Change, trends and issues in education are driven by globalization and globalization is driven by technology. The biggest trends in education is the introduction of computer technology and the rapid rate of innovation. The issue is technology has mandated continuous education in the work place and an exploitation of labor. The global perspective on continuing education is to know more, and on exploitation of labor, is to do more work. Knowing and doing more is a prerequisite to employment, while technology is a prerequisite to knowing and doing more. Although education can change the landscape of the workforce, it is outpaced by the changes of technology. Education has, by default, been charged with keeping up with the exploitation of labor through basic education, vocational training, and life skills and knowledge that have broad tendencies dynamically changing with socio-economic development.
