Information Technology and Knowledge: The Non-Neutrality of Content-Specific Educational Software.
Agalionos, Angelos; Cope, Peter
Journal of Education Policy, v9 n1 p35-45 Jan-Mar 1994
A content analysis of 21 elementary and secondary software programs reveals the nonneutrality of educational software. The software is heavily biased and exposes pupils to dominant explanations, values, beliefs, assumptions, and ideologies that are projected as objective and legitimate. Content-specific software is deeply enmeshed in cultural politics and is a potential vehicle for social control. (Contains 15 references.) (MLH)
