Affordances of Online Technologies: More than the Properties of the Technology
Australian Educational Computing Volume 22, Number 2, ISSN 1443-833X e-ISSN 1443-833X
This paper argues that concepts derived from affordance theories are highly useful in understanding the role of online technologies in learning. However, it is suggested that the value of this approach is maximised when the focus is moved away from the inherent properties of the technologies to the opportunities for learning provided by the total context in which the technologies are embedded. Real world scenarios are used to illustrate this approach to the interpretation and application of affordance theories.
