"Learning in Places" is a concerted effort undertaken by an outstanding group of international researchers to create a resource book that can introduce academic, professional and lay readers to the field of informal learning/education and its potential to transform present educational thinking. The book presents a wealth of ideas from a wide variety of disciplinary fields and methodological approaches covering multiple learning landscapes - in museums, workplaces, classrooms, places of recreation - in a variety of political, social and cultural contexts around the world. "Learning in Places" presents the most recent theoretical advances in the field; analyzing the social, cultural, political, historical and economical contexts within which informal learning develops and must be critiqued. It also looks into the epistemology that nourishes its development and into the practices that characterize its implementation; and finally reflects on the variety of educational contexts in which it is practiced.

This is Book 6 of 7 in the Ethnographer's Toolkit, Second Edition. Ethics in Ethnography explores the burgeoning field of research ethics and addresses how both formal and informal ethical considerations underpin good ethnographic research. Coming from the position that no particular research design is more or less prone to generate ethical issues, LeCompte and Schensul open this volume with a short history of formal oversight for human research and address the formal ethical responsibilities incumbent upon researchers. Next, they consider how informal or “everyday” ethics affect researchers’ daily interactions in the field. In recognition of the shift toward team-based field research, the authors pay special attention to ethics related to collaborative research. The book concludes with an examination of new challenges and issues ranging from new field realities to the ethics of interpreting research results. As with all books in the series, this title features case studies, checklists, key points to remember, and additional resources to consult; the result is a uniquely detailed and eminently useful introduction to the ethical conduct of ethnography.

There is a lot to learn about weaving! In this beautiful book by Pattie Graver, former Managing Editor of Handwoven magazine, you'll be explore a variety of weave structures and concepts in depth and detail including twill, colour-and-weave, overshot, summer and winter, lace, and doubleweave.Next Steps in Weaving is an organized compendium of information and troubleshooting advice on several common weave structures, based on the author's own frustrations while learning to weave. Given what seemed to be solid instruction, Pattie nevertheless often ran into problems: the fabric looked significantly different, had the wrong texture or drape, biased or took in too much, or rendered a beautiful pattern nearly invisible. Based on twenty years of hands-on experience, classes, self-teaching, information from publications, and skills learned from other weavers, Next Steps in Weaving both saves the reader endless time spent researching what went wrong and how to fix, and also helps new weavers discover their own weaving identity or focus.There is a lot to learn in weaving and while new weavers grasp the basics, they also often find it difficult to decide the next step in order to grow their new skills. By introducing new weavers to various structures and concepts via a hands-on experience, Next Steps in Weaving gives them what they need to design and execute future projects well, while helping them avoid or fix common mistakes. And it will hopefully whet their appetite to dive deeper into one or more of the topics covered. The topics include several popular weaves: twill, colour-and-weave, overshot, summer and winter, lace, and doubleweave.For each structure, Pattie presents a thorough explanation of the weaving process, a project or a sampler, and includes variations where appropriate. For example, one might weave a twill scarf with a solid colour warp and weft. To take this to the next step, she shows how to use a shaded or striped warp, how to introduce multiple weft colours, how to vary the treadling, or how to use a different yarn (e.g. wool versus cotton). Throughout, she addresses common problems that new (and experienced) weavers encounter in each technique, or offers tips on easier weaving or creating better fabric. The overall concept is not just how to weave, but how to weave well, focusing on the details and tricks that emphasize craftsmanship and superior execution.Next Steps in Weaving is different from other recent books because it deals with multiple topics and is written for experienced beginners. Although it includes projects and drafts, the book focuses on understanding structures and all the factors that affect them (the loom, the weaver, the yarns, etc.). Newer weavers and those making a transition from the rigid heddle loom will find it to be a valuable resource. Most of the information will be appropriate for 4-shaft weavers. However, 8-shafts will be addressed and everything in the book will be possible on those looms.|There is a lot to learn about weaving! As a new weaver, you might wonder what the next steps are to grow your skills. Next Steps in Weaving has the answers you're looking for. In this beautiful book by Pattie Graver, former Managing Editor of Handwoven magazine, you'll be explore a variety of weave structures and concepts in depth and detail including twill, colour-and-weave, overshot, summer and winter, lace, and doubleweave. This is not just a book of weaving patterns. Each topic is explained and supplemented with instructions for weaving a sampler and a project in order to solidify the concepts and enable you to design your own projects. In addition, the book offers troubleshooting tips in order to expand your weaving expertise. Whether you're new to weaving, have the basics down, or are looking to improve your foundation skills, this book will be an asset to your weaving library. So what are you waiting for?

Playing On The Mother Ground

Theorists of child development, for the most part, have taken white, middle class, Euro-American children as the norm. These "typical" children, however, are exposed to two major enculturating influences that are by no means common across cultures: formal schooling and parents who consciously attempt to serve as teachers at home. Providing an important contribution toward a more universal understanding of child development, this book concentrates on children of the Kpelle-speaking people of West Africa, who grow up neither spending thousands of hours in quiet study nor receiving a heavy dose of parent tutelage. Acknowledging the centrality of play in children's lives, the Kpelle expect their children to play "on the mother ground," or open spaces adjacent to the areas where adults are likely to be working. Here, children observe the work that adults do as they engage in voluntary activities or "routines" that serve a clear enculturating function. With photographs and vivid first-hand description, the author demonstrates the impact of games, folklore, and other routines on early development among the Kpelle and in other non-Western cultures. He persuasively argues that such enduring routines for raising children as those observed in the Kpelle village are universal and not limited to rural societies, though they take a variety of forms depending on the society. Ethnographically rich and theoretically sophisticated, the book provides a sound empirical foundation for a practice-based theory of child development.

In this volume, Robert J. Sternberg and David D. Preiss bring together different perspectives on understanding the impact of various technologies on human abilities, competencies, and expertise. The inclusive range of historical, comparative, sociocultural, cognitive, educational, industrial/organizational, and human factors approaches will stimulate international multi-disciplinary discussion. Major questions that are addressed include: *What is the impact of different technologies on human abilities? *How does technology enhance or limit human intellectual functioning? *What is the cognitive impact of complex technologies? *What is the cognitive impact of the transfer of technologies? *How can we design technologies that foster intellectual growth? *How does technology mediate the impact of cultural variables on human intellectual functioning? Part I addresses the history of cognitive technologies and how they have evolved with culture, but at the same time helped culture evolve. Part II focuses on how educational technologies affect the ways in which students and others think. The topic of Part III is technology in the world of work. Part IV deals with the interface between intelligence and technology. The diversity and richness of technology relates to different forms of abilities, competencies, and expertise. In consequence, many psychologists, educators, and others are interested in exploring the ways in which technology and human abilities interact, but lack a handy source of information to satisfy their interest. This book provides researchers and students in these areas with relevant perspectives and information.
