Postmodernism and education

  1. 1. • Postmodernism is based on the view that society has entered a new phase. • Fragmentation. • Death of the meta-narrative. • Flexibility. • Relativity of truth.
  2. 2. In a diverse fragmented society people can ‘pick and mix’ identity.
  3. 3. Fordism = assembly line mass production
  4. 4. We have largely shifted away from this type of production. New technology and electronic media has had a huge impact. Production now based on ‘Flexible Specialisation’ This calls for a different kind of worker.
  5. 5. Fordism Post-Fordism Work Low level of skill Routine, repetitive work Skilled, adaptable workforce Transferable skills School Inequality is necessary (Bowles and Gintis) Self-motivation Self-supervision Creativity Transferable skills Education is moving towards education being customised for the individual.
  6. 6. Modern Education controlled by state One size fits all Fixed in time (strict timetable) Fixed period in life Teacher led – students passive Postmodern Controlled by communties Diverse and customised Flexible (distance learning) Lifelong learning Active learners, learning through experience
  7. 7. Reject Bowles and Gintis idea that inequality is fundamental to society and that education reproduces inequality. The correspondence principle no longer operates.
  8. 8. • Exaggeration of the extent of diversity • National curriculum is still one size fits all. • Ignores the continuing importance of inequality in education.
