Globalization and the Future of Canadian Education

Edited by Marita Moll  

Paperback $24.95

This collaboration of critical essays on the computerization of Canada’s schools examines the current technological revolution in the broader perspective of globalization and the neo-liberal agenda. The authors question the assumptions that technologically-enhanced education will save money, help students and teachers, and create a generation of well-paid knowledge workers. Computers may inform, but only teachers can help students analyze and interpret this information. The authors call for a slowdown in the rapid introduction of information technology, so that its dangers as well as potential advantages can be adequately discussed.
