Cyberspace: A New Frontier for Peace Education.
Hinitz, Blythe F.; Stomfay-Stitz, Aline M.
This paper explores four dimensions of telecommunications as resources for peace education: (1) advocacy for special issues or concerns as a social action component; (2) enhancement for teaching peace education and conflict resolution; (3) links in cyberspace as an added dimension for partnerships and collaborative projects; and (4) expansion of expertise through technology and collegial contacts in other global centers. Evidence collected from several disciplines in a global search for projects, processes, and products could offer a blueprint for action for those in peace education. Survey results are shared on the attitudes of 50 peace educators throughout the world on the potential of telecommunications. (EH)
