This book is about how learners conceptualise learning, how they self-assess their own learning and why context matters. It shows how, just as a chameleon changes colour, learners change and adapt their approach to learning depending on the situation. It draws on examples of learning by Years 7-8 students from the classroom and out of school, looking at how their views and values are shaped and how they satisfy their own learning needs.
