Modern childhood: Children and youth educational trajectories

This area of research is aimed specifically at the interaction between schools and other venues and activities where children and young people participate. We analyze how they learn and create knowledge within and across different contexts such as school, home and between physical and virtual peer communities.

The area includes analysis of children and young people's educational progress in light of, among other things, ethnicity, changes in family patterns and the values, norms and understandings of reality that peer networking represents.

Research in this area contributes important knowledge about how young people with different backgrounds connect the knowledge acquired at various participating venues, and how this affects their choices and future trajectories.
