Digital Detachment PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Digital Detachment free pdf The digital revolution is changing the world in ecologically unsustainable ways: (1) it increases the economic and political power of the elites controlling and interpreting the data- (2) it is based on the deep assumptions of market liberalism that do not recognize environmental limits- (3) it undermines face-to-face and context-specific forms of knowledge- (4) it undermines awareness of the metaphorical nature of language- (5) its promoters are driven by the myth of progress and thus ignore important cultural traditions of the cultural commons that are being lost- and (6) it both by-passes the democratic process a and colonizes other cultures. This book provides an in-depth examination of these phenomena and connects them to questions of educational reform in the US and beyond.
