Exploring science learning through posthumanist lenses: Towards research on inclusion and equity in outside the classroom activities
Tutkimustuotos: Artikkeli kirjassa/konferenssijulkaisussa ›
In this research, we have conducted contextual inquiry, which consisted in field observations and interviews conducted with more than 100 people in a diversity of non-formal and informal science learning contexts. The analysis of the data resulted in the identification of three main challenges that young people faced for engaging in non-formal and informal science learning:(1) barriers to access scientific culture, (2) connecting science to learners’ self-concepts, (3) sustaining interest on scientific thinking and topics. Based on the contextual inquiry, we suggest that the adoption of a relational materialist approach to science education could have a positive impact on inclusion and equity. In out of school science learning the relational materialism could enable learners explore the multiple interconnections of diverse areas of knowledge and inform the design of alternative third space learning environments, as well as artefact and materials that can be taken in use in them. Finally, we discuss the opportunities for developing particular ways of thinking and approaching learning that arise from the interplay between materials and digital (material).
