Abstract: The current study proposes conceptualizing human intellectual activity in terms of mutually constitutive interactions among a distributed network of sense-making systems, rather than as individual cognition/learning situated in sociocultural context or as individual participation/apprenticeship in collective social practice. The model of distributed shared sense-making incorporates mutually constitutive interactions among sense-making systems, among mental models of sense-making systems, and between sense-making systems and their mental models. The model provides an integrated theoretical framework to support empirical examination of interactions among humans, and among humans and their cultural tools--in particular, their technological tools. The study uses the proposed theoretical framework to interpret teacher-student developing interactions in a technology-rich middle-school science classroom over the course of a year of scaffolded introduction to inquiry-based science instruction.
