Learners take initiative participating. ’s (2003) model, like that of Anghileri (2006), drew on extracts from interactions between adults and preschool-aged children to exemplify the different components. Rogoff et al. (2003) considered that it is the integration of the components which contributes to the different traditions for organising learning. Certainly, the components of intent participation recognise the role of the child or learner in the interaction. There is an overlap in some aspects of both models; for example, Anghileri’s model highlighted the need for a teacher to identify meaningful contexts whilst Rogoff et al.
