The Degathering of Society: Implications for Technology and Educators.
Martorella, Peter H.
NASSP Bulletin, v80 n582 p34-41 Oct 1996
Aided by developing technologies, society is moving from its traditional "gathering" pattern (collecting individuals for work, recreation, voting, medical care, and shopping) to a "degathering," decentralized pattern. Alternative schooling formats, such as home schooling, are a likely consequence. Educators who fail to restructure their institutions (via emerging interactive technologies) will only increase their irrelevancy. (MLH)
