Castner, Daniel; Maron-Puntarelli, Cecilia – Global Education Review, 2022
For early childhood educators, few individuals have more historical significance than Friedrich Froebel.

Flemig, Sophie; McNair, Lynn – Global Education Review, 2022
In this article, we engage with a question that has occupied the professional, policy, and popular discourse on education and socialization: are a child's development potential and outcomes contingent on innate abilities ("nature") or environment ("nurture") (Plomin, DeFries, & Fulker, 1988; Stiles, 2011; Tabery, 2014;…

Krengel, Fabian – Global Education Review, 2021
A key goal of global education in language teaching is to "have students 'think globally and act locally'"(Cates, 2013, p. 278) -- an idea in line with the concept of glocality.

Globally, there is consensus among education stakeholders that early childhood education sets a foundation for children's development, learning, and future life achievements.

Mikuska, Éva; Fairchild, Nikki – Global Education Review, 2020
Technocratic accountability, which is impacting ECEC practices in England, is where the government favors evidence-based knowledge to work with children.

Whitty, Pam; Lysack, Monica; Lirette, Patricia; Lehrer, Joanne; Hewes, Jane – Global Education Review, 2020
We are five early childhood researchers, from across Canada, thrown together amongst a series of alarming discourses, where developmental, economic, and neuroscientific rationales for ECEC drown out alternative theoretical perspectives, as well as personal experience, values, subjective knowledges, and the fierce passion we feel for our work. In…

Greece is one of the many countries, which still utilize a split Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) system. In fact, this dichotomy characterizes not only preschool programs, but also higher education institutions which train pre-service ECEC educators. Recently, Greek government's Organization for ECEC organized an open debate for the…

Barrenechea, Ignacio – Global Education Review, 2018
The specialized literature in the field of education has not focused in what ways the multilingual classroom setting exacerbates teachers' tension concerning the need to comply with standards, on the one hand, and the aspiration to embrace diversity, on the other hand. That is to say, there is a need to understand how teachers adapt to confront…
