Adult Learning and Technology in Working-class Life

by

Adult Learning and Technology in Working-class Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book explores the hidden world of everyday learning in the lives of manufacturing workers from a social perspective. It challenges the myth that everyday learning, despite its apparent openness and freedom, can be understood as class-neutral. Based on life-history interviews, selected ethnographic observations in homes and factories, and large-scale survey materials as well as the microanalysis of human-computer interaction, the analysis follows learning across the spheres of "working-class life" and draws on the author's personal experiences as a factory worker and academic.

Synopsis:

This explores everyday learning among working-class Canadians, exploding the myth that such learning is class-neutral.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 237-247) and index.
