Teching Down without Copping Out: Service-Learning as a Counter to Technological Elitism.
Schwartzman, Roy
Service-learning places students and educational institutions in direct contact with surrounding communities, teaches them greater appreciation for persons of different social privileges, and helps them to recognize the necessity of social intervention in distributing the benefits of democracy. Service-learning is inherently democratizing by combating the separation of higher education from its beneficiaries, and by avoiding the social stratification that new technologies can bring. Including a service component in education can offset the individualistic focus of technologized learning and encourages students to take responsibility for how they and their classmates learn. Contains 5 references. (EF)
