Abstract

There has been much discussion about informal learning and the use of participatory media in the formal classroom. The adventure learning framework offers a method to incorporate informal learning and participatory media in the classroom in a pedagogically sound way. Adventure learning (AL) blends the multiple affordances of online learning with the authentic activities of everyday life and culture, bringing together learners, experts, and teachers in a unique community. The AL framework has been used in the design of My Great State, an online learning environment that seeks to bridge informal and formal learning and build community in the K-6 classroom.
