Educating Silicon Valley: Corporate Education Reform and the Reproduction of the Techno-Economic Revolution
Williamson, Ben
Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, v39 n3 p265-288 2017
Silicon Valley's high-tech companies, tech-philanthropists, startups, and culture of venture capital are "the centre of a techno-economic revolution" that is "now spreading outwards across the world, with major societal effects and implications" (Duff 2016, 5). In this article, Ben Williamson traces and maps how education is being reimagined in Silicon Valley to address how it is seeking to reproduce it's centrality to the techno-economic revolution.
