Learning physical world = field studies, getting to know phenomena in their real environments. Learning the meanings attached to the physical objects and environment =methods that support to regognition of differences in people’s ”world views”, memory mapping, applications of mental map... Learning the power relations involved in the production of meaning =method for students to get involved in a participative planning Objects: basis for the learning process: there will be tdescriptive texts of those urban places in the learning environment Themes: perspectives which are optional and they could be added to the objects, so that for example sub urban area might be studied from the multicultural point of view. (good idea?i have to test it wheter it works…) Toolkit: includes descriptions of methods for orientation, for the real research in the field and presentation of results Students can choose with which method they want to study for example street space.
Jokiasessa vaiheesa tulee tehtävää vähän enemmän, mutta materiaaleihin tutstuminen erilaisten menetelmien avulla kaikissa.
