Chapter 12: Glocal education: theories, research and implications
Restricted access

The global standardization characterizing globalization has often time fell short of accounting for the diversity of local contexts. Glocalization has emerged as a remedy to help localize globalization. In that context, glocalization has become a form of globalization, but with its own form of analytical autonomy, as well as facets encompassing globality, localness, multistakeholderness, segmented inclusiveness, and hybridization. Similar to the way globalization has influenced education to facilitate the emergence of global education, glocalization has engendered glocal education, which is the integration of the local and the global into educational leadership, policy, curriculum, and instructional practices. This chapter provides a synthesis of theories and research on glocal education, as well as its implications for the learners of tomorrow, public policy, leadership, curriculum, assessment, and organizational climate.
