According to the viewpoint of this paper, artifacts can be regarded as a socio-<br>technological arrangement. Further, agency is not independent from a socio-<br>technological arrangement but is something emerging from a socio-technological ar-<br>rangement, while agency has traditionally been defined as a human capacity of having<br> needs and preferences and of seeing possible actions. If so, the design of an artifact is<br> not the design of a single artifact but the design of a socio-technological arrangement<br> and of agency. Thus, in this paper, first of all, we attempt concretely to analyze the<br> design of an artifact as that of socio-technological arrangement, based on our field-<br>works concerning the cases of open data and integrated learning. Second, we show how<br> agency emerges from a socio-technological arrangement, also based on our fieldworks.<br> Third, we propose some viewpoints for designing artifacts dependent on the first and<br> the second analysis.
