Hey Bucky, Can You Spare a Paradigm? Reflections on Synergetic Education.
Wagschal, Peter H.
NASSP Bulletin, v78 n560 p51-61 Mar 1994
Michael Polanyi's 1958 book "Personal Knowledge" explains how models and world views form the core of human life. The paradigmatic context in which today's schools function derives from an outmoded 19th-century agrarian economy. The new millennium context turns around the explosion of information technologies and the globalization of planet Earth. Buckminster Fuller's synergy model can help transform public education. (MLH)
