Inside the learning society( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent political events in the United Kingdom have elevated educational issues to levels of greater prominence than ever before. As the political parties strive to carve out educational blue prints which will provide for today's diverse learning needs, mention and discussion of the learning society has become particularly voguish. But what exactly is the learning society? And how can it be applied to current educational practice? This book traces the history of the concept and discusses the different interpretive models which have been attached to the learning society idea. The book provides in-depth scrutiny of the current debate, including contributed chapters from those public bodies engaged in it, sharpening our understanding of the learning society at a time of some urgency
Transforming learning in schools and communities : the remaking of education for a cosmopolitan society( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many educators have been looking for a fundamentally different approach to engage young people and encourage progress in learning. Supported by recent public policy developments, a transformation is beginning to take place in the practice of many schools. The focus of learning is shifting away from the child as an individual in a classroom detached from the surrounding neighbourhood to a learning community that embraces carers and families as well as young people and teachers. This monograph analyses the organising principles of this cultural transformation and considers how it will shape learning in schools and communities throughout the world. The book brings together key thinkers from the fields of new learning, new communities of educational practice and new forms of educational governance. Arguing for the necessary interconnectedness of pedagogy, institutions and governance, this ground-breaking book will undoubtedly shape the policy agenda in this area for years to come
