Jornet, Alfredo; Roth, Wolff-Michael; Krange, Ingeborg – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2016
In this article we present an analytical framework for approaching transfer episodes--episodes in which participants declare or can be declared to bring prior experience to bear on the current task organization. We build on Dewey's writings about the continuity of experience, Vygotsky's ideas of unit analysis, as well as more recent developments…

Kim, Mijung; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2016
In (science) education, primacy is given to agency, the human capability to act and, in this, to learn. However, phenomenological philosophers and societal-historical psychologists point out that agency, the purposeful (intentional) engagement with the world, is only the effect of a much more profound capacity: passibility, the capacity to be…

Emad, Gholam Reza; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2016
Situated learning theories such as communities of practice provide a rich conceptual framework for analyzing the processes by which newcomers become full participants in the communities they enter. However, some research shows that these concepts have shortcomings for theorizing learning in formal educational settings especially when it comes to…

Roth, Wolff-Michael – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2015
In this tribute, I articulate the contributions Michiel van Eijck made to science education, as experienced through our relation, which ranged from supervisor and colleague to friend. His ecological thinking about human knowing, which was reflected in his spiritual inclinations, constitutes his legacy that will have an impact on our field for…

Roth, Wolff-Michael; Maheux, Jean-François – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2015
Mathematics educators have shown increasing interest in theorizing knowing and learning as something alive or as something that comes alive through the involvement of the body. Almost all current efforts attempt doing so by focusing on the body in which the otherwise invisible living being exhibits itself, thereby failing to consider everything…

Roth, Wolff-Michael – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2015
For many students, the experience with science tends to be alienating and uprooting. In this study, I take up Simone Weil's concepts of "enracinement" (rooting) and "déracinement" (uprooting) to theorize the root of this alienation, the confrontation between children's familiarity with the world and unfamiliar/strange…

Roth, Wolff-Michael – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2015
In most epistemologies, practical actions and speech are the consequences of thought. In this study, I provide three case studies of highly educated scientists producing aspects of graphs only to erase these as soon as they have been drawn. The case studies are consistent with an alternative approach, already formulated by L. S. Vygotsky and M.…

Jornet, Alfredo; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Science Education, 2015
The aim of this study is to advance current understanding of the transactional processes that characterize students' sense-making practices when they are confronted with multiple representations of scientific phenomena. Data for the study are derived from a design experiment that involves a technology-rich, inquiry-based sequence of…

Mavin, Timothy John; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Journal of Workplace Learning, 2015
Purpose: This study aims to contribute to current research on team learning patterns. It specifically addresses some negative perceptions of the job performance learning pattern. Design/methodology/approach: Over a period of three years, qualitative and quantitative data were gathered on pilot learning in the workplace. The instructional modes…

Roth, Wolff-Michael – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2015
Education appears to be in a perpetual crisis. In this article, I suggest that one of the key contributing factors in educational crisis is the institution of schooling, which re/produces the failures to learn and, thereby, contributes to the re/production of inequities that it (schooling) is supposed to overcome. Ideologies and practices intended…

Roth, Wolff-Michael; Maheux, Jean-François – Curriculum Inquiry, 2015
Standard approaches to thinking in the mathematics curriculum depict it as the result of some stable constructions in the mind of the person, constructions that are the results of individual efforts in the mind of subjects or of collective efforts that are then appropriated by and into the mind of individuals. Such work does not appreciate what…

El Kadri, Michele Salles; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Teaching Education, 2015
The teaching practicum is often considered as a compulsory activity for enculturating new members into the teacher community by providing opportunities to experience teaching in action. However, the practicum is rarely conceptualized in terms of its transformative potential. In this study, we report the results of a two-year ethnography study of a…

El Kadri, Michele Salles; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Teacher Development, 2015
Although the importance of understanding the social and cultural processes mediating pre-service teachers' expansion of the power to act has been increasingly recognized lately, the way the concept of "agency" is portrayed in most of the studies focuses almost exclusively on the subject of activity and therefore, there is insufficient…

Karpudewan, Mageswary; Roth, Wolff-Michael; Bin Abdullah, Mohd Nor Syahrir – International Journal of Science Education, 2015
Climate change generally and global warming specifically have become a common feature of the daily news. Due to widespread recognition of the adverse consequences of climate change on human lives, concerted societal effort has been taken to address it (e.g. by means of the science curriculum). This study was designed to test the effect that…

Ercikan, Kadriye; Roth, Wolff-Michael; Asil, Mustafa – Teachers College Record, 2015
Background/Context: Two key uses of international assessments of achievement have been (a) comparing country performances for identifying the countries with the best education systems and (2) generating insights about effective policy and practice strategies that are associated with higher learning outcomes. Do country rankings really reflect the…
