The XYZs of Deleuze’s Ideas in Education
When I think of Deleuzian philosophy in education, I think of a seemingly whacky kickball game my gym teacher created in middle school. You could tag the bases in any order, and there was no umpire to call the shots. It was player-directed—and if you wanted to stay on base, you could, as long as no other player shared it with you. While there were boundaries, they were naturally set based on where you played. It was acceptable, even encouraged, to think outside the box. Players had to strategize in real-time—just as curricula should “flow” in real-time to create itself. With that said, there is no “right” way to read this children’s e-book; there is no constructed order that needs to be followed. If you want to find “Y” because it is your favourite letter, start there, and if you want to skip around to “K” because your first name starts with K, that works, too. And if you want to end on “A” because it always gets to go first, venture onward and save it for last. Hopefully, no matter how you choose to explore these pages, you enjoy reading the XYZs of Deleuze’s ideas as they pertain to education.
