A discourse of benefit: Technology and school reform in the USA
Journal of Information Technology for Teacher Education
This paper suggests that the subject of school reform and technology in education needs to be considered as a discourse that needs to be ‘unpacked’ and analyzed from a social, historical, and cultural perspective. Unpacking the historical and current interests in educational reform in light of information and communication technologies is no simple matter. There are two basic challenges. First, we need to analyze the language of change and the context of school reform. Second, the discourse of school reform needs to placed within a context of history and politicaltheory. In the end the paper asks the reader to consider who the ideological ‘we’ is when we talk about education and technology. © 1996 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
