vygotskiana, now in Second Life

Meanwhile, while processing my pictures and records from AE08, I was dragged into SL by a friend of mine who told me that UC San Diego agreed (very kind of them, thank you) to SLcast the Second (lol) Congress of the International Society for Cultural and Activity Research (ISCAR) – more info, including SLurls can be found here.

The SCAR is considered one of the leading research bodies in the areas of both general Vygotskian theory of development and the Theory of Activity specifically (though themselves they describe it rather vaguely as studying “social, cultural and historical dimensions of human practices where the context, or environment, is seen as of paramount importance“).

We didn’t the stream in SL though (as yet), either because it was too early, or because the streaming itself was not functioning properly (I found that it start commenting only from the browser, but from SL viewer. We’ll see later, may be the e-weather will be better.
