Technological Alternatives in Learning.
Christ, Frank L.
Facilitation of learning depends upon a synergistic relationship among administrators, instructors, and learners, each of whom responds to educational technology in one or more of the following alternative ways: (1) he is ignorant of technology; (2) he ignores technology; (3) he acknowledges the existence of technology but condemns it as mechanistic and inhumane; (4) he acknowledges the existence of technology, recognizes its potential, but avoids it as mysterious, complex, and unmanageable; (5) he accepts and uses technology uncritically; (6) he accepts and uses technology critically, imaginatively, and accountably; (7) he accepts, uses, and assists others in using technology critically, imaginatively, and accountably; or (8) he develops and improves technology. Exercising the more positive alternatives in educational technology can result in helping learners to learn more in less time with greater ease and confidence. (TO)
