White, James A.; Purdom, Daniel M.
Educational Technology Review, n6 p5-9 Fall 1996
Reviews the history of instructional technology. Describes how computers and related technologies can be viewed through four conflicting perspectives on curriculum: (1) academic rationalism; (2) self-actualization; (3) social relevance; and (4) development of cognitive processes. Identifies concerns each conception has about certain uses of technology and discusses compatible uses of technology. (AEF)
