This highly topical book charts how the tools of technology are altering the ways in which education is being delivered and received. It looks at the huge impact of the World Wide Web on current educational practice and what this means for the students and teachers involved. It also covers the other new technologies that support the delivery of what is now truly global education.
Divided into three clear sections, Globalising Education adopts a systematic and thoroughly researched approach to this exciting topic. The three sections examine:
* how global education is actually delivered in practice
* case studies which investigate current developments and applications in the USA, Europe, the UK and Australia
* conclusions drawn from the general issues covered, as well as an overview of what is happening now and what we might expect to happen in the future.
This book looks at current developments in detail. It is essential reading for all those involved in education - whether as a teacher, student or interested onlooker.
