[Glosario] Ecología de aprendizaje

A learning ecology is defined as the set of contexts found in physical or virtual spaces that provide opportunities for learning [Barron, 2004]. Each context is comprised of a unique configuration of activities, material resources, relationships, and the interactions that emerge from them (p. 195).

An individual’s learning ecology comprises their process and set of contexts and interactions that provides them with opportunities and resources for learning, development and achievement. Each context comprises a unique configuration of purposes, activities, material resources, relationships and the interactions and mediated learning that emerge from them (…). Learning ecologies have temporal dimensions as well as spatial dimensions and they have the capability to connect different spaces and contexts existing simultaneously across a person’s life-course, as well as different spaces and contexts existing through time throughout their life-course.
