Learning In and Across Contexts: Reimagining Education

by Jennifer A. Vadeboncoeur, Hitaf Kady-Rachid & Bruce Moghtader
The chapter introduces the volume on the basis of four principles: seeing education holistically as inclusive of diverse learning contexts; recognizing that learning opportunities emerge both in and across contexts; advancing research on learning in ways that enable the study of learning over time and across contexts; and attending to possible futures in the present.

Epilogue: A New Paradigm for the Science and Practice of Engaging Young People

by Reed W. Larson, David J. Shernoff & Janine Bempechat
A hope of this Yearbook is to illuminate not only what promotes engagement but also how it can be fostered. In this epilogue, first we provide a short history of research on motivation. We then review the contributions of this Yearbook in providing a fuller, multidimensional, contextualized picture of human motivation, one that we believe is relevant and helpful to educational policy and practice. Last, we discuss where this research may head in order to engender conditions in which engagement in schooling becomes more universal.
