Movement of Mind: "The Matrix," Metaphors, and Re-Imagining Education.
Cook-Sather, Alison
Teachers College Record, v105 n6 p946-77 Aug 2003
Uses the movie, "The Matrix," to evoke both metaphors for human existence and models for learning and teaching by examining two metaphors that have dominated notions of and approaches to education in the United States and arguing for seeking, crafting, and embracing metaphors that cast students as the principal creators of their education and themselves. A sampling of metaphors for educational institutions, processes, and participants is appended. (Contains references.) (SM)
