Mediation is something we’ve always learned to do without using this particular name, when we trained in making oral or written summaries, retelling, or explaining what somebody or your group had said (reporting to plenary after small group work), for instance.

So – mediation happens in writing and in speaking, when we intervene to facilitate understanding, comprehension to third parties.
