Abstract: Silicon Valley is seeking to reform education in its own image, as part of a ‘techno-economic revolution’ that is spreading globally. This essay provides an original analysis of how Silicon Valley is seeking to reproduce its centrality to the techno-economic revolution through technology-based reformatory efforts in education. In so doing, it is becoming a major influence in corporate education reform, seeking to take its new pedagogic practices, technical platforms and economic models to the reform of state education at massive scale.
