Abstract

Learning and Teaching Around the World is a wide-ranging introduction to diverse experiences, practices and developments in global primary education. It explores different contexts for children's learning, and methods and purposes of primary education, in settings across Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas and Australasia, and addresses wider issues such as the rise of refugee learners and large multigrade classes.

With an explicit focus on comparative and international studies and improving the knowledge, understanding and practice of effective pedagogies for children's learning, this book reflects on key issues such as: Standards for learner-centered education; Patterns of inclusion and exclusion; Defining 'teacher professionalism'; The impact of global education agendas; and, Language policy for schooling and assessment.
