A Closer Look at the Impact of Globalization on Science Education
Clothey, Rebecca; Mills, Michelle; Baumgarten, Jacqueline
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v5 n2 p305-313 Jun 2010
This paper provides a historical overview of globalisation in order to illustrate how globalisation both shapes and is shaped by external forces. The authors use this perspective to generate a dialogue about the science education project "The Case of Sustainability by the Bay", and raise some questions to further the discussion on the impact of globalisation on science education. The paper also discusses the importance of recognizing the historic developments around globalisation in order to understand how changes in the global economy have shaped and continue to shape education through policy regarding funding, curriculum development and implementation, as well as trends in teacher preparation and education. The paper concludes by offering implications for policy makers, researchers, and teacher educators as it relates to science education generally, and globalisation particularly.
