There is a prime necessity to make a distinction between "education" and "learning." Learning is a human instinct. Education is not. Education is about learning processes designed by adults for the young. In the past two centuries in the industrial era, education has developed into society-wide "school" systems. Young…

Discussion on the crisis in/of the humanities and in/of the university institution has in the past decades become ubiquitous.

Countries with similar levels of economic development often implement different education ICT policies. Much of the existing research attributes such differences to economic and political factors.

Gauthier, Roger-Francois; Le Gouvello, Margaux – European Journal of Education, 2010
The history of education in France, with its inherited link between the Republic and the religion of knowledge, produces a specific form of educational functioning, consubstantial to a tradition of selection and a symptomatic lack of what elsewhere is called a curriculum. While the recent introduction of the "common grounding of knowledge and…
