Abstract

As a society, we turn to sports for entertainment, exercise and to develop general purpose skills like teamwork, leadership and communication. However, we seldom lean on athletics as a space for learning. On the contrary, sports and learning are often presented as being in conflict with one another. In this symposium we discuss ways for re-expanding perceptions of athletics as a legitimate learning context. Moreover, we surface the expansive nature of sports as a context that can touch on the cognitive, social, cultural and political elements of one’s identities and lived experiences. In summary, we present and discuss examples from on-going learning sciences research that highlights the innovative ways that researchers and learners are collaborating to realize new opportunities at the intersection of sports and technology.
