Implications of Microelectronically Transmitted Information for Global Education


by Chadwick F. Alger 1986

In the analysis that follows we will first turn to the question of global education in the United States, which will be discussed under three headings: (1) What is global education? (2) Why do people feel isolated from the world, although they live in an age of "interdependence"? and (3) the relevance of MTI to global education in the United States. We shall then turn to (4) the impact of MTI on education in the Third World. This has brought a Third World response, namely, (5) demands for a New World Information and Communications Order, which has in turn brought a United States response, (6) United States withdrawal from UNESCO. This issue illustrates the impact of MTI on relations of the United States with the world and the difficult policy challenges this creates. The chapter concludes with a discussion of (7) implications for educational policy.
