The Politics of Technological Literacy.
Petrina, Stephen
International Journal of Technology and Design Education, v10 n2 p181-206 2000
Situates technological literacy in its ideological context of competitive supremacy and conservative politics. In opposition to a "neutral" notion of this construct, negotiates a turn toward "critical" technological literacy, which represents an overtly political turn toward overcoming forms of power that sustain inequities in the built world. Suggests that technology educators will have to resituate their practice within cultural studies. (Contains 110 references.) (Author/AEF)
