The research in educational psychology has often challenged the concept of educational context. According to the different theoretical frameworks, the construct of context, its borders and the aspects to be taken into account, have been defined in different ways. The objective of this book is to provide a “context” of discussion in order to rethink the relationship between actors, practices and borders within the educational settings in the various currently thriving perspectives of Cultural Psychology. The main idea is to focus on how teachers, parents, students, educators, professionals, with their own identity and social representations, build their educational practices, share cultural spaces where knowledge is generated, and define the borders of the educational contexts. This book stems from the contemporary Cultural Psychology and represents an attempt to reflect upon the educational contexts as characterized by the inherent unity of both situatedness and generalizability in their relationship with other life spaces or micro-cultures.

Abstract

The research in educational psychology has often challenged the concept of educational context. According to the different theoretical frameworks, the construct of context, its borders and the aspects to be taken into account, have been defined in different ways. The objective of this book is to provide a “context” of discussion in order to rethink the relationship between actors, practices and borders within the educational settings in the various currently thriving perspectives of Cultural Psychology. The main idea is to focus on how teachers, parents, students, educators, professionals, with their own identity and social representations, build their educational practices, share cultural spaces where knowledge is generated, and define the borders of the educational contexts. This book stems from the contemporary Cultural Psychology and represents an attempt to reflect upon the educational contexts as characterized by the inherent unity of both situatedness and generalizability in their relationship with other life spaces or micro-cultures.
