A critical analysis on "Active Learning" in the light of Cultural-Historical Activity Theory (CHAT): Implications to Physics Education and to experimental activities as a particular case.
(The International Commission on Physics Education (ICPE) Commission C14 of the International Union of P ure and Applied Physics (IUPAP)The European Physical Society Physics Education Division (EPS PED)The Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles Un iversity in PraguePraga, 2013-08-05)
This is a research paper in which we discuss “active learning” in the light of Cultural-Historical Activity Theory (CHAT), a powerful framework to analyze human activity, including teaching and learning process and the ...
Shunt active compensation based on the Conservative Power Theory current's decomposition
Considering the operation of shunt active compensators, such as active power filters, this paper proposes possible compensation strategies by means of the recent formulation of the Conservative Power Theory (CPT). The CPT ...
From a systems theory of sociology to modeling the onset and evolution of criminality
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2015-09)
This paper proposes a systems theory approach to the modeling of onset and evolution of criminality in a territory. This approach aims at capturing the complexity features of social systems. Complexity is related to the ...

Representations as tools of appropriation, creating meaning through activities.
(Charles UniversityPraga, 2013-08-05)
Based on some constructs of the Activity Theory (Leontiev, 1978), we point to the need to develop activities that reveal the meaning of representations. We examine use of representations in teaching and propose some ...

(Univ Estadual Paulista Julio Mesquita Filho, Fac Ciencias & Tecnologia, 2016-05-01)
This study aims to inserts into the discuss about human development and the role-playing, intending to make contributions, from a reading of the Historical-Cultural Theory, for childhood education. It approaches that the ...
Expansive movements in the development of mathematical modeling: Analysis from an Activity theory perspective
This research was conducted during an online continuing education course for mathematics teachers, whose core focus was modeling and applications. We studied the interactions of one group of two teachers, who worked ...
