Putting the context into learning

Edwards R & Miller K (2007) Putting the context into learning, Pedagogy, Culture and Society, 15 (3), pp. 263-274.

The article explores the conceptualisation of learning and context from a number of perspectives and some of the theoretical and methodological issues raised when context is no longer considered a container, but as a relational effect. Central to the article are the questions of what makes something specifically a learning context and what different ways of conceiving the relationship between learning and context might be and with what implications.
