International Bureau of Education, Geneva (Switzerland).; Central Board of Secondary Education, Delhi (India).
The International Bureau of Education (IBE) is focusing its program activity on the adaptation of the content of education to the challenges of the 21st century. IBE's program has two components: integrating the concern of living together into the content of education; and adapting the content of education to cope with some of the challenges raised by a globalized world. This report is a compilation of presentations made during a regional workshop in New Delhi (India) in 1999 which catered to the concerns of South and South-East Asia. The report is divided into five parts. Part 1, "The Impact of Globalization on Curriculum Development," contains the keynote lecture which outlines the implications for education of the phenomenon of globalization and stresses the renewed urgency for curricula to promote peaceful coexistence and cooperation among pupils. Part 2, "Some Challenges for the Adaptation of Content Raised by the Principle of Learning to Live Together," presents key current concerns in curriculum reform. Part 3, "Interdisciplinarity, School-Based Management and Non-School Science Education: A Few Topics for Reflection by Curriculum Developers," includes three case studies from countries outside the Asian region. Part 4, "Current Trends in the Adaptation of Educational Content in South and South East Asia," focuses on the need for curriculum development to be a continuous holistic process aimed at real and meaningful change in the classroom. Part 5, "Country Papers on Curriculum Development from Selected States in South and South-East Asia," concludes the report. (BT)
