The New Development Paradigm

Education, Knowledge Economy and Digital Futures

Series:

Edited By Michael Peters, Tina (Athlone C.) Besley and Daniel Araya

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.
