Situated microgenesis. Studies on knowledge transformations

  • Madelon Saada-Robert
  • Kristine Balslev


This theoretical contribution deals with the exploration of microgenetic studies, as roots of an actual trend that analyses verbal interactions in the classroom or in any other place where knowledge is involved. From the founders, the situated microgenetic studies take the research project of inquiries on transforming knowledge, while they draw them apart by the integration of the learning and teaching processes as research objects, being involved together in knowledge acquisition.
