Hi Elina,

When you have a minute you may also want to pick up Learning in
places: The informal education reader, edited by Bekerman, Burbules,
and Silberman-Keller, from Peter Lang. A strong collection of
chapters overall, and there is a great piece by Ash and Wells on
museum learning. Other chapters by Hull and Greeno and Nocon and
Cole, and others, really good as well. It's just been published, 2006.

Best - Jennifer
