Abstract:

"Educating For a Worldview consists of an array of essays from scholars from around the world including the Fiji Islands, Hong Kong, Canada, Japan, India, Nigeria, and the United States. The essays included in this volume have been selected from papers and lectures presented at the eleventh Triennial Conference of the World Council for Curriculum and Instruction. These essays cover a range of topics, such as Asian and Pacific indigenous education, peace education, and the use of technology to train teachers in Nigeria. The authors share a commitment to a grassroots model of global education that challenges the traditional 'colonial' model. The new model is holistic as the essays cover topics from elementary, middle, and high school to university and nontraditional adult education."--Publisher description, from p. [4] of cover.
