Introdction to the symposium

Year: 2021

Author: MacCallum, Judy

Type of paper: Symposium

Cultural-historical and activity theories are based on the work of Vygotsky. Over the last few decades Vygotsky's work from the last years of his life have been translated from Russian and previous translations updated. These translations provide new insights into learning and development, and innovations in education. The symposium will provide a brief overview of these developments, and introduce cultural--historical theory as innovation.
