Title: Computers and school contexts
Author(s): Bruce, Bertram C.
Subject(s): Computers in education Word processing Language arts English education Context of learning Information technology innovation Computer culture
Abstract: Sociologists, philosophers, historians, technologists, and others delving into the relation between technologies and social contexts have significantly elaborated our understanding of the process whereby given technologies are constructed, interpreted, and used. This work has tended to shift the emphasis in technology studies away from technological determinism towards an integrated view of technological, sociocultural, historical, economic, and political processes. Studies of computers in school contexts exemplify the concerns within the broader study of technology and society.
