Greetings From Guy
We are being bombarded with articles, blogs and tweets about technology and how it is changing education. The talk is of MOOCs, flipped classrooms, online degree programs, blended or hybrid on-line/face-to-face programs, etc., etc. Every business school in the industrial countries and many in the developing world are experimenting. Other education providers are by-passing traditional business schools altogether.
Most of the discussion is about schools and other providers serving students in advanced industrial countries. While discussants assume in a general way that technology will greatly benefit students in developing countries, relatively little has been said about differences between advanced and developing markets. In fact the differences are formidable.
