Abstract [en]

Why is it, for example, necessary for pupils to learn English and why do they have to know about other cultures? One answer may be that society is changing constantly and that we live in a more and more global society. The global perspective may be recognised in different ways. Many products are often the same all over the world. Films and commercials are also many times the same. Wherever you are you may order a pizza or Chinese food. Pollutions spread over the borders of nations, and so on and on. But, what is then the content in a deeper perspective and what are the forces behind this continuously ongoing globalisation process? How does it impact, for example, the activities that take place at schools? If we are able to catch central aspects of the globalisation process as phenomenon is seems also possible to handle at least some aspects of its consequences, both positive and negative ones. Accordingly, from this perspective, it gives schools an important role to play in order to prepare pupils for their present and coming lives. From these points of view the aim of this paper is to discuss:

  • How is it possible to understand the concept globalisation and what consequences may the ongoing globalisation process have on schools?
