Mind and social practice : selected writings of Sylvia Scribner by Sylvia Scribner( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 1999 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mind and Social Practice brings together published and unpublished work from Sylvia Scribner's productive and wide-ranging career. The book includes a general introduction and five section introductions by the editors, placing Scribner's work within the framework of her life, her commitments, and the political and intellectual events of the times. Arranged chronologically, the volume illustrates how Scribner's work continually built upon and advanced earlier insights and explorations. Her later, more theoretically rich writing is enhanced by an appreciation of her earlier work. The book ends with a chronology of her life and a complete bibliography of her work. Because Scribner's work was wide-ranging, Mind and Social Practice will have wide appeal - in psychology, anthropology, education, labor studies, cognitive science, literary, African studies, and the history of science. Further, since the volume places her work in the narrative context of her life, her political commitments, and her influence on others, it will also engage feminist scholars and historians of ideas

Sociocultural psychology : theory and practice of doing and knowing( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays by leading theorists and researchers in sociocultural, cognitive, developmental, and educational psychology honor the memory of Sylvia Scribner, who believed that science holds a responsibility to human welfare and understanding and whose work is recognized by the authors as seminal to their own thinking. The themes include the relationship between history and culture, the importance of context to thinking, the place of literacy in human activity and thought, and cognition in school and in the workplace. The volume presents applications of activity theory to fundamental issues in human behavior at work, in school, and in problem solving situations, and it analyzes historical-societal processes in science and culture. Sociocultural Psychology is crucial reading for researchers and graduate students in sociocultural, cognitive, developmental, and educational psychology

Knowledge Acquisition at Work. IEE Brief Number 2 by Sylvia Scribner( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An exploratory investigation attempted to determine how learning at work actually takes place and in what ways learning on the job differs from classroom learning. The study was based on extensive observations and interviews over a 5-year period at two manufacturing plants that implemented a computer-based system known as Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP). (MRP is both a computer system and a theory of manufacturing, designed to integrate information from all aspects of a company's operations to guide employees making production and inventory decisions.) The occupation of planner was selected for the core study since a planner within an MRP environment uses the system in relation to everyday production knowledge. Three knowledge domains were identified: MRP as a theoretical system, practical production knowledge, and functional production knowledge. The study found the following: (1) daily, everyday work activities are settings for learning; (2) without extensive academic, professional, or even on-the-job training, people can achieve conceptual understanding on the job; (3) how the workplace is set up, not the presence of technology, enhances or inhibits learning; and (4) because people come to their jobs from a large variety of routes, educational planners need to consider providing multiple and alternative educational forms as being as important as trying to design the one best training program. The study concluded that the workplace clearly is a learning environment and that people can learn formal concepts through work, not only in the classroom. (KC)
