Descending into the Maelstrom of the 21st Century with Marshall McLuhan.
Campbell, Robert J.
Educational Technology, v40 n5 p18-27 Sep-Oct 2000
To explicate Marshall McLuhan's thinking, three concepts germane to his views on technology are introduced: technology as an extension of man; visual and acoustical space; and the laws of media. The goal is to engender a deeper appreciation of McLuhan to help educators and communication specialists understand how media (technology) can be used to prepare individuals for the technologically oriented environment of the 21st century.
