    Teachers and Learners in a Time of Big Data.Rachel Buchanan & Amy McPherson - 2019 - Journal of Philosophy in Schools 6 (1).
    Policy and technological transformation have coalesced to usher in massive changes to educational systems over the past two decades. Teachers’ roles, subjectivities and professional identities have been subject to sweeping changes enabled by sophisticated forms of governance. Simultaneously, students have been recast as ‘learners’; like teachers, learners have become subject to new forms of governance, through technological surveillance and datafication. This paper focuses on the intersection of the metrics driven approach to education and the political as a way to re-think (...)

    Book Review: A Theory of Moral Education. [REVIEW]Philip Cam - 2019 - Journal of Philosophy in Schools 6 (1).
    In A Theory of Moral Education, Michael Hand homes in on a central problem of moral education and offers us a solution. Briefly put, the problem is this: There is often widespread disagreement about moral matters, even among those who have thought long and hard about them. So how is moral education possible without resorting to indoctrination? We are all aware of familiar strategies to avoid this problem, such as introducing various moral systems and conflicting beliefs without taking a stand (...)

    Competition, Contest and the Possibility of Egalitarian University Education.Damian Cox - 2019 - Journal of Philosophy in Schools 6 (1).
    Competition and contest underpin academic life in many ways, not all of them constructive or valuable. In this paper I make a start on the task of distinguishing valuable academic competition from its opposite and suggest reforms of academic institutions that would diminish the prevalence of destructive competition and approach more nearly the egalitarian goal of treating all members of the academic community—especially, but not only, students—as equally valued and equally deserving of respect. To do this, I develop a distinction (...)

    It’s Getting Personal: The Ethical and Educational Implications of Personalised Learning Technology.Iris Huis in ’T. Veld & Michael Nagenborg - 2019 - Journal of Philosophy in Schools 6 (1).
    Personalised learning systems—systems that predict learning needs to tailor education to the unique learning needs of individual students—are gaining rapid popularity. Praise for educational technology is often focused on how technology will benefit school systems, but there is a lack of understanding of how it will affect the student and the learning process. By uncovering what the meaning of ‘personal’ is in educational philosophy and as embodied in the technology, we illustrate that these two understandings are different regarding the autonomy (...)

    Education as the Practice of Freedom, From Past to Future: Student Movements and the Corporate University.Anna Hush & Andy Mason - 2019 - Journal of Philosophy in Schools 6 (1).
    As contemporary universities become increasingly deregulated and neoliberalised structures, how is grassroots student political organising to adapt? What role could student organisers, working in coalition with academics, unions and communities, play in shaping the Future University? We argue that student organising has an even more crucial place in the site of the neoliberal university, working against both the corporatisation of the contemporary university, as well as rising neoliberal conditions in the broader communities within which tertiary education is embedded. These conditions, (...)

    Editorial Future Education: Schools and Universities.Michael P. Levine & Laura D'Olimpio - 2019 - Journal of Philosophy in Schools 6 (1).
    While some may argue that universities are in a state of crisis, others claim that we are living in a post-university era; a time after universities. If there was a battle for the survival of the institution, it is over and done with. The buildings still stand. Students enrol and may attend lectures, though let’s be clear—most do not. But virtually nothing real remains. What some mistakenly take to be a university is, in actuality, an ‘uncanny’ spectral presence; ‘the nagging (...)

    The Evolution of Learning: Post-Pedagogical Lessons for the Future University.Mitch Parsell & Christine Chinchen - 2019 - Journal of Philosophy in Schools 6 (1).
    This article offers a post-pedagogical image of universities. We explore two main purposes of university education: creating an educated public and preparing learners for their future careers. This exploration draws on philosophers Barnett, MacIntyre and Nussbaum. We then utilise a series of reports from The Foundation for Young Australians to offer insights into the changing nature of society, technology, and worklife. The evolution of models or theories of learning sets the scene for the framework for how to structure the future (...)
