Fitzsimons, Gail E. (2002). What Counts As Mathematics?: Technologies of Power in Adult and Vocational Education. Mathematics Education Library. This book, aimed at mathematics and vocational educators and researchers, analyzes the historical, sociological, and practical elements of mathematics within vocational education against the emerging impact of technology. Focus is on the current situation of mathematics within Australian vocational and technical education and how that might be applied to similar institutions internationally. Chapters 1 and 2 present reviews of literature that focus on the institutions and images of mathematics and mathematics education. The relationship between technology and mathematics in the workplace is discussed. Chapter 3 provides theoretical perspectives on technologies of power and new forms of knowledge production. Concepts of symbolic control, pedagogy, and identity are emphasized.  After a brief introduction to the historical and contextual setting of Australian vocational and technical education, Chapters 4-6 considers technologies of power. Starting with the micro-level of teaching and learning, through the mid-level of curriculum and the conditions of teachers' work, the analysis ends on the macro-level of knowledge production and distribution, where the de-institutionalization of education is suggested as a serious challenge. Chapter 7 considers the construction of image in relation to technologies of management and to vocational mathematics as located within the public image of mathematics education. There are four figures, a glossary of acronyms, a 496-item bibliography; and name and subject indexes. Descriptors: Adult Education, Competency Based Education, Cultural Images, Developed Nations

Woodhouse, David (2004). The Quality of Quality Assurance Agencies, Quality in Higher Education. This paper traces some aspects of the growth over the last 20 years in the number of quality assurance agencies in higher education, that is, organisations with some responsibility for the quality of teaching, research and other activities in higher education institutions. Initially, staff of these agencies were largely amateurs in the field, and little theory or experience existed for the agencies to draw on. In 1991, agencies world-wide associated together in an International Network for mutual advice and support. Since then, the practice of quality assurance has developed the characteristics of a profession, and agencies have turned their attention to the quality of their own operations. The International Network of agencies has addressed the question 'what makes a good quality assurance agency?' This action is timely, because the increase in globalisation has increased the need for agencies to interact across national boundaries, and to do this effectively they must have confidence in each others' judgements.   [More]  Descriptors: Higher Education, Quality Control, Agency Role, Public Agencies

Lindblom, Kenneth (2003). Literature and Public Discourse in Times of Global Unrest, English Journal.

Allsup, Randall Everett (2004). Imagining Possibilities in a Global World: Music, Learning and Rapid Change, Music Education Research. This essay examines the shift toward a globally interdependent world, starting with the ontological premise that thinking, identity and action are subsumed by culture. The author explores the view that globalism, with its break from modernist constraints, may enable liberation. The post-Soviet borderless economy implies a shift of rule and a new sovereignty. The current US educational system does not reflect the rapid pace of global change. The author discusses the role of music educators as artists facilitating cultural and social transitions in the post-September 11, 2001, climate.   [More]  Descriptors: Music, Music Teachers, Music Education, Educational Change

Sixty teachers participated in this study with an open-ended questionnaire about their understanding of creativity. The data were analyzed based on Urban's (1995) three components of creativity. The findings indicated that these science teachers had a thorough understanding of the cognitive component and a strong association of creativity with intellectual ability, but overidentified with the cognitive component, showing less awareness of the personal and environmental components of creativity. To shift their understanding to a more balanced view, personality and environmental components, as well as attributes in other component areas, should be emphasized.   [More]   [More]  Descriptors: Globalization, Educational Development, Science Teachers, Creativity

Kumar, Prem (2004). Lifelong Learning in Singapore: Where Are We Now?, International Journal of Lifelong Education. The term lifelong learning has been used in different contexts and in policy application for a wide variety of purposes and initiatives. Singapore's approach to lifelong learning is pragmatic and rational. It is one of the economic drivers used by policy makers to enhance Singapore's competitiveness and is viewed as an antidote against unemployment. With the emergence of a more integrated and interdependent global economy, the premium placed on ideas and continuous learning becomes critical to an individual, organization and the country. This paper offers a snapshot of some of the current responses to the challenges and the perceived issues from the perspective of the government, organizations and individuals. The discussion would also cover a number of policy implications that may overlap and interconnect in practice.   [More]  Descriptors: Globalization, Foreign Countries, Lifelong Learning, Unemployment

