3.4 Inter-Element


Thus far in Phase 3, I have looked at the relationship between the learner and the resources in her ZAA (zone of available assistance), between the learner and available MAPs and at the interchangeability between the roles of Learner-MAP and MAP-MAP. The remaining steps of Phase 3 focus on relations within and between the category elements and filters of the learner's context.


This step focuses, in particular, on ways in which relations between category elements may need to be adjusted or scaffolded to meet the learner's learning need. These actions may relate to developing the learner's awareness of the resources available to her or in designing appropriate activities which aim to challenge and progress her current level of knowledge, skills and/or experience. So, for example, we can begin to see in Phase 3 a gradual progression from developing the learner's awareness of available resources and their potential (step 3.1), through to awareness of particular resources which may act as MAPs for the learner (step 3.2) and on to consideration of the relations between these things (resources and MAPs) as framed by the category elements and filter elements (see also Phase 1 for more on these). 


To read more on the Inter-Element aspect, see pp 132-133 in Re-designing Learning Contexts.




  • this step aims to highlight the kinds of relationship which may exist or occur between different types of element in the learner's EoR
  • a particular focus is on ways in which these relationships (identified in Phases 1 and 2) may need to be adjusted to optimise scaffolding opportunities
  • the key elements are Knowledge, People, Tools and Environment, within these high level categories, various sub-level elements and their relations may also need to be considered
