This review of literature was conducted to identify practical implications of complex adaptive systems in the classroom. The article uses complexity thinking to analyze conditions for emergence. Emergence is understood in this context as a “teachable moment”, and in order for students to capitalize on these many moments, the conditions for emergence must be set by the teacher and experienced by the students.
