Conclusion The Global Learning Academy book
This chapter presents the major dimensions of this learning challenge and admirably outline many of the steps that need to be taken – and in some cases are being taken – to meet it. As education ceases to be simply equated with "schooling," as more and more people gain access to education, as the concept of "lifelong learning" becomes a reality, we move toward an understanding of the emerging world civilization in which education is seen as central to our survival and prosperity, and to the future evolution of life on Earth. It is a central part of everybody's life, all the time. The chapter also covers Three Visions: globalization, scientific/technological change, and social-psychological change. Although it is clear that factors such as national security play a large part. This is especially obvious in regard to high-priority intellectual efforts such as the famous Manhattan Project of World War II.
