Unschooling Media: Participatory Practices among Progressive Homeschoolers

Unschooling Media: Participatory Practices among Progressive Homeschoolers

By Vanessa Bertozzi
Master’s of Science Thesis in Comparative Media Studies Massachusetts Institute of Technology May 12, 2006

This copy of the report  is hosted on a page by a science educator in India.  I got to meet him last fall in his "lab."  

The interviewer is more artist than researcher, and we had fun interacting with her.

The study is not new, but I didn't know of any online site for it before. Something there might be of interest to someone. :-) The "informants" credits are:

I notice that the author discovered that Patri and I were close, but apparently didn't realize that Patri was involved in the SCA long before he became involved in CivWar reenactment.
