Education, Technology and Totalitarianism.
van der Laan, James M.
Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, v17 n5-6 p236-48 1997
The purpose of education through the ages has been to open up paths to freedom, yet the educational community has embraced technology--specifically computer technology--as the definitive and only mandate for teaching and learning as a result of emphasis on technique. Compares computer technology to a totalitarian regime which controls rather than liberates. Contains 36 references. (PVD)
