Children's Ways of Knowing: Learning through Experience

How do young people navigate their way through school, home and the Internet? What value systems are they adopting? What strategies are young people using to learn problem solving, trial and error, risk taking, commonsense learning, intuition, or activity-based learning? In order to motivate children to learn in classrooms, educational practices need to evolve from the content and range of young people's personal experiences. Children's Ways of Knowing: Learning through Experience seeks to explore the experiences of children as they make sense of their environment.
