Some preliminary thoughts on the nature of what I am calling Augmented Contexts for Development; an extension of Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development that takes into account the characteristics of 21st Century mass media structures and practices. Presentation at Education in the Wild, Alpine Rendez-Vous, within the framework of the STELLAR Network of Excellence. December 3-4, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, Germany.
I will talk with colleagues in Garmisch about extending my notion of Augmented Contexts for Development to work based learning and will also use it in literact session of another workshop that i am involved in (Technology-enhanced learning in the context of technological, societal and cultural transformations; see link below). I would welcome any comments from colleagues about how it relates to all areas of learning.
