Rhizomatic Learning and Disrupting School Silos

As students, administrators, and teachers, we all care about results(and we should) and with that comes the need to feel in control. Silos such as classrooms, grade levels, departments, etc., make that emotional reassurance possible but sometimes at a cost. Although we feel a heavy sense of responsibility to produce certain outcomes due to how much is at stake, it’s also possible to share the weight of our labor more collaboratively by thinking more rhizomatically. Hub and spoke, inside and outside silos, curricular content and irrelevant info, inside and outside departments… these categorical binaries help us trace learning outcomes, but where are the opportunities to map new possibilities which resist such rigid organization? How can we as teachers, students, and administrators rhizomatically disrupt (or should we say deterritorialize) the silos we found ourselves in today? Come join a conversation on how to breakdown the silo mentality and learn how “rhizomatic” models might inspire such lines of flight.
