Food for Thought: What Education Could Learn from Agriculture
Westera, Wim
Educational Technology, v50 n6 p37-40 Nov-Dec 2010
Knowledge is like food and drink, a necessity of life, the motor of the economy, and a precondition for any social activities. While considering these facts, one cannot fail to notice that education and agriculture have a lot in common. This article reflects on the parallels between agriculture and education. While agriculture started modernizing its methods and tools two centuries ago, education is just in its early phase of modernization. The article analyses agriculture and distils patterns that may be of significance for education.
