The politics of education and technology : conflicts, controversies, and connections( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "This book provides a much needed critical perspective on the use of digital technology in education. Drawing on a wealth of theoretical and empirical work, it examines the stakeholders in education technology, the struggles to settle how technology should be used in education, and the questions that underpin these debates: What, exactly, is the purpose of education? How can we use technology to achieve it? Whose answers to these questions win out in civic discussion, and whose win in the marketplace? With chapters covering everything from single-school studies to international political initiatives, The Politics of Education and Technology lays bare the messy realities of technology use in education and their implications for contemporary society."

Democracy, Education and Research The Conditions of Social Change by Keri Facer( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are many books focusing upon recipe-like strategies for undertaking research, and there are many books on the politics of change and sustainable change in communities. However in this ground-breaking book four leading experts in the field of research combine their talents to offer a very different focus: how practices and processes of research and education can create fundamental, radical social change. Here the authors assess the meaning of ' public impact' by rethinking what is meant by a ' public' and how it is

Education, technology, and social change by Keri Facer( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the twenty-first century educators around the world are being told that they need to adapt young people for an increasingly global knowledge economy in which digital technologies intensify competition and change. They are being asked to re-design and re-imagine educational systems to meet this future world. Too rarely, however, do we ask whether this vision is robust, achievable or even desirable or whether alternative futures might be in development. Drawing on ten years of research into educational innovation, incorporating

Contesting anticipatory regimes in education: exploring alternative educational orientations to the future( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: Critical forms of imagination and anticipation – particularly those which work in the realm of the 'not-yet' possible – are necessary for human and ecological survival and for democratic social life, and educational institutions have an important role to play in enabling their development. There is a dysfunctional relationship between learning and the future in educational systems which are dominated by modern anticipatory regimes and the hegemony of political monocultures, specifically neoliberal modernity. Enlarging understandings of the diversity of knowledge forms and educational practices which support engagement with open futures offers resourcs of hope for challenging repressive regimes of anticipation in education. Abstract: Advanced capitalist societies are characterized by three forms of power and powerlessness: a hegemony of political monoculture; the 'undoing' of democratic forms of political agency and subjects; and the 'political construction of hopelessness' in challenging these structural foreclosures and ideological consensus. In this context, how can learning enable collective survival in the present and enlarge possibilities for yet-unimaginable alternative futures to emerge? This paper explores this question by juxtaposing three models of educational futurity in different neoliberal contexts. The first, dominating state education policy and practice in Anglospheric and specifically British institutions, promotes performative and disciplinary regimes of anticipation. The second, circulating in discourse and in experimental spaces within this hegemonic context, advocates an emergentist, critical and creative relationship to the future. The third, which thrives in the margins and relative exteriorities of the capitalist world system, promotes an ecological, epistemically disobedient and utopian mode of anticipatory consciousness which 'projects emancipation beyond the constraints of the existing discourse' of colonial modernity. We do not attempt to compare these different contexts and models in this paper, but to read each for its difference to illustrate that modes of anticipation in education influence the construction of hopelessness and hope by shaping what is learned about the nature of political possibility and the relationship between learning and the future. We argue that pedagogies which embrace critical modes of anticipation offer alternatives to contemporary regimes of anticipation in education in Britain today
