Transformative Education aims decisively to transform the world of education and to nurture the next generation to become problem-solvers and creative thinkers, empowered with the necessary skills to make this world a better place. It provides practical methods for sustainable, integrative, and active learning, and investigates ‘the why’ behind these proven and effective methods.
Discussing the different levels of subject integration in school, from intradisciplinary to transdisciplinary teaching, the authors analyse their potential holistic impact and knowledge retention effectiveness. With a substantial section on the efficacious teaching of the increasingly indispensable field of critical thinking, this book is built up first around a discourse of the intended methodology, secondly, it also includes a very practical mid-section with direct and meticulously described project ideas for teachers to try out, and finally a discussion and an analysis on what effects the proposed techniques might have and how teachers and students could be facilitated in their learning processes by school leaders and administrators.
This pioneering endeavour is an important text for education professionals globally, as well as for the policy makers that regulate their work. It may also be of interest to parents and to a wider society.
Additional digital resource content is available online and includes practical examples, explanations and video to help support sustainable, integrative and active learning.
