Digital Democracy and Global Citizenship Education: Mutually Compatible or Mutually Complicit?
de Oliveira Andreotti, Vanessa; Pashby, Karen
Educational Forum, v77 n4 p422-437 2013
This article uses a critique of modernity to examine the perceived relationship between global citizenship education (GCE) and digital democracy (DD). We review critiques of citizenship education in the global imperative and of the relationship of technology to democratic engagement. An analogy expresses the problematic way that GCE and DD are both mutually compatible and complicit in ethical global justice issues. We end with a suggestion of a pedagogical framework through which educators can engage with an ethical approach to GCE and DD.
