Abstract

Globalisation is a multi-dimensional and complex concept which has great impact on education reforms. Using the method of shadowing, this study collected data about the experiences of students during an entire school day in three cities of China, namely, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Chongqing. The study compared students’ and teachers’ perceptions about the concept of globalisation and their images of several other countries, as well as investigating students’ learning experiences and the students’ and teachers’ sources of information about the world. The implications for improving teaching and learning from global and international education perspectives were discussed. Copyright © 2008 James Nicholas Publishers.
