Learning in a Floating world of disciplines

By Michael Bunce

"The vibrant potentiality in learning described in MetaPraxis, and concepts of agency central to the work of ALab, are equivalent calls to action, to seek possibility with purpose and responsibility. "

Author – Michael Bunce

About the PAPER.

The MetaPraxis Project has involved 12 schools in Adelaide, South Australia, working to facilitate the conceptualisation, design and leadership of interdisciplinary learning projects, in which a central focus has been the development of meta-intelligence. Here, the author presents a story of critical partnership: layers of dynamic, agentive and collaborative learning, between MetaPraxis teams and their schools and communities; between teachers, between teachers and students, and between students. Including comment from participants, he charts a journey of transformation, as schools unpacked the philosophy, practice and products of MetaPraxis. The story is being continued by schools through websites, podcasts, a symposium and further evolution of their metapraxis.
