Curriculum Change and Technology.
Postman, Neil
Because of the rate of change today due to the explosion of knowledge, all formal schooling in America, without exception, is more damaging to children than beneficial. What is needed is a program which uses the natural curiosity, intelligence, energy, and idealism of students in a context which permits both them and their community to change. The community itself should become a laboratory for the inquiries of students, and the school should be equipped with 20th and 21st century media to allow the students to study "Media Ecology", or how media of communication affect human perception.
