Sheridan, Kimberly M.; Zhang, Xiaorong; Konopasky, Abigail W. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2022
Background: In studio art, students are expected to be highly agentive--to engage in creative processes to form personalized representations of ideas, yet we lack knowledge on how teachers support their agency. Approaching agency as co-constructed practices across temporal dimensions, we examine how teachers shift between autonomy-supportive and…

Hollett, Ty; Peng, XinYun; Land, Susan – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2022
Background: This paper examines ensemble learning in the context of ballet. We use more-than-representational theory to account for the "invisible" dimensions of ensemble learning, such as sensations, energy, or intensity that bodies sense, circulate, and evoke in others. We illuminate the mobile architectures that emerge in ensemble…

Solomon, Folashadé; Champion, Dionne; Steele, Mariah; Wright, Tracey – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2022
Background: Physics is often presented as disembodied, separating learners from opportunities to utilize their bodies as sense-making resources. By ignoring issues of body, ethnicity and culture, these framings limit access to physics for many, including Black girls, who struggle to gain access to physics. Studying the situated, embodied cultural…

Background: Recent alternative concepts of school knowledge emphasize knowledge creation via networks of learning around real-world phenomena. We studied entrepreneurship education as an example of new epistemic activity which opens institutional boundaries for active engagement with society in learning. Methods: We used a case-study strategy and…

Williams-Pierce, Caro; Thevenow-Harrison, Jordan T. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Most research on mathematical play and learning is focused on early childhood. This study examines how mathematical play and learning manifest in older children in a mathematical videogame designed by the first author, "Rolly's Adventure." We examined how players experienced mathematical play as they played "Rolly's Adventure,"…

Bishop, Jessica Pierson – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: This study considers the moment-bymoment mathematics discourse of teachers and students and the relationship of these discourses to student learning. I focus on the discursive constructs of responsiveness to students' mathematical thinking and the intellectual work in teacher and student discourse. Responsiveness to students'…

Jaber, Lama Z. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: Efforts to promote reform-based instruction have overlooked the import of affect in teacher learning. Drawing on prior work, I argue that teachers' affective experiences in the discipline are integral to their learning how to teach the discipline. Moreover, I suggest that both affective and epistemological aspects of teachers'…

Greene, Jeffrey A.; Chinn, Clark A.; Deekens, Victor M. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: The modern world is rife with complex challenges that require citizens to weigh multiple, conflicting claims and competing methods for discerning truth from falsehood. Such evaluations depend highly upon prior knowledge. Therefore, the goal of epistemic education is the cultivation of apt epistemic performance: successfully achieving…

Nguyen, Kevin A.; Azevedo, Flávio S.; Papendieck, Adam – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: We investigate the nature of planning the canoeing of rapids and its reasoning processes, while at the same time advancing a syncretic approach to cognitive and situative theories of learning. Building upon the work of Lucy Suchman, we examine how canoers plan to run rapids and how plans serve as resources for action. Methods: In…

Rainio, Anna Pauliina; Hofmann, Riikka – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: Teachers' limiting conceptualizations of students influence students' learning opportunities. We analyze teachers' professional conversations to understand how dialogues can expand teachers' conceptualizations. Methods: We examine professional dialogues from nine whole-school intervention meetings. Drawing on discursive psychology and…
