The Teacher as Skilled Generalist: Preserving Humanist Traditions in an Age of Technological Utopianism.
Burniske, R. W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v81 n2 p121-22,124,126 Oct 1999

The greatest challenge is teaching students to think in holistic terms. Students must look beyond telecomputing to explore ideas and discover how technology itself is shaping their thoughts. (MLH)
