The Materiality of Learning - Technology and Knowledge in Educational Practice

£18.99

Product description

Very good like new condition with little to no wear. Internally clean and bright.

Based on classroom ethnography, Srensen compares traditional learning materials with digital technologies. He shows how these gave rise to different forms of knowledge and different ways of teachers and pupils being present in the classroom and computer lab and proposes six steps to the study of the materiality of learning. The field of educational research lacks a methodology for the study of learning that does not begin with humans, their aims, and their interests. The Materiality of Learning seeks to overcome this human-centered mentality by developing a novel spatial approach to the materiality of learning. Drawing on science and technology studies (STS), Estrid Srensen compares an Internet-based 3D virtual environment project in a fourth-grade class with the class's work with traditional learning materials, including blackboards, textbooks, notebooks, pencils, and rulers. Taking into account pupils' and teachers' physical bodies, Professor Srensen analyzes the multiple forms of technology, knowledge, and presence that are enacted with the materials. Featuring detailed ethnographic descriptions and useful end-of-chapter summaries, this book is an important reference for professionals and graduate or postgraduate students interested in a variety of fields, including educational studies, educational psychology, social anthropology, and STS.
