    Abstract

    As part of an on-going research project (2015-2017) at The National Centre for Vocational Pedagogy, Metropolitan University College, we are studying why and how vocational teachers understand and design for boundary crossing through the use of ICT-based artefacts. The research project is based on a sociocultural framework with cultural-historical activity theory (CHAT) guiding the initial phases. In this short paper, we present preliminary findings based on six ethnographic interviews with vocational teachers, and we zoom in on the teachers' experiences with central elements of their bounded systems. We found that these teachers use ICT as mediating tool within a single system, but rarely as boundary object in and between systems.
