Abram de Bruyn, ALF

Welcome to my Blog, Infinite Playground, named in honor of James P. Carse’s Finite and Infinite Games (1987), I see the world as a playground and my place in it as an active player.  I’m ‘playing the game’, but as an infinite player, one who knows they have the power to re-write the rules in favor of play and players.

My favorite game is being an Agile Learning Facilitator.  Following a model of natural learning, I play with a deep trust in people’s ability to progress towards their own goals at their own pace.

In Spring 2016 I began my MA in Philosophy and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University.  Through this program, I intend to explore and deepen my understanding of Self Directed Learning and how this relates to the more general fields of both Education and Philosophy.

To read more about who I am and what I love, see this post (October 2015).

Agile Learning Center, NYC

New York City’s first Agile Learning Center is an independent school for self-directed learners. Students at Agile Learning Centers individualize their learning within the context of a supportive community. We have adapted simple tools for self-organization and intentional culture creation to better support young people in engaging with their passions and curiosities while shaping the environment of the school.