Morton, Chris; Mojkowski, Charles (1991). The Place of Global Reality in Interdisciplinary Settings: Using Modern Technology to Link Classrooms for Globalization. The Global Education Model (GEM) Project, an undertaking of the Putnam-Northern Westchester Board of Cooperative Educational Services, is part of a larger effort to link students throughout the United States with their counterparts in other countries. GEM's educational technology is augmented by implementing, testing and analyzing nationally recognized programs to investigate the educational application of international telecommunications in classrooms, its effect on instruction, and the strategies required for successful, expanded school-based use. The model is based on the assumption that a global approach to education, with attention paid to cultural differences and an emphasis on interdisciplinary studies, will better prepare children to live, learn, and work as twenty-first century citizens. Formative evaluation of the GEM Project reinforces the importance of structured planning, educational applications, and coordination. The National Geographic Society's KidsNet and the University of Maryland's ICONS constitute the formal part of the GEM research process; informal programs have also been developed in the New York/Moscow Schools' Telecommunications Project using experience gained from the formal programs. Developing a telecommunications support system for a global education program requires attention to a comprehensive global education curriculum, powerful communications processes, and appropriate technology connections; staff development is a key ingredient of all three components. Global education provides a motivating experience for students and teachers to connect with the larger world of learning and work that is outside the school, and often outside their own community and country.

Committee for Economic Development (1998). America's Basic Research: Prosperity Through Discovery. A Policy Statement by the Research and Policy Committee of the Committee for Economic Development. This policy statement looks at America's basic research enterprise and lays out the processes and systematic reforms needed to meet emerging risks to the outcomes from investments in basic research. The Committee for Economic Development (CED) undertook this project in the belief that significant progress with many of society's problems and new discoveries will primarily depend upon fundamental scientific insights derived from basic research. Fourteen recommendations include: (1) Policymakers in Congress and the Administration should set broad national priorities for basic research that reflect the needs of society at large; (2) Federal support for basic research should continue to be diverse in its sources and objectives; (3) Within broad priorities established by policymakers, the primary mechanisms for allocating federal basic research funds in all agencies and to all institutions should be based on scientific merit determined through peer review; (4) Basic research should be a high priority in the federal budget in the decades to come; (5) Leadership and productivity of the nation's research universities should continue to guide other institutions receiving federal support; (6) Mechanisms should be devised to allow researchers to compete for longer-term funding, and administrative burdens from granting agencies should be reduced; (7) Development of simplified system for determining indirect costs; (8) Clear definition of the missions of the Department of Energy's national laboratories and realignment of missions and functions; (9) Government should not be in the business of directly funding the development and commercialization of technologies; (10) The federal government should continue to play a major role in funding large-scale infrastructure projects that are used extensively by many; (11) Raising of academic achievement in math and science in grades K-12 through adoption of nationals, policies to increase teacher knowledge and skills, and upgrades in classroom curricula, facilities, and teaching materials; (12) Higher prioritization of graduate training and increased federal funding of scholarships and training grants; (13) Industry-university relations and university patenting and licensing should be directed towards maximizing benefits for society at large; and (14) Expansion of U.S. efforts to benefit from international collaboration and the globalization of basic research. Two appendixes are included: (1) Overview of Resources for Basic Research; and (2) University Patenting Guidelines.   [More]  Descriptors: Economic Development, Economic Progress, Technology Transfer, Research

Garcia, Eugene E. (1996). Children of La Frontera. Foreword. The linguistic and cultural diversity of America's school population has increased dramatically during the past decade, and is expected to increase even more in the future. But, for many children of immigrant and minority families, U.S. education is not a successful experience. One fourth of African Americans, one third of Hispanics, one half of Native Americans, and two thirds of immigrant students drop out of school, compared to one tenth of non-Hispanic White students. Confronted with this dismal reality, educators, parents, and policy makers urge change. Changes might be needed but will be meaningless unless we begin to think differently about these students–to view them in new ways that may contradict conventional notions and to recognize their needs. This is particularly the case for educators and communities along "la frontera," an extensive geographic region along the Mexican-U.S. border that is a significant social and economic zone distinct from either nation. It would be helpful for educators to realize that: (1) low, not high, levels of immigration are unusual for the United States, and today's kindergartners will experience increasing diversity over their lifetimes; (2) "la frontera" has always been multicultural and multilingual; (3) changing labor markets and the globalization of the economy indicate that past ways of preparing students for employment may not work now; (4) defining students of "la frontera" as limited-English-speaking masks their diversity of language, culture, and educational experience; (5) assimilation doesn't equal success along "la frontera"; and (6) these children will change American society.   [More]  Descriptors: Acculturation, Education Work Relationship, Elementary Secondary Education, Immigrants

