Title:Speaking the Unspeakable About 21st Century Technologies
Author(s):Bruce, Bertram C.
Writing Studies

Abstract:The articles in this section are not content to remain in the realm of technique. This, despite the fact that I suspect none of the authors would easily dismiss Ellul’s assertion that it is vain to pretend that “the monolithic technical world that is coming to be...can be checked or guided” (1973, p. 428). But they shift the issues from technical to ethical. They ask different questions, such as...What do we want students to learn? How can we use new technologies? How should we? Why should we? What will change when we do? Do we want those changes? What do they mean for us, our students, society? What is fair? What kind of society do we want to live in? And, perhaps ultimately, who do we want to become?
