How Do You Keep 'Em down on the Farm after They've Seen Technology? The Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture
International Journal of Instructional Media, v31 n4 p325 Fall 2004
In an age dominated by technology, teachers are challenged as never before to help students understand the deep connections they share with people from earlier times and nowhere is this more dramatically revealed than in basic farm life. This article discusses the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture and describes technology use that connects one to the past and shows the links between food, farm and table. As a counterweight to the developments of technology, the Center shows clearly how farming is essential to the quality of life, how animals must be cared for to produce food, and how proper practices can sustain a healthful environment for the local and global communities.
