In Ecological Thinking, Shoshana Keiny relates the arguments of this book to the new ecological paradigm, based on open instead of closed systems, which see humans not as outsiders but as part of the system. Keiny uses the term ecological thinking as a holistic framework for thinking about ways in which teachers need to be engaged in participatory interactive learning processes, which seek to generate new understanding and knowledge that changes their professional context. Ecological Thinking is based on several projects in which teacher educators, researchers, parents and/or other members of the community collaborated in order to jointly transform education. Written as a personal narrative, Keiny illustrates an Action Research process that emphasizes the interplay between praxis and theory.
