In Canada, both provincial and federal governments embraced educational techno-positivism with enthusiasm. However, a few critics pointed out that most of the enthusiasm for technology in the classroom came from dubious sources, including corporations that were (and still are) in pursuit of the almost unmeasurable revenue stream generated by technology sales to the education sector. Further, most conversations about technology in the schools focused on what was possible rather than what was desirable--a shift that favored those whose primary interest was technology, not kids. In this article, the author provides her views on computer use in classroom. (Contains 8 notes.)
