What Complexity Science Tells Us about Teaching and Learning

  • The diversity of knowledge and experience is an important source of intelligence in learning systems.
  • Rich learning engagements (and the making of seemingly abstract connections) occur when knowledge is seen as shared and distributed.
  • Local interactions within small groups of students (and the power of self-organization) create greater shared classroom coherence and understanding.
  • Complexity science principles allow teachers to think about and imagine ways in which their classrooms can become healthier and more democratic learning organizations.
