DescriptionThe pressures, from outside and inside education to digitize, to computerise, and 'to go online' continue to increase in pace. The rhetoric surrounding such pressures are often argued from a standpoint that positions technology as a 'neutral tool', a tool that will help make work more efficient and effective. The central thesis of this presentation is that technology is best understood as fundamentally non-neutral and that various technological applications privilege certain ways of doing things, and exclude or restrict other ways. And further, that technology not only can influence but can have a transformative effect on what the technology is used for, and on the work practices of those that use it. Technology is often viewed for what it provides and seldom for what it takes away or limits. This presentation aims to draw attention to practices and changes in work practices in education, brought about, in part, or in whole, by the use of the new communication and information technologies. In order to draw attention to these changed practices, the structure, in this presentation, has been organised under four broad categories, namely: new pedagogical opportunities, changed practices, technology neutrality, and unintended consequences. The first half hour of the seminar will be for the initial presentation, the remainder of the seminar will be for questions and answers and general discussion.
