"A technological frame structures the interactions between the actors of a relevant social group, and shapes their thinking and acting."The framework comes into existence once interaction among group members begins around a particular technology. When there is no activity, the framework is not built but once constructed, the framework shapes activity.
Interactions occur among actors of a relevant social group, but these interactions are not necessarily typical or characteristic of any individual of the group or the group itself.
A technological frame may include some of the following:
- problem-solving strategies
- design methods
- tacit knowledge
