Scenes from Calypso's Cave: On Globalization and the Pedagogical Prospects of the Gift.
Jardine, David W.; Clifford, Patricia; Friesen, Sharon
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v46 n1 p27-35 Spr 2000
Without a careful critique of commodification, globalization turns out to be nothing more than the new colonialism. A series of ordinary classroom events explores how treating the classroom as a gift economy alters the globalizing effect of the Internet from delivery of commodities to something that addresses children and opens up worlds for them.
