Overview
This book revisits current technocentric educational reform policy and examines the meaning of educational reform within the context of a technological society and globalized market economy. Having colonized the politics of educational reform, technocentrism has narrowed the social space of educational reform discourse by invalidating alternative social visions germane to the tradition of social justice and the development of a civic society. This book interrogates current technocentric discourse through the voices of educators who engage in the practice of -questioning technology- and raises significant issues regarding the dominance of a technology-based reform agenda, techno-utopianism as a dominant social vision, and the positioning of teachers within school cultures reconfigured by control technologies and performity. Educators need to create a deliberative approach to technology adoption, for only by assuming a more questioning stance toward the adoption of technological innovations can we hope to avoid technological determinism and take responsibility for the consequences of our inventions."
