Postcolonial information hypothesis and information communications technology learning

Editorial

Dr. Tamaro J. Green

 

Emerging challenges in the applications of learning via information communications technology may complicate the postcolonial information hypothesis in education (Hussein, 2012).  Hussein (2012) combines Freirian theory and postcolonial theory to review practices in information communication technology education systems.  Viruru (2005) provides many examples of the commercialization of education in the privatization of educational systems, financial investments in educational institutions by corporations, increase in advertisements directed towards children, commercialization of school materials, and influence of corporations in educational curricula.
