Contemporary Environmental and Mathematics Education Modelling Using New Geometric Approaches

Geometries of Liberation

Editors: Gerofsky, Susan (Ed.)

Free Preview
  • Examines some of the ways geometries continue to shape the sensibilities, practices and structures of much of educational discourse, in spite of the well-developed critiques of their associated logics
  • Interrogates geometries we use to frame our thinking and offers fresh approaches of the state of environmental education and curriculum currently on offer
  • Explores the use of fractal patterns to spark group creative collaboration for sustainability education design and liberate learners and learning systems using a Transdisciplinary Regenerativity Index developed by synthesizing over thirty theorists’ work on regenerative design across fields and used as an assessment tool for group work

About this book

This book takes a fresh approach to using educational tools to solve profound problems in societies. The authors bring perspectives from curriculum studies, mathematics education, environmental education, and Indigenous epistemologies to a new consideration of “geometries to think with”. These tools reveal the wealth of resources and interrelationships in our world that have the potential to reconfigure and revitalize education. The transdisciplinary nature of the chapters and authors emphasizes the need for thinking beyond boundaries, while respecting the wisdom inherent in intellectual disciplines and traditions.
