Abstract

In family activity children learn how to be participants in family practices, how to be learners and teachers within family relationships, and to approach learning and knowing in ways valued by their families and communities. Increased attention to children's learning across contexts highlights that meaningful learning can be ubiquitous across time, space, and situations. However, we need more understanding of how learning can be constructively linked across facets of children's lives, especially as they move through the world with their families. This poster symposium brings together people working on research and design of family learning experiences, in a variety of contexts. We aim to further understand 1) processes of learning across practices, time, persons and social/physical contexts, 2) the nature of learning processes in families, considering varied goals, values, and possible learning situations, and 3) what is being learned from new forays into research and design for family learning environments.
