I have explored the dynamics of agency in the learning environments of adulthood - in relation to a complex and technology-mediated everyday life. The research is based on cultural-historical perspective and the conceptual-analytical framework of Psychology from the standpoint of the subject. Important concepts and starting points include the zone of proximal development, the conduct of everyday life, zone of free movement, zone of promoted action, agency and participation, the subject's perspective and experience and subject’s grounds for action (FOG).
