Changing Education for a Changing World: Internationalizing Education
Idogho, Philipa Omamhe; Eshiotse, Sunday Gabriel
Online Submission, US-China Education Review B 8 p721-725 2012
That change is permanent has never been an issue, but how to anticipate, adopt, equip, and re-position to optimize benefits of change is the heart of research. Thus, true to Marshall McLuhan's prophetic foresight, the world, indeed, has become a village where otherwise local events now exert profound global consequences. In this paper, the phenomenon of change in the context of globalization is briefly examined, vis-a-vis some cardinal aspects of philosophical foundations of the theory and practice of education. Consequently, it is recommended that the principle and practice of education should be re-worked, with significant provision for moral (or character) grooming of the young (who are said to be digital citizens) for the preservation of posterity, among others. [This paper was also presented at the International Conference: Going Global--Internationalizing Higher Education, London, UK, March 13-15, 2012.]
