Contested Places is a Siftr-based activity that engages students in exploring their school, neighborhood, or city as a contested place. You can view and comment on other people's examples or upload your own. 
In this activity your task is to locate places and spaces that are contested. You might ask: How do different people view and use this place? What uses cause conflict? How are these conflicts enacted and resolved? Who has power in this place? Who and what is excluded from this place? You may want to look at how people behave or act in the place, but don't forget to also pay attention to what you don't see.

Siftr is a social media app that engages users with elements of field research through the documenting and sharing of images. Anyone can create a Siftr by choosing up to five themes around which to focus the media that will be collected and categorized. Users upload a photograph, provide a brief description of the image and its relevance, and tag it with one of five selected themes. Images are then pinned to a map, connecting moments to places. Siftr allows for other social components such as commenting, liking, searching, and linking photos to Twitter and Pinterest. In addition to being iOS and Android compatible, Siftr was built as a web app, meaning users can upload photos “in the field” or take a photograph and upload it later from a desktop. While Siftr seems similar to many social media platforms, it was designed to playfully engage specific communities, such as a class, around defined topics. It can be used for small class and group projects, or for long term and large field initiatives.

What is situated learning and why do we care so much about it? Situated learning refers to knowledge that is developed and applied in the same social setting in which it is typically used — such as when you learn to use a hammer by actually building something, and the values and practices associated with becoming a carpenter by working on a construction crew.
