Murphy, Michael P. A. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
One outcome of the increasing interest from philosophy of education circles in the work of Giorgio Agamben has been the possibility of apparently small alterations to enact a radical emancipatory change.

Cardenas-Herrera, John Jairo – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021
This article studies the invention of the classroom in a time of crisis -- the one experienced after the independence war and in the framework of the Republic of Colombia building process (1819-1830).

Devlin, Ann Sloan; Anderson, Alaina; Hession-Kunz, Sarah; Zou, Amy – Learning Environments Research, 2022
When classroom facilities are out of date, students complain (Habaci et al., in Procedia Soc Behav Sci 64:58-64 2012, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.sbspro.2012.11.008). But, before students arrive on campus, what do they know about their classrooms? Media has changed how people acquire information; websites are second only to college tours in…

However, this literature sometimes overlooks the experiences of learners by focusing on the design and practice of teaching in active learning classrooms. The…
