Defining globalization and assessing its implications, revisited

Abstract:

In defining globalization and assessing its implications for all levels of education, we find that two actors are imposing themselves on educational policy agendas: the market and the transnational corporation. The changes they are encouraging affect not only the formal educational system but also the construction and restructuring of local cultures. The university, the educational level most affected by globalization, has seen enormous expansion accompanied by differentiation of institutions. Likewise, knowledge is being created at multiple sites, among which the university is only one. Globalization is promoting increased knowledge, a byproduct of the constant and rapid exchange of information made possible by computer-mediated technologies. This new type of knowledge is likely to generate winners and losers at individual and national levels—even though the current discourse of globalization glosses over this possibility, preferring to talk instead of opportunities for persons and countries to develop their "comparative advantage."
