We Are Not Newtonian Billiard Balls! The Need for a New Approach to Adult Learning.
Written by John Watkins | June 29, 2018.
Watkins explores how tacit Newtonian, mechanistic beliefs about organization and learning inhibit our capacity to create adult learning environments (and school district systems) that can sustain the deeper learning that teachers collectively need in order to create consistent and pervasive deeper learning environments for students. He then proposes newer heuristics that derive from constructivism, natural systems, and complexity theory.
