Technology and the Moral Sense: Re-Wiring Moral Education.
Ryan, Francis J.; Sweeder, John J.; Bednar, Maryanne R.
This paper presents a brief synopsis of recent trends in moral education and suggests ways in which a blending of idea and product technologies can promote the development of four specific moral sentiments: sympathy, duty, fairness, and self-control. Four integrated strategies that teacher educators can use to help preservice and inservice teachers "plug into" these moral sentiments are described: (1) virtual gatherings--a form of telecommunication activity meant to bring together participants from different geographic locations and time zones; (2) social action projects--real world contexts for humanitarian, action-oriented telecommunications activities; (3) careful selection and re-purposing of computer courseware; and (4) video production projects.
