In the phenomenographic tradition, the process of learning is usually described as becoming capable of discerning a phenomenon in qualitatively new ways. In a project that focuses on what it takes and means to learn technological systems, we will study the relationship between learning in this sense, and the variation and invariance in the moment-to-moment manifestation of such an emerging capability. The object of learning, technological systems, comprises complex systems of technical and human components that facilitate much of the experienced needs of modern society, constituted of the transformation and transport of matter, energy and information. The context of the study is the Swedish compulsory school.
To allow for such a detailed investigation, the empirical design includes a teaching plan, jointly developed by involved teachers and researchers, which leads to a variation of pedagogical activities across contexts in which different technological systems may be encountered. The design includes the collection and analysis of video and audio data, and discussions with teachers and students. The different communicative situations which focus on technological systems are bound together by the individuals involved, who are working, collaboratively as well as individually, to develop their experience of technological systems. The presentation focus challenges and open questions.
