Williamson B (2017) Educating Silicon Valley: corporate education reform and the reproduction of the techno-economic revolution, Review of Education, Pedagogy and Cultural Studies, 39 (3), pp. 265-288.
Silicon Valley is seeking to reform education in its own image, as part of a ‘techno-economic revolution’ that is spreading globally. This essay provides an original analysis of how Silicon Valley is seeking to reproduce its centrality to the techno-economic revolution through technology-based reformatory efforts in education. In so doing, it is becoming a major influence in corporate education reform, seeking to take its new pedagogic practices, technical platforms and economic models to the reform of state education at massive scale.
