Abstract
In the following report, we detail how we have adapted Tim Ingold's anthropological conception of task-orientation to investigate phases of digital skill followed by an outline of a pilot research project conducted in February 2020 with eleven research participants to develop individual "task profiles". The key finding is a processual account of digital skills shows how participants had developed a set of "mediatized skills" that enabled them to weave together various human and technological productive forces in ways that included elements of coping with technology and using application software as tools to achieve tasks.
