Rhizomes as metaphor for relationships in learning processes

Rhizomes as metaphor for relationships in learning processes | Perspectives on Leadership | Scoop.it

Metaphors from agriculture are widely used to describe educational processes. For example the "fertile soil" for a stimulating setting, "nurturing" for the teachers' efforts or "growing" for the development of the learner. In particular in the Learning Agency Network, we benefit from agricultural terminology e.g. in the LANETO Participatory Permaculture Model and are thus happy to reflect on the rhizomes as a metaphor for learning connections.

Jacqui Verlinden's insight:

Describes and explains personalities in leadership and what contributes to their failure. Precise from my experience! Do one of these desribe you . . . . at any time . . . ever?

The Secret To Fixing Bad Schools

The Secret To Fixing Bad Schools | Perspectives on Leadership | Scoop.it
The striking achievement of Union City, N.J. — bringing poor, mostly immigrant kids into the educational mainstream — argues for reinventing the public schools we have.
Jacqui Verlinden's insight:

It's about the needs for each child, how they are different.

It's about 'doing'.

It's about getting in early and building those life skills. Why wait? Let's start to educate. Pre-kindergarten/early child care can influence the foundation of our children's capacity to learn.
