Synopsis

Knowledge, Power and Learning by Carrie Paechter

`This is a very useful collection. It brings a wide range of articles on aspects of learning in different settings - from high tech companies in Cambridge to school classrooms' - Widening Participation and Lifelong Learning `This book will stimulate thought in any reader and could be of interest to academics in all subjects, or to educational developers - although it may be of particular use to students of cultural studies, education and communications' - Escalate `Knowledge, Power and Learning will be of interest to many adult educators who are interested in the lifelong learning age and makes, too a contribution to the relatively scarce literature concerned with the school curriculum in this lifelong learning perspective' - Studies in the Education of Adults New technologies are altering the relationship between knowledge, power and learning. The explosion of information resulting from the proliferation of Internet use has led to new questions about the nature of knowledge and how it is legitimated. At the same time, the new emphasis on learning as a lifelong process is changing relationships between teachers and learners and focusing on the multiplicity of sites in which learning can take place. This book considers the influence of the `information age' on the changing relationship between power and knowledge and how this affects learning in a wide range of situations, from the school to the learning organization and from the musical conservatoire to the high-tech workplace.
