The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language WHAT IF…

Learning and learners cannot be usefully separated?

Learning is a matter of innovation and creation as much or more than reproduction?

Prescriptions and proscriptions about teaching are doomed to fail?

We understand that teaching does not cause learning? www.englishintheoffice.com.br www.superteacher.com.br A complex system is

a highly structured system, which shows structure with variations

one whose evolution is very sensitive to initial conditions or to small perturbations, one in which the number of independent interacting components is large, or one in which there are multiple pathways by which the system can evolve

one that by design or function or both is difficult to understand and verify

one in which there are multiple interactions between many different components

Complex systems are systems in process that constantly evolve and unfold over time
