Humanizing Technology: Perspectives and Prospectus.
Sanford, Monard G.
Educational media and technology are valuable supplements to books in classroom instruction, and the range of vicarious experience they can provide is itself humanizing. However, technology will not become natural or stimulating for students until it takes its place as a normal part of the classroom. The concerns which people have about technology can be summed up in a series of questions: 1) Are there potential dangers in a society where technological media dominate the school and outside school? 2) What will happen to literacy as our population comes to depend more and more on visual communication? 3) What is the intrinsic role of the technological media? 4) Will the newer technological media become basic rather than supplemental in our schools? 5) Who will be the managers of educational media and what will their role be?
