Complexity and Education

I am trying to find the theoretical framework for my research project. Education, which is my main interest is not an easy construct to define. If the construct is not clear the research outcomes, the findings are not clear either.  In the search of a compelling definition that includes the organic part of it I found “Complexity” a possible candidate to frame my research with.

Some readings so forth:
The complexity of learning I
The complexity of learning II 

And to complement lets see what is science for some interesting scientists?
From Maria Popova in Brainpickings

Freeman Dyson:
All of science is uncertain and subject to revision. The glory of science is to imagine more than we can prove.

Claude Levi-Strauss:
The scientist is not a persona who gives the right answers, he is one who asks the right questions.

Isaac Asimov:
Science does not purvey absolute truth, science is a mechanism. It’s a system for testing your knowledge of nature, it’s a system for testing your thoughts against the universe and seeing whether  they match.
