Imagination and the Cognitive Tools of Place-Making
Fettes, Mark; Judson, Gillian
Journal of Environmental Education, v42 n2 p123-135 2011
In environmental and ecological education, a rich literature builds on the premise that place, the local natural context in which one lives, can be an emotionally engaging context for learning and the source of life-long concern for nature. A theory of imaginative education can help uncover new tools and strategies for place-based educators. Conversely, a focus on the imaginative dimensions of place-making sheds new light on the nature of imaginative development, with important implications for educational theory and practice.
