Undersøkende undervisning, elevaktive undervisnings- og læringsformer, gode relasjoner preget av varme og støttende samspill mellom lærere og elever er svæ...

Det er et begrep som hentes frem når politikerne skal nå mål som inkludering, sosial utjevning eller økt læringsutbytte. Evalueringer viser at skoler opplever tilpasset opplæring som et uklart og problematisk begrep....

In this article, we frame productive learning in a sociocultural perspective to show how it ties into a cluster of concepts on activity and transformation and illuminates the relation between learning processes and learning products. Based on two case studies, we argue that understanding learning as action entails developing the students’ argumenta...
