Open peer commentary on the article “Autopoiesis and 4E+ Cognition in the Design of Digital Learning Affordances” by Claudio Aguayo. Abstract: I first consider the question of whether the technology in any way contributes to technology-enhanced learning (TEL) systems’ being autopoietic. Secondly, if we think of TEL systems as autopoietic (and as relatively complex agents), it becomes unclear how we can guarantee that they remain efficient over time. Lastly, although technology in education can be very useful, it is not clear why technology-enhanced learning systems (designed from the perspective of the 4E+ cognition framework), should necessarily, and prominently, lead to more engagement, meaning, and relevance compared to learning environments where the embodied and social nature of the human mind is emphasized instead of technology.
