Educational Technology: A Critical Perspective.
Holloway, Robert E.
This document reviews writings and studies that raise questions and identify issues about the use of technology in education to help in the development of clear statements of the purposes of educational technology, education, and the needs of society. The collection of ideas, commentary, and discussion reviews a wide range of viewpoints held by both critics and advocates of technology. A variety of views represent the way things are done as well as the tools and machines used in the process. The emphasis is on the context, especially social and economic forces, that shape decisions about technology in education. This review is designed to help the reader frame balanced and constructive responses to technology-related issues and questions, and to encourage initiative in decision-making regarding the adaptation of technology for education. The table of contents and index help identify significant viewpoints represented in the review, and an extensive bibliography is included. (THC)
