Not "Just a Tool': A Triadic Model of Technological Non-Neutrality
Rose, Ellen
Educational Technology, v52 n1 p17-21 Jan-Feb 2012
The author describes the three bases upon which she rejects the assumption that a technology and its use are neutral: every technology predisposes a certain use; shapes habits of mind and social organizations; and is the outcome of deliberate choices made by individuals and societies. She then proposes a "triadic model" of technological non-neutrality which integrates these three points, and offers a set of critical questions to which the model gives rise.
