Literature Review

Part of the Policy Implications of Research in Education book series (PIRE, volume 4)


The previous chapter contextualized the three background fields in which the study at the core of the book is located. It introduced the IB’s Primary Years Programme (IBPYP), it gave an outline of the Indonesian educational context, and it described issues related to remote schooling. This chapter now presents a review of key concepts underpinning the study. It is organized into two main sections. It begins by fore-grounding the ever-changing macro level phenomenon of globalization. The second section then details the changing face of international education, and international schools and teachers, as well as the ideological constructs they espouse such as ‘international mindedness’.
