Developmental Stages in School Computer Use: Neither Marx Nor Piaget.
Lengel, James G.
Social Education, v51 n1 p52-53 Jan 1987
Describes three stages encountered by schools in efforts to join computer revolution, using developmental theories of Marx and Piaget. Typically use of computers begins by being province of one knowledgeable teacher, then moves to diffusion and subsequent disillusionment. Argues that transition directly to final tool-use stage may be best way for social studies to enter information age. (JDH)