Friedel, J. N., Ed. (1992). An Environmental Scan Update, 1992-93. 2020: Perfect Vision for the Next Century, An Environmental Scan Update. A key component to Eastern Iowa Community College District's (EICCD) strategic planning process, called "2020 Vision: A Perfect Vision for the Future," was the publication of the report "An Environmental Scan" in 1989, which summarized major trends occurring in the external environment which may impact the community college, the industries and communities it serves, and social, economic, and political structures and processes. It summarized these trends, events, and issues in five broad categories: (1) the changing population and demographics; (2) the changing workforce; (3) political, societal, and ecological changes; (4) changing technologies and the information explosion; and (5) the world economy. In September 1991, the EICCD began publishing updates to the Scan, each addressing a specific theme and summarizing events, trends, and projections affecting the district. The 2 volumes presented here contain a combined total of 19 updates. The following topics are addressed in volume 1: (1) Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS)–global spread and implications for health care; (2) health care–the crisis in rural medical care, alternative care, and national trends; (3) health services–growth areas and employment prospects; (4) jobs–business trends, fast growing jobs, economic trends, educational requirements; (5) the American political scene–implications for community colleges; (6) new information and technology–information technology and technology transfer; (7) computer technology; (8) employment prospects for computer technology personnel; (9) the Iowa economy–largest employers in the state, wages, Iowa's goods- and service-producing industries; and (10) health occupations–EICCD's service area, and national health occupations. Topics covered in volume 2 concern: (1) the most important issues facing the EICCD–political changes, educational challenges, job skills of the future, globalization, work force and demographic changes, health and health care, societal issues, volunteerism; (2) kindergarten through 12th grade education–high school graduation rates, illiteracy, drugs and violence, funding; (3) the global population–family planning, population growth and the environment, primary health care needs, gap between rich and poor, refugees; (4) the national population–1990 census data, immigration and state population projections; (5) the Midwest and Iowa populations; (6) the population and demographics of EICCD's service area; (7) Iowa's economic and employment future; (8) the United States economy–job markets, defense industry, environmental protection; and (9) the restructuring of the American workforce–temporary workers, joblessness, stress, and standards of living. In both volumes, references are listed with each update.   [More]  Descriptors: Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, Allied Health Occupations Education, College Planning, Community Colleges

Meyn, Hermann (1991). Update on Germany: Now Eastern Germany Gets a Free Press. Special Report SO 8, 1991. Since the former East German Communist State–the German Democratic Republic (GDR)–was incorporated into the Federal Republic of Germany, the federal constitution has been valid throughout the whole of Germany, guaranteeing press freedom and ending press censorship in eastern Germany. In October 1989, the GDR had 39 daily newspapers (many published by the Socialist Unity Party of Germany (SED), 31 weekly papers and illustrated magazines, over 500 technical and specialized periodicals, and over 600 church papers and factory newspapers. A system of guidance and control by the SED rendered direct censorship unnecessary since, as a matter of course, the press published only what was acceptable to the SED. The period between October 1989 and October 1990 is seen in retrospect to have been a time of great experimentation and freedom for the press. Less than 2 years after the democratic transformation of the GDR, the structural shape of the West German press has become entrenched in most parts of the five new federal states: there are only a few supra-regional newspapers; the regional press has established a strong position; there is virtually no party press; and the press has become "concentrated" as mergers between publishing chains continue and as competition forces some newspapers and periodicals out of business. The large West German publishing concerns are likely to gain the edge on the market in eastern Germany. At the same time, foreign multi-media concerns have gained a foothold in the new federal states. This increasing globalization of the mass media (especially regarding former communist states) is of concern and interest to media students. (One table of data is included.)
