I was forwarded a list: 14 Best Books about Global Education [link removed per organization's request, sorry] and it is definitely worth passing on. The impact of globalization on education ought to receive more attention than it does. It’s a clearly and emerging issue of vital importance to the future. For some, it is “old hat” already — pockets of the world are all over it. Yet for so many in the mainstream of education, it is somewhat of an alien concept. This phenomenon is not unique to the issue — many times we have emerging issues entrenched in the fringe but unable to reach the core….yet, we should add. (Daresay we add Coursera and open education to this list?).
ConsumerShift readers might enjoy considering what “values types” inform the perspective being presented in these works. Are the works about how we can all learn together in win-win’s? Or is there concern or even panic about new upstarts who are going to beat us? Or practical ways to achieve the best results? Andy Hines
