Human Thought, Cyberspace, and Pedagogy

To add a paper, Login.

The growth of human consciousness (awareness) has run parallel to the growth in the technology of communication. The recent conflict in academe, which pits the teaching of traditional, or canonical, literature against the teaching of non-traditional, or non-canonical, literature can be seen as a product of the development of awareness. Based on a study of the past, the change to a new pedagogy may be seen as inevitable, especially in the light of our changing technology, which itself may be seen as the means by which we are able to change our way of thinking.
