Ninth DATC Junto

Meeting Logistics: Tue, 2 January 2007; UMC 404

Shifting gears, let's take a look at a reading that examines the history of educational technology in American classrooms. The book, entitled BookEnds: The Changing Media Environment of American Classrooms, was written by Margaret Cassidy from Adelphia University.

I've chosen three chapters in the book ("Introduction", "Common Themes", and "Afterword") that I think will give us a good sense of Cassidy's main points. There are between 40 and 50 pages, so I apologize in advance. You'll need permission to access these readings (CULogin and Identikey), and if for some reason that doesn't do the trick, send me an email.

If you want to further examine her findings, the complete text is available at Norlin, unless of course one your colleagues has checked it out.
