How and where do young university students learn? Conceptions, strategies, technologies, and contexts in their learning trajectories.

Today, many of the young people studying at university are considered “post-20th century” (McCrindle and Wolfinger, 2011). Not only because they were born after the Internet and the WWW, in an increasingly digital world, but also because they have grown up in a VICA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) social, political, economic and technological context. Young university students are present in social protest movements and at the same time are more fearful and conservative (Haidt and Lukianoff, 2019). These young people, who are considered the first Homo Globalis or citizens of the world (Broennimann, 2017), have grown up connected to virtual environments and with access to more information than those of any other generation (Seemiller and Grace, 2017).

Migrant students in Educational Systems from a child and youth-centred research

MiCreate employs a methodological research perspective called ‘child-centred approach’ (Due, Riggs & Augoustinos, 2014). This viewpoint introduces the need for a series of deconstructions of the usual way of conducting educational and social research to intensively consider the participation and interests of children and youth. The interest in deepening the recognition of children and young people and their agency is related to a significant shift towards a less adult-centred and more child-centred relationship. A review of the meanings, the methodological and ethical implications of this approach has led us to observe that the foundations of this perspective in research appeal to the participation of children, their agency and authorship in the creation of knowledge and their capacity to make decisions, act and express themselves within the framework of a research process (Stuardo-Concha, Carrasco & Hernández-Hernández, in press).

Investigación transformativa e inclusiva en el ámbito social y educativo

This book presents a diversity of epistemological and methodological proposals that are acting in complicated socio-educational settings, supporting and developing transformation projects.
