Expanding Our View of Authentic Learning: Bridging in and Out-of-School Experiences
Quigley, Cassie
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v9 n1 p115-122 Mar 2014
In this review, I explore the affordances of Wolff-Michael Roth and Pei-Ling Hsu's article, "Space, relations and the learning of science" which brings attention to a largely unexplored area of science education research--the importance of spatial organization within the laboratory. This forum piece examines the four components of authentic learning and how these components relate to the experiences presented in the original article. Then, it highlights the differences for in and out-of-school experiences as they relate to both authentic learning and episodes presented by Roth and Hsu.
