Abstract: This symposium introduces the study of formation of concepts in collective activities (concept formation "in the wild") as a new research field in learning sciences. Using meditational and activity-oriented theoretical frameworks, the contributors analyze concept formation in diverse activities, asking: What are the key characteristics and mechanisms of emergence of functional concepts embedded in activities and what analytical dimensions might be fruitful for the investigation and facilitation of the formation of such concepts? What are the pontentials and limitations of different mediational means and multimodal instrumentalities in the formation and development of functional concepts? How are volition and future-oriented agency intertwined with the formation of functional concepts?
