Description

Changing Urban Education considers the way we approach teaching and learning in the urban context and examines the debates concerning developments in wider social, cultural, political and economic contexts. Grounded in a strong conceptual, theoretical framework, this accessible text will guide the reader through this evolving area. Reflective exercises, interviews, chapter summaries and useful websites will encourage and support student learning and the application of new concepts. Recent debates and developments are considered, including: * The city as a social, cultural and economic resource * Virtual communities * The impact of the forces of globalisation on urban education * Challenging schools and urban policy * Mobile urban learning Changing Urban Education is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students on education studies and related courses.
