The Changing Social Spaces of Learning: Mapping New Mobilities
Leander, Kevin M.; Phillips, Nathan C.; Taylor, Katherine Headrick
Review of Research in Education, v34 n1 p329-394 2010
Writing on contemporary culture and social life, sociologists and cultural theorists have been describing new or changing forms of movement, variously described as cultural "flows," "liquid life," or a "networked society." The change in such movements or mobilities of people, media, material goods, and other social phenomena, including the reach or extension of such movements, connections between "global" and "local life," the creation of new spaces and places, and new speeds and rhythms of everyday social practice, is arguably the most important contrast between contemporary social life and that of just a decade or two ago. Despite these changes and longer conversations about their meanings in a range of disciplines, mobilities and their relations to learning within education are still understudied and undertheorized. This article maps current and relevant engagements with mobility and learning across conceptual and empirical studies. (Contains 1 table.)
