Abstract

Data gathered during Janice's participatory research in a non-traditional primary school and with pre-service teachers over a 3 year period suggests that a curriculum which evolves from play and the arts may transform students' personal and social development. However, study findings also point to a gap between the 'talk' of transformative pedagogies, sustainability and lifelong learning and the practices of educators within the constraining influences of government-mandated curricula, testing and reporting. This gap challenges educators to create a third space (Bhabha, 1994) for learner agency and transformation.
