Globalisation, the Learning Society and Comparative Education.
Jarvis, Peter
Comparative Education, v36 n3 p343-55 Aug 2000
Information technology, empowered by those who control capital, has become the global infrastructure, resulting in the development of learning societies as superstructural phenomena. Four dimensions of the learning society--futuristic, planned, reflective, and market--are analyzed, and their implications for the study of comparative education are explored. Comparativeness is broader than education and should encompass learning. (Contains 42 references.) (TD)
