The aims of the learning sciences (LS) are to understand the nature of learning from a broad range of perspectives, and to shape the ways that learning environments and resources are designed and used. LS incorporates both systemic and elemental approaches to investigating questions about learning, as a complement to the primarily elemental approach emphasized in cognitive science research. Thus, its greatest potential is in the integration of systemic and elemental perspectives. Four major… 
Exploring a Century of Advancements in the Science of Learning
The past century has yielded a plethora of advancements in the science of learning, from expansions in the theoretical frames that undergird education research to cultural and contextual
A Transdisciplinary Approach to Student Learning and Development in University Settings
TLDR
It is argued that while progress is being made in undergraduate reform efforts, implementation has been uneven and alignment of the sort Jantsch (1972) and Piaget ( 1972) claimed was central to transdisciplinary approaches is central.
Start of a Science: An Epistemological Analysis of Learning at Scale
TLDR
The present analysis reveals that most papers explicitly show their theoretical commitments, target a narrow slice of available learning theory, draw on varied academic fields in different proportions, and showcase epistemological practices in line with what philosophers of computational science observe in communities using similar model-based methods.

Connecting learning analytics with learning research: the role of design-based research
TLDR
It is argued that learning analytics can make contributions to learning research, in addition to aiming for improvements in learning and teaching practices in a solely applied sense.
Revisiting learning in higher education—Framing notions redefined through an ecological perspective
In this contribution, we employ an ecological approach as a resourceful means of revisiting the notion of learning in the knowledge society in general and in higher education in particular. Learning
Theories of Change in Learning Experience (LX) Design
Designers’ theories about how people learn are the keys to impactful educational design. While much effort and attention is appropriately paid to usability in the development of educational tools and
Reflective, reflexive guided appropriation: Facilitating teacher adoption of game based learning in classrooms
The use of games to advance learning in the classroom often appeals to teachers perplexed by students who disengage from conventional instructional processes. However, the research literature
Understanding Fractions: Integrating Results from Mathematics Education, Cognitive Psychology, and Neuroscience
Many students face difficulties with fractions. Research in mathematics education and cognitive psychology aims at understanding where and why students struggle with fractions and how to make

Design-Based Research Methods for Studying Learning in Context: Introduction
The field of psychology has a long history of interaction with education, and educational psychology has had a profound impact on how issues of learning have been framed and studied in educational
Computer-supported collaborative learning: An historical perspective
TLDR
It is important to view CSCL as a vision of what may be possible with computers and of what kinds of research should be conducted, rather than as an established body of broadly accepted laboratory and classroom practices.
Design-Based Research : An Emerging Paradigm for Educational Inquiry by The Design-Based Research Collective
The authors argue that design-based research, which blends empirical educational research with the theory-driven design of learning environments, is an important methodology for understanding how,
Design experiments: Theoretical and methodological challenges in creating complex interventions in c
TLDR
The lion's share of my current research program is devoted to the study of learning in the blooming, buzzing confusion of inner-city classrooms, and central to the enterprise is that the classroom must function smoothly as a learning environment before the authors can study anything other than the myriad possible ways that things can go wrong.
Identity, Goals, and Learning: Mathematics in Cultural Practice
In this article, I explore and elaborate the relation between goals, identities, and learning and argue for their utility as a model by which to understand the nature of learning in general and to
THE SITUATIVITY OF KNOWING, LEARNING, AND RESEARCH
The situative perspective shifts the focus of analysis from individual behavior and cognition to larger systems that include behaving cognitive agents interacting with each other and with other
PLACING THE HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE ON THE CURRICULUM : A MODEL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF PEDAGOGY
This article focuses on two of the principal issues for science curriculum developers who wish to introduce the history and philosophy of science into the teaching of science — the jus- tification
Chapter 3: Rethinking Transfer: A Simple Proposal With Multiple Implications
A belief in transfer lies at the heart of our educational system. Most educators want learning activities to have positive effects that extend beyond the exact conditions of initial learning. They
Perspectives on Learning, Thinking, and Activity
We continue the discussion of cognitive and situative perspectives by identifying several important points on which we judge the perspectives to be in agreement: (a) Individual and social
