Abstract

Analysis of the
applicability of a learning technology requires evaluating how the affordances
of the technology respond to the users’ needs. In our study, we examine
affordances of a digital learning environment. We concentrate on the
organizational and socio-interactional affordances, which are based on
technological affordances. Our analysis shows how organizational and
socio-interactional affordances emerge from the use of technological
affordances. We offer an analytical understanding of the dynamics of
affordances and how they can be assessed to help educators to better understand
how the learning process and the use of affordances can be facilitated and
supported.
