Global Learning in a Changing and Unpredictable World

VIEW FULL TEXT | ISSUE CONTENTS LIST

This article asserts that the changing nature of present-day society has significant implications for education. However, it questions the extent to which the current educational 'diet' provided to the majority of young learners is fit for purpose, i.e. how far it is preparing them to survive and thrive in, and contribute to, an increasingly globalised society. The article explores some of the features of a fit for purpose education and the possibility that the domination of the curriculum by core subject areas or core skills and the resulting marginalisation of other essential elements may not be meeting the educational needs of young people who, after all, will be living in a society that many of us can barely envisage. Future citizens will require, and have a right to, Global Learning - an educational experience that is fit for purpose.
