This paper reports an ethnographic investigation of teenagers’ patterns of movement in public space, undertaken by university students as part of their learning. The project is useful for the students in their future professional role as teachers. We show the importance of teachers knowing about young peoples’ activities during their free time, because teachers have opportunities to come closer to pupils’ interests and to understand their learning arenas outside the school. We found interesting aspects of genus and ethnicity which can help develop awareness for educators in school. We also develop understanding of these questions and show its use in university teaching.
