Welcome to my Wiki!

The primary purpose of this wiki is to explore the ways in which globalization, in conjunction with the emergence of social technologies, calls for a reshaping of the traditional purposes schooling outlined by David Labaree (1997). It has been designed to provide you with an intriguing, interactive experience.

Before you begin, I recommend that you Take This Survey. The survey is intended to:

  • Evoke questions that will help you benefit more fully from your experience with this wiki
  • Provide me with information that will help me to strengthen this work should I decide to reformat the information on this wiki as a standard article for publication in a professional journal
  • Help me to determine an appropriate target audience for this work should I decide to publish it as a standard article in a professional journal
