Globalisation, Global English: "Futures Trading" in Early Childhood Education
Kennedy, Anne
Early Years: An International Journal of Research and Development, v26 n3 p295-306 Oct 2006
This paper explores my thinking about the issues which surround globalisation and Global English and their connections with the literacy practices, literacy events and futures for young children in home and out-of-home communities or institutions such as kindergartens, childcare or the early years of school. Exemplars from Australia and Singapore are provided to highlight these issues and the possible risks or benefits for children and families that seem to flow from globalisation processes. Central to the purpose of the paper are provocations for the field of early childhood education in order to further the discussions on how we respond to the challenges of connecting between the local and the global in our role as policy-makers, parents, teacher educators or early childhood teachers.
