Tivaringe, Tafadzwa; Kirshner, Ben – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: Research about learning in youth activism has generated important findings about how young people learn to critique inequality and exercise collective agency. This emerging line of research, however, has been limited by its geographic focus in North America, a tendency to assume single bounded groups as sites of learning, and limited…

Meléndez, José W. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: The author discusses an in-depth study of the participatory budgeting process in Chicago's 49th Ward (PB49), a deliberative democratic process in which all residents and ideas were positioned as equal, relying on rational arguments to make decisions about municipal funding allocations. The study documented collective decision-making…

Pham, Josephine H.; Philip, Thomas M. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: Social movement scholarship tends to focus on macro-level processes of movement emergence, overlooking the day-to-day groundwork of marginalized social movement actors who contribute to and sustain large-scale action. Contributing to this gap in literature, we develop the construct of "pedagogies of organizing" to illuminate…

Takeuchi, Miwa Aoki; Aquino Ishihara, Virgie – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: We situate the mobilization of mathematical literacy as a tool to see and redress social and historical dilemmas (Engeström, 2014; Gutiérrez, 2016) rooted in the geo-economic politics of race, gender, and class. Methods: Using collaborative ethnography, we describe how mathematical literacy was mobilized by an activist collective that…

Uttamchandani, Suraj – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: Using a conceptualization of learning as the act of organizing possible futures, I examine prefigurative relationship-building processes. Youth organizing research has shown that relational and political development are outcomes of participation, but offers limited examples of how these developments co-occur in discourse. Methods: I…

Philip, Thomas M.; Sengupta, Pratim – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: We outline a case for how the Learning Sciences is at a powerful inflection point where the "real world" needs to be seen as comprised of the political entities and processes in which learning happens. We seek to sharpen the principle that learning is political by elucidating historical and contemporary processes of European…

Goulding, James – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: This paper outlines the findings of a sociocultural study that examined how digital contexts shape historical thinking. It was assumed that the tools used to engage with historical information mediate thinking, and that when evaluating historical information online, participants would draw upon heuristics associated with Historical…

Wisittanawat, Panchompoo; Gresalfi, Melissa S. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: Educational video games are increasingly used in classrooms because they can offer meaningful contexts for problem solving. However, educational video games bring together two historically disparate activities: school mathematics and video games. How these two activities complement, compromise, or contradict each other influences how…

Gravel, Brian E.; Svihla, Vanessa – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: Design problems have long attracted researchers' attention for their potential to provide authentic learning opportunities. While we have methods for supporting students to learn through relatively simple engineering and design tasks, supporting students to address complex problems that they find and frame remains poorly understood.…

Rau, Martina A.; Zahn, Miranda; Misback, Edward; Herder, Tiffany; Burstyn, Judith – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2021
Background: A key aspect of STEM learning is the use of visual representations for problem solving. To successfully use visuals, students need to make sense of how they show concepts and to fluently perceive domain-relevant information in them. Adding support for sense making and perceptual fluency to problem-solving activities enhances students'…

Wilkerson, Michelle Hoda; Polman, Joseph L. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
The emerging field of Data Science has had a large impact on science and society. This has led to over a decade of calls to establish a corresponding field of Data Science Education. There is still a need, however, to more deeply conceptualize what a field of Data Science Education might entail in terms of scope, responsibility, and execution.…

Wise, Alyssa Friend – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This article discusses how each of the papers in this special issue explored some combination of subject, audience, and data scientist perspectives with an eye toward helping students situate their relationship to data. Specifically, within the data scientist perspective, the papers examined a variety of ways in which students can relate to data…

Roberts, Jessica; Lyons, Leilah – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Engaging learners with complex unfamiliar datasets is a known challenge in Data Science education. One promising phenomenon investigated in related work is perspective-taking. A first-person "actor" perspective can help facilitate group and individual sensemaking by mediating observations and actions taken by learners. Here we…

Stornaiuolo, Amy – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This article centers sociocultural and sociopolitical considerations of how young people understand, represent, and use data by presenting findings from a social design research study about how students in a public urban high school authored "data stories" using personal data they curated, collected, and visualized. The study contributes…

Lee, Victor R.; Dubovi, Ilana – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This article reports on an exploratory study of quantitative data use situated in families' management routines while taking care of a child with Type 1 diabetes (T1D). T1D treatment requires frequent measurement and recording of numerical data about blood sugar concentration, nutritional intake, and insulin dosage at the child's home, at school,…
