This paper compares three theoretical approaches that appeared in the computerization literature in the early 1990s. It examines the way in which structuration, situated action and distributed cognition conceptualize action, technology and interaction. This analysis serves as the basis for an assessment of the contribution of these approaches and of the research agenda they propose.
