In the push for differentiation, fragmented pieces of information from family life, schooling and work shape the modern person. In a related way, contexts, contents and procedures for delivering ‘blended’ workplace learning materialize as fluid, trans-disciplinary knowledge.
In this volume, articles focusing on didactics, English as a foreign language, computer efficacy and process writing explore this fragmentation and fluidity. Throughout, project networking in a variety of didactic designs explores social-communicative human systems and educational activity systems. The articles portray the processes and results of networking in a world of ‘textual’ knowledge and supply actionable pieces of advice. These assessments and recommendations drawn from a network of Nordic educators are designed for all those within their education system, including students and teachers, and validate a long Scandinavian tradition of collaboration and inquiry.
