The European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics in Edinburgh

Submitted by Webmanager on September 4, 2012 – 12:12No Comment

The European Conference on Cognitive Ergonomics in Edinburgh was held the 31st of August 2012.

The first keynote was by Yvonne Rogers . She spoke about cognition as practice/’in the wild’ as opposed to ‘in the lab’. The following keynote was by Philippe Palanque. He spoke of the task models as a central artifact for designing high risk computer systems. The last keynote was by Mike Wheeler. He spoke of cognition and the mind.

Appropriation was a concept used throughout the conference. The featured picture shows Susanne Bødker presenting our paper, the merit of which is to unfold Wertsch’s definition of appropriation as a thinking tool for the evaluation of user-accounts of artifact use, by;

(a) anticipation
(b) initial familiarity
(c) development of repertoires of routines
(d) development of new forms of use
