Description In 2015 the global education market was estimated $4.9 (USD) trillion. It is not surprising that technology giants, private enterprises and publishing houses lobby aggressively to shape education policy so that they can conveniently sell their products and services. In this talk I will share some examples from my work with Education International, the global education union federation on how this takes shape at the global and national level (e.g., copyrights, scripted lessons, standardisation etc.). As a way forward I would also like to invite the conference participants to join me in a workshop to discuss some of these aspects bringing together people working or interested in education & technology.
