Summary Human learning, reasoning and thinking, and the different sites in which these activities take place, are the focus of this book. It presents the results of research into the nature of learning and the influence of different contexts and factors within the context of learning, the constraints that contexts place on reasoning and learning, and the nature of learning when using tools and artefacts. It also addresses the nature of the influence of technology on learning, focusing especially on information technology and how it can influence any type of learning situation. Learning Sites: Social and Technological Resources for Learning is one of the outcomes of the European Science Foundation's research programme on "Learning in Humans and Machines". It will be of interest to educational scientists, sociologists, psychologists, cognitive scientists and researchers in the field of human-computer interaction.
