About this book

This volume examines the challenges weighing on the future of education in the face of globalization in the twenty-first century. Bringing together eleven authors who explore the paradox of an “after” to the future of education, each chapter in this book targets three important areas: ecology as understood in the broader framework of globalization and pedagogy; curriculum concerns which impact learning; and the pervasiveness of technology in education today.

Reviews

“Celebrating the reverberating presence of Terry Carson, this collection contradicts the zeitgeist jan jagodzinski so stunningly depicts in his impressive introduction. What a profoundly heartening book!” (William F. Pinar, Professor and Canada Research Chair, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada)

“This book arrives to jar us with its vision of the end of the world as we know it and to push us to think otherwise about education. The authors in this stunning collection speak to us from their years of experience as educators and curriculum scholars about what it means to educate at a moment when humankind appears to be hurtling towards its own death.” (Peter Taubman, Professor of Secondary Education, Brooklyn College, City University of New York, USA)
