About the book

The idea that children's learning is influenced by economic, political, ecological, cultural and other influences is being focused upon by educators world-wide. Cultural-historical theory, which has developed into learning activity theory, is not a new idea, but has its roots in the work of Lev S. Vygotsky in Russia more than 50 years ago.

The editors of this volume point out that there is a huge amount of scientific knowledge from different disciplines that could be a basis for the necessary changes in teaching and learning both in and out of school, on different educational levels and under different institutional conditions. This book puts together the best and latest of this knowledge.
