October 1, 2012 | Public Programs, Professional Development, Conferences, and Networks
Researchers from the Center for Informal Learning and Schools (CILS), Learning in Informal and Formal Environments (LIFE) Center and two other centers recently published LOST Learning Opportunities: Learning about Out-of-School Time.  The book, published by Springer, addresses conceptual, methodological, and empirical issues related to studying learning in everyday and afterschool settings. Primarily written for researchers, LOST Learning Opportunities includes chapters on what math looks like in everyday family settings, how science is positioned in afterschool, how children's learning and expertise develop across settings and time, and what ""hands-on"" means in the science museum field.  The book can be purchased through Springer; PDFs of individual chapters are also available on the Springer website.
