3.5 Inter-Filter


This step builds on step 4 of Phase 1. In that earlier Phase, consideration was given to ways in which available resources were filtered, i.e. what kinds of constraints and/or potentials might influence or impact upon the ways in which resources might be taken up and used by the learner. In this Phase, as with all seven steps in this stage, a focus on inter-filter relations is used to identify ways in which those filters identified earlier might need to be adjusted or ways in which appropriate scaffolds might be introduced to enable the learner to interact more effectively with available resources.


As can be seen in this and preceding steps, a constant focus of Phase 3 is on optimising the learner's context through appropriate adjustment and/or scaffolding. This step, for example, might involve adjustment to rules of access or behaviour in learner's interactions with technology and/or other resources (people, tools, environment).
