We fail to remember what went before--whether the projects were successes or failures. This article explores why this might be, why in particular we fail to profit from failures, and what steps we might take to help…

Vanderburg, Willem H. – Educational Technology, 2012
This article shows that technological neutrality, determinism, and autonomy correspond to parts of a spectrum of possible historical relations between societies and their technologies.

Borgmann, Albert – Educational Technology, 2012
Technology, thought of as the ensemble of utilities and devices and of their impact on our lives, proceeds in steps, each of which seems plausible. This kind of development also encourages the view that technology is value-neutral. It always can be used both for good and ill, and we decide how to use it. The production of food and the development…

The digital revolution is transforming the ways in which knowledge and culture are produced, accessed, and, most of all, created and re-created.

Hlynka, Denis – Educational Technology, 2012
Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980) is most remembered for his statement "The medium is the message," an aphorism that embraces the theme of this issue of "Educational Technology." McLuhan showed as never before the hidden biases within all technologies. Today, 100 years after his birth, his laws of media and perceptive aphorisms…
