Baker, Bernadette M.; Saari, Antti – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
This paper offers an overview of contemporary inscriptions of mindfulness, their conditions of possibility, and examples of the braining of mind on which contemporary neuro-meets-contemplative turns are dependent. We examine key nineteenth-century events integral to the formation of Biologies Old, in which historic debates over "the death of…

Sengupta, Pratim; Clark, Doug – Educational Technology, 2016
The authors extend the theory of "disciplinary integration" of games for science education beyond the virtual world of games, and identify two key themes of a practice-based theoretical commitment to science learning: (1) materiality in the classroom, and (2) iterative design of multiple, complementary, symbolic inscriptions (e.g.,…

Springgay, Stephanie – Research in Education, 2016
The idea that the world is composed of moving and constantly transforming materialities that are vibrant, quivering, and indeterminate has shifted how we think about human and non-human relations. Matter is not a stable entity, but one that is continuously vibrating and differentiating. This materialism is crucial for thinking about possible…

Applis, Stefan; Tserediani, Nino – Ethnography and Education, 2020
This study focuses on the spa town of Tsqaltubo in western Georgia. Since 2010, Tsqaltubo has been seeing a gradual rise in tourism. The town's history as a spa resort in the Soviet period has given it a repository of tourist experience to fall back on. An ongoing complication in this development arises from the occupation of the now-decaying…

McGregor, Kristidel – Gender and Education, 2020
In recent educational discourse, public schools can be seen as sites of feminine power, as the majority of teachers are female and some gains have been made in girls' school achievement. However, some theorists argue that schools are too feminine, and thus boys' achievement is at risk. This article refutes this claim, and shows that schools are…

Gallagher, Michael – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2020
This paper concerns children's relations with the geological aspects of digital media technologies. Using ideas from media theory, I develop a new conceptual framework for childhood studies research on digital media that goes beyond the dominant focus on children's use of technology. I argue that studies of use would benefit from being linked up…

Kelly, Frances – Teaching in Higher Education, 2020
This paper takes a soon-to-be disestablished satellite university campus as its site of enquiry. The campus has been an educational institution since the early twentieth century. Shortly it will be decommissioned, its future undetermined; at this moment in time it seems fitting to critically reflect on this place and the ideas and work of teaching…

Homrighausen, Jonathan – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2020
Although recent scholarship on the biblical studies survey course has sought to bring in a wide array of new methods and ways to incorporate the Bible into the broader liberal arts curriculum, a dearth of tactics for employing biblical manuscripts in the classroom remains. This article details one experience crafting two class sessions for an…

Taylor, Carol A.; Fairchild, Nikki – Ethnography and Education, 2020
This article makes the case for Posthumanist Institutional Ethnography (PIE). In doing so, it builds on and diverges from Dorothy E. Smith's post-structural work on Institutional Ethnography (IE), and speaks into recent discussions on the contested nature of ethnography. Drawing on the work of Donna Haraway, Karen Barad and Jane Bennet, and on…

Pomerantz, Shauna; Raby, Rebecca – Gender and Education, 2020
This article adds to the literature on smart girlhood by exploring the topic through Karen Barad's theory of post-human performativity. We focus on the transcripts of two participants from a larger study on girls and academic success in Canada in order to highlight the material, discursive, embodied, and temporal entanglements that co-produce the…

Blaikie, Fiona – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2020
In this visual essay, drawing on worlding as method evokes attunement to being, becoming, and belonging through ordinary experiences and affects, where we tell multimodal stories framed by theories and practices that offer reconsiderations of the arts, pedagogy, and scholarship as praxis. Contextualized by youth subcultures, porous visual…

Carmody, Cathy; Duffy, Sean; Brown, Lynne; Del Fabbro, Letitia – International Journal of Work-Integrated Learning, 2020
Student success in nursing degree programs is contingent upon work-integrated learning (WIL) success, particularly given the mandated curriculum requirement for clinical hours in WIL environments. The impacts of COVID-19 disrupted study and resulted in anxiety for nursing students. For most first year nursing students this also included an…

Pigg, Stacey – College Composition and Communication, 2014
This article details the material, locational, and time-use dimensions of student writing processes in two networked social spaces. Drawing on case examples, the findings show how composing habits grounded in the materiality of places can build persistence for learning in a mobile culture. Public social spaces support these habits, enabling some…

Hetherington, Lindsay; Hardman, Mark; Noakes, Jill; Wegerif, Rupert – Studies in Science Education, 2018
Science is concerned with understanding the world. As such, engaging with the materiality of that world is integral to both empirical experimentation and theorising within science. However, it has been recognised for some time that the way scientists learn about the world and the way that young people learn about science cannot be simply equated.…
