Personalisation and globalisation: Three paradoxes facing educators

By Valerie Hannon
Price: $25.91

The author discusses two seemingly unrelated concepts – personalisation and globalisation – and addresses the tensions and paradoxes associated with the two trends. She comments on the impact of globalisation on education policy and curriculum; explains the nature of personalisation, distinguishing it from individualisation; and outlines its relationship with a range of learning technologies. She identifies three paradoxes emerging from our need both to build ‘global competence’ and to focus on the peronalised learning needs of each individual. She concludes these are not neatly resolvable, but that there must be more public scrutiny and debate about our real options – as opposed to those which applied in the 19th and 20th centuries, and which no longer do.
