"Context matters to learning; it is complex and local to a learner. It defines a person's subjective and objective experience of the world in a spatially and historically contingent manner. Context is dynamic and associated with connections between people, things, locations and events in a narrative that is driven by people's intentionality and motivations. Technology can help make these connections in an operational sense. People can help make these connections have meaning for a learner.
...meaning is distributed amongst these resources*. However, it is the manner in which the learner at the centre of their context internalises their interactions that is the core activity of importance." (p.18 Luckin, 2010)
*resources (e.g. people, things, locations and events)
As learning designers how can we:
- influence/design learners' resource ecologies to maximise the opportunities for learning and
- guide learners and others to act so as to exploit these opportunities and construct successful learning trajectories (narratives likely to result in internalisation of the desired knowledge and/or skills).
