ABSTRACT
The aim of this exploratory study was to determine whether technological aids (ICT) can support low skilled apprentices in the work integration process. Two users are involved herein: the apprentices themselves and their teachers, who are in charge of programming the devices to help them learn work tasks. A selfregulation model of work activity was used for two experiments, one to evaluate the "programmer" role (teacher's work activity) and the other for the "user" role (apprentice's work activity). The findings illustrate that ICT are not necessarily useful and usable in actual work situations. Following a developmental approach (Constructivist Ergonomics), it is fundamental to consider work activities for all stakeholders involved with an aim to develop aids that can be a valuable learning resource at work rather than being a barrier.
