ABSTRACT

This paper illuminates the role of activity theory in addressing theoretical and practical challenges raised by the growing role of digital technology in human activity. We explore and review the role of activity theory in the study of crucial digital technologies such as social media, smartphones, blockchain, artificial intelligence, and algorithmic decision-making, considering the unique ways that activity theory accommodates such technologies and can generate novel insights. We identify several apparent limitations of activity theory with an eye toward promoting its development and ability to incorporate modern perspectives and conditions. An important contribution of this paper is to stimulate future research that brings together activity theorists to study, in greater depth, the impacts of digital technology, and to help generate ideas on how it should shape future human activity. The themes covered are pressing questions not only for activity theorists, but for the ways we live, work, and play. We suggest activity theory can play a larger role in discourse on digital technologies, and their impact and evolution over time.

在数字世界中借助活动理论向前发展

摘要

本文阐述了活动理论在应对数字技术在人类活动中日益重要的作用提出的理论和实践挑战中的作用。考虑到活动理论适应此类技术并产生新颖见解的独特方式,我们探索并回顾了活动理论在关键数字技术(如社交媒体,智能手机,区块链,人工智能和算法决策)研究中的作用。我们确定活动理论的几个明显局限性,以期促进其发展以及融合现代观点和条件的能力。本文的一项重要贡献是促进了未来的研究,该研究将活动理论家召集到一起,以更深入地研究数字技术的影响,并有助于就如何塑造未来人类活动产生想法。涵盖的主题不仅是活动理论家的紧迫问题,也是我们生活,工作和娱乐方式的紧迫问题。我们建议活动理论可以在有关数字技术的讨论及其随着时间的影响和演变中发挥更大的作用。
