`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
This is must read for anyone involved (or seeking to become involved) in lifelong learning. Key issues of the relationship between power and lifelong learning are considered in depth in light of of the impact the changing relationships between educators and learners caused by technology. I would recommend all adult educators treat this book as essential reading.
Very good to use with alternative viewpoints so that students can discuss and debate.
While this is a useful text, the topics covered fall outwith the scope of our course.
Having only briefly glanced at this point, I would be inclined to recommend that this text would be useful for students' extended knowledge and independent study, rather than as a core text.
It is detailed and relevant to the discourse of legitimation of knowledge which is particularly relavant in our current journey towards a 'knowledge' economy.
Interesting and informative perspective on knowledge, power and learning in lifelong learning. Of beneficial use to those working across sectors.
As always, the Learning Matters gives a readable text. Chapter 7 is likely to ignite some reflection for my students to consider skills acquisition.
Some good references provided.
Provides a readable perspective for students who have completed the confinements of ITE and are now starting to critically consider learnings and its relationships.
Will either have as recommended or supplemental for a new Masters in professional development for teachers.
I enjoyed it too. A text that I could take around with me and manage a chapter whenever or wherever.
Excellent articles on power in knowledge and learning
There is much value in this book, especially for those into the more 'technological advancements in education. But because the focus for me is on higher education and widening participation a lot of the text is outside the area of research and focus.
