Does Culture Matter? Understanding educational outcomes in America ‘an experience driven information society’ by Revisiting Edward T. Hall

Dr E. F. Gallion

Abstract


The problem addressed in this paper is whether or not there is a serious educational crisis in America- are American students falling behind academically or just a reflection of 21st century American information society as a low context, monochronic culture? To illustrate this problem, I have chosen to look at culture and its role in an information society – basing on the premise that information society ‘equals’ social reality – information exchange experienced by a group in a place over time. By doing so, it is determined that the problem will be located in the ‘experience’ of exchange of information. The work of Edward T. Hall will be used as support toward the problem.
