Human Activity Modeling: Toward A Pragmatic Integration of Activity Theory and Usage-Centered Design
In this chapter, activity theory and usage-centered design are outlined and the connections between the two are highlighted and simple extensions to the models of usage- centered design are introduced that together succinctly model the salient and most essential features of the activities within which tool use is embedded.
