Jeffrey, Ricky – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
Previous research suggests that knowledge in different subjects varies in terms of objectivity and 'granularity' (division of knowledge content into smaller chunks). It has also been suggested that subject objectivity and granularity vary across different educational systems, due to resource differences. This study measures knowledge objectivity…

Lido, Catherine; Reid, Kate; Osborne, Michael – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
Despite UNESCO's Learning Cities agenda, which argues for the mobilisation of resources to promote education across all sectors and environments, there is little evaluative research on Learning City engagement which is both naturalistic and empirically rigorous.

Morrison, Andrew; Erstad, Ola; Liestøl, Gunnar; Pinfold, Nicholas; Snaddon, Bruce; Hemmersam, Peter; Grant-Broom, Andrea – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
In this article we explore the dynamic between the pedagogical and the urban, attending to 'agentive urban learning'. By this we mean processes by which young people build agency in the urban context, in using the resources of the city to develop their own agency, and of developing agency to act within the city. By agency, we refer to the capacity…

Such criticism has led to moves to place the citizen at the centre of these…
