Within this talk, a new (small) theory of learning with technology will be presented, which is grounded in methodical culturalism and activity theory. The theory boils down to grounding the development of rich professional competence in sharing language through social interaction, mediated by tools.

One model of putting this into practice is in using natural language processing tools to capture conceptual knowledge from learners’ communicative exchange, complemented by a represention of their practices of e.g. web interaction with a human-language-like mash-up scripting language.

Using a potent combination of latent semantic analysis and social network analysis, the learning of individuals and groups can then be dismantled and subjected to (computational) inspection.

A set of application examples rounds up the talk.
