Integrating Technology Into the Curriculum

Session 2: Technology and society

warm up

"Schools are widely failing in their responsibility to teach students about digital technologies. They substitute computer use and online experience for a many-sided, socially and psychologically aware understanding of the technology." Steve Talbott (2007). Devices of the Soul, p. 136.

Reflect on the above quote…

technology and the self
Technology and the self

Marshall McLuhan:

“All media are extensions of some human faculty – psychic or social.” The Medium is the Massage (1968)

“Any extension, whether of skin, hand, or foot, affects the whole psychic and social complex.” Understanding Media (1964)

Technology and society

"At a certain stage of their development, the material productive forces of society come into conflict with … the property relations within which they have been at work hitherto. From forms of development of the forces of production these relations turn into their fetters. Then begins an epoch of social revolution. With the change of the economic foundation the entire immense superstructure is more or less rapidly transformed.“ Karl Marx (1859)
