Jeffs and Smith 38 In this view, we do not simply add together individuals and get society. The meaning of democracy and the meaning of education Just how we are to approach democracy is a matter of considerable debate. It envisages a society that itself is intrinsically educative and in which political socialization is a distinctively educative process. Therefore, the stream focuses also on the interplay between learning theories and technologies.
Both learning theories and tools are composed of multiple attributes, and they refer to many aspects and facets which render educational technology highly complex. Evolution in both theory and technology reflects no clear successive breaks or discrete developments, rather, waves of growth and accumulation. Evolutions in society and education have influenced the selection and use of learning theories and technologies; learning theories and technologies are situated in a somewhat vague conceptual field; learning theories and technologies are connected and intertwined by information processing and knowledge acquisition; educational technologies shifted learner support from program or instructor control toward more shared and learner control; and learning theories and findings represent a fuzzy mixture of principles and applications.
The stream discusses the way in which practices, actors and policies of the educational field interact with logics and stakes of the working world. The directions of the debate are various. On the one hand, there are questions about the autonomy of the school field with respect to the demands of the economic and professional systems. Pedagogies based on learning by doing experiences such as the Alternanza Scuola-Lavoro and the university traineeship represent some focus of reflection. Attention is therefore drawn to the differentiation of educational and professional choices based on class, ethnicity and gender lines.
Many outstanding scholars claim that over recent years, research has shown the ways that national governments have seemingly ceded some of their autonomy in education policy development to international organisations in the context of globalisation and one of its conduits, Europeanisation. Indeed, governance has been posing questions, dilemma, conflicts and polemics at national, regional and local levels with single educational institutes being affected.
Relationships among students, families, educators, evaluators, policy makers and administrative managers are characterized by the emerging role of non-state actors and changing role of the states who cooperate and compete in the designing of transnational education policies and instruments; those that are transposed into the national contexts. Traditionally, education, has been firmly controlled by the hegemonic state which held regulatory powers to force compliance. Within transnational governance of education, the authority — as legitimate power — is shared, negotiated and constructed by the various actors which apart from governments include also international organizations, transnational stakeholder associations, ranking agencies, experts and expert groups and others.
Quality assurance and accreditation, international rankings and standardized measures of learning outcomes are some of the key instruments of the contemporary transnational governance of education policies; and they serve differently to different actors in their influence on issues, policies and instruments that shape practices of education institutions. Furthermore, the differences in actual implementation of transnational practices are usually attributed to the influence of national contexts, but rarely are contextual factors fully understood or systematically investigated.
