Redefining Educational Boundaries with Technology: The Systemic Perspective

Abstract

This paper examines global trends in education reform from the point of view of a specific references selected within the systemic branch of educational literature. It is argued that a sharper consciousness of the specificities of the global educational environment, with a correspondingly sharper differentiation of the offer of the mainstream educational players, will have to come about in a near future. Communication, the primary constitutive element of educational reality, is gradually expanding into latent domains made available by new technologies and activating in them completely different educational languages and different codifications of educational success. Implications and suggestions for research that can highlight the challenges this surplus of ways for experiencing Education may pose to the traditional forms of regulating the educational provision are included.
