Some time ago, a question was asked: "How do you think technology will affect the teaching and practice of philosophy." The responses, while interesting, were a little too pragmatic. So, I would like to reformulate and ask a parallel question:
How do you think technology will affect teaching and learning in the 21st century? Is the technological classroom the next great revolution? Or is it all hype, rhetoric, and advertising spin? Can philosophy help guide us in sorting the useful from the useless, the time wasting, and cost incurring technologies?
Plato/Socrates was uncertain about print, Heidegger warned that in asking "the question about technology" that we are on the wrong track ...
So, what advice would philosophers give to teachers trying to negotiate the validity of the technological revolution for teaching.
