The Conundrum of Educational Provision and the Application of Performativity and Technology in Papua New Guinea.
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v32 n1 p103-17 Apr 2000
Heidegger's philosophy of technology demonstrates how technology acts as an agent of performativity within the school system serving the interests of the state and global economy. Papua New Guinea provides an example of how performativity and technology have become entrenched in a non-Western developing nation, usurped traditional education, and created paradoxical attitudes toward academic and vocational education.
