The seductions of technology
This article considers today's neo-liberal capitalism and its reliance on new digital technologies in commoditizing everything, including education. The rise in the use of digital technologies is one way that neo-liberal ideologies have entered the university, changing the relationships between faculty and students, and changing the way students learn. Some teaching technologies have proved to enhance students' learning experience, some, in my view, have not. But the ideology of the importance of new technologies in education seems to be here to stay, bringing the university increasingly into the neo-liberal world of the commoditization and marketization of everything.
