Emergent Fields through Adaptation and Identity: Overcoming Social Distance
DeGennaro, Donna; Brown, Tiffany
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v4 n1 p77-87 Mar 2009
We examine the inseparability of one's environment with the elements of adaptation and identity. Specifically, we revisit the Project H.O.M.E. learning environment as we suggest that the entities of adaption and environment are not only binding, but also naturally in constant flux as they interact with each other. Contrary to nature, however, the social distance between the instructors and learners is the result of a human construct that often hinders adaptation and identity development. We address the factors that afforded participants overcoming social distance and ultimately cultivating a shift in the learning structure of Project H.O.M.E.
