The Computer as Doorstop: Technology as Disempowerment.
Callister, Thomas A., Jr.; Dunne, Faith
Phi Delta Kappan, v74 n4 p324-26 Dec 1992
Efforts to replace teachers with technology have uniformly failed. Machines are only tools. Good classroom tools extend the teacher's power to create a rich learning environment. If the teacher perceives the tool as master or misconstrues its use, its potential will never be realized. Strategies for computer use must focus on purpose and derive from teachers themselves.
