9781433118876: The New Development Paradigm: Education, Knowledge Economy and Digital Futures (Global Studies in Education)

Although the concept of «development education» has been widely adopted, the term is still not widely understood. With the advent of globalization, the knowledge economy, and, in particular, the formulation of the World Bank’s «knowledge for development» strategy and the UNDP’s «creative economy», development issues have become a central part of education and education has become central to development. It is time to reassess the standard development education paradigm and to investigate the possibilities that take into account emerging trends. The New Development Paradigm, written by international authorities, focuses on three related themes: education, the knowledge economy and openness; social networking, new media and social entrepreneurship in education; and technology, innovation and participatory networks.

Review:

«‘The New Development Paradigm’ is a fresh, innovative and necessary collection of articles exploring the connection between education, modernity and modes of creativity that might inform the new digital age. Peters, Besley and Araya provide an excellent set of chapters on the need to make education more open, rethink the modernist notion of rationality and adopt projects and learning strategies that are responsive to a new understanding of both the critical agents necessary for a global democracy and the formative cultures that are necessary for it to exist. This is a stunning book that every educator and student should own and read.» (Henry Giroux, Global Television Network Chair and Professor of English and Cultural Studies, McMaster University)
«Here is a book that is finally tackling the general trends towards openness, participation and sharing, and the ways in which these new trends are affecting individual and social learning as well as business and social innovation and development. This book of in-depth essays tackles these interconnected issues head on and inquires into the shape of an emerging integrative eco-system that is taking advantage of all the recent social innovation to give new hope to the perennial movements for social empowerment.» (Michel Bauwens, Founder, Peer to Peer Foundation)
«This book provides probing and insightful perspectives on education and development in the digital age. It avoids both the exaggerated optimism and the unhelpfully dismissive pessimism often associated with talk of knowledge societies and economies. Peters, Besley and Araya have assembled an eclectic set of essays with a strong international cast of contributing authors who draw on aesthetics, cultural studies and political economy to address key questions relating to creativity, openness and communication in 21st-century education.» (Peter Roberts, University of Canterbury, New Zealand)
«Developments in information and communication technologies and the creation of cyberinfrastructures are dramatically transforming the production and dissemination of knowledge, creating the conditions of possibility for new modalities of teaching and learning. Open learning, open innovation, e-learning, cyberlearning, user-generated and user-created media, etc., provide opportunities today for more integrated, participatory networks of critical citizenship. Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr, Second Life, World of Warcraft, Wikipedia, Ning, and YouTube and Peer-to-Peer networks are heralding a new age in which the rhizomatic network is replacing the isolated individual as the main unit of analysis, expanding potentialities to bring about new ecologies of participation and meaning-making and perhaps even a new digital socialism for the 21st century. ‘The New Development Paradigm’ is at the cutting edge of scholarship attempting to guide educators through the new digital age.» (Peter McLaren, Professor, Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, UCLA, and Distinguished Fellow in Critical Studies, Chapman University)
