    Spinning in the NAPLAN Ether: 'Postscript on the Control Societies' and the Seduction of Education in Australia.Ian Cook & Greg Thompson - 2012 - Deleuze and Guatarri Studies 6 (4):564-584.
    This paper applies concepts Deleuze developed in his ‘Postscript on the Societies of Control’, especially those relating to modulatory power, dividuation and control, to aspects of Australian schooling to explore how this transition is manifesting itself. Two modulatory machines of assessment, NAPLAN and My Schools, are examined as a means to better understand how the disciplinary institution is changing as a result of modulation. This transition from discipline to modulation is visible in the declining importance of the disciplinary teacher–student relationship (...)

  2. That’s Not For Our Kids: The Strange Death of Philosophy and Ethics in a Low Socioeconomic Secondary School.Greg Thompson & Tomaž Lašič - 2014 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 46 (11):1-13.
    This article reflects on the successes and failures of a new Philosophy and Ethics course in a low socioeconomic context in Perth, Western Australia, with the eventual demise of the subject in the school at the end of 2010. We frame this reflection within Deleuzian notions of geophilosophy to advocate for a Philosophy and Ethics that is informed by nomadic thought, as this offers a critical freedom for students to transform themselves and their society and suggests practical ways both of (...)

  4. Mapping Teacher-Faces.Greg Thompson & Ian Cook - 2013 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 32 (4):379-395.
    This paper uses Deleuze and Guattari’s concept of faciality to analyse the teacher’s face. According to Deleuze and Guattari, the teacher-face is a special type of face because it is an ’overcoded’ face produced in specific landscapes. This paper suggests four limit-faces for teacher faciality that actualise different mixes of signifiance and subjectification in a classroom in which individualisation and massifications are affected. Understanding these limit-faces suggests new ways to conceive the affects actualised in the classroom that are subjected to (...)

    Education and the Relation to the Outside: A Little Real Reality.David Savat & Greg Thompson - 2015 - Deleuze and Guatarri Studies 9 (3):273-300.
    One of the more dominant themes around the use of Deleuze and Guattari's work, including in this special issue, is a focus on the radical transformation that educational institutions are undergoing, and which applies to administrator, student and educator alike. This is a transformation that finds its expression through teaching analytics, transformative teaching, massive open online courses and updateable performance metrics alike. These techniques and practices, as an expression of control society, constitute the new sorts of machines that frame and (...)

    The Logics of Good Teaching in an Audit Culture: A Deleuzian Analysis.Greg Thompson & Ian Cook - 2013 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 45 (3):243-258.
    This article examines the attempted reform of education within an emerging audit culture in Australia that has led to the implementation of a high-stakes testing regime known as NAPLAN. NAPLAN represents a machine of auditing, which creates and accounts for data that are used to measure, amongst other things, good teaching. In particular, we address the logics of a policy intervention that aims to improve the quality of education through returning ?good teaching?. Using Deleuze?s concepts of series, events, copies and (...)
