Societal Impacts of Computers

An OWIKIT first! A resource for secondary school and college computer teachers who try to help students understand complex value conflicts and ethical choices associated with electronic communications. The "National Educational Technology in Education (ISTE), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Education, lists as one of six foundation standards the need for students to "understand the ethical, cultural, and societal issues related to technology." "Societal Impacts of Computerization" provides resources to address this important, but often neglected, curriculum goal. It synthesizes recent scholarship in socio-technology into easy to understand concepts and provides activities that promote critical thinking and personal engagement. A user site license allows teachers to photocopy or electronically post the resource on a local area network. Over 40 master pages and a CD that is PC or MAC compatible. Flexible, non-sequential curriculum format.
