About this product
- DescriptionAlthough the concept of development education has been widely adopted, the term is still t widely understood. With the advent of globalization, the kwledge ecomy, and, in particular, the formulation of the World Bank's kwledge for development strategy and the UNDP's creative ecomy , development issues have become a central part of education and education has become central to development. It is time to reassess the standard development education paradigm and to investigate the possibilities that take into account emerging trends. The New Development Paradigm, written by international authorities, focuses on three related themes: education, the kwledge ecomy and openness; social networking, new media and social entrepreneurship in education; and techlogy, invation and participatory networks.
