Abstract:Through a detailed analysis of the use of artifacts within two informal learning environments, the author finds that the choices made by participants in response to the distribution and abundance of those artifacts determine to a large extent the sustainability of inquiry learning. Reflecting upon the importance of the use of metaphor in uncovering troubling events and attitudes in these environments, the author concludes with a discussion of the responsibilities of participants in the context of self-study and narrative inquiry.
