Thinking Through

Page

The Learning Planet is my main blog for thinking through questions about culture, learning and the environment. I’ve also started using Medium for more political stories.

I write articles for journals or books on museums, digital culture and creative education. For example, I’ve written for Museums Journal, Code: Words, Museumsetc, engage review, and more.

At the heart of everything I write is calling for a shift towards more ecological ways of knowing. How we learn is at the heart of this. I think that learning is accelerated when people collaborate to solve real problems in real contexts, seeking the means to thrive, fully powered by imaginative play and tapping into cultural knowledge. It almost goes without saying that I think the real problems, on micro or macro scale, concrete or abstract in nature, are all rooted in the human relationship with the biosphere, the flaw in which have led to our breaching of planetary boundaries. I’m especially interested in the role of cultural organisations and creative practitioners in articulating and solving these problems.

I also speak at many conferences and events, offer training workshops and toolkits about these topics, so please contact me on bridget.mckenzie@flowassociates.com if you are interested.

  1. Dear Bridget, Just to say that I love your blog and your learning model.

    As commons educators at the school of commoning, we use and practice but are always open to learn and get better at :
    p2p learning, learning by doing, play, plurality and learning to trust our intuition.

    I also use this approach as a workshop leader for Living medicine http://www.livingmedicine.org

    At the moment we are learning to grow and build commons around issues we are passionate about. You can check us out here: http://commonsrising.ning.com/

    hope to stay in touch

    Anna
