Administering knowledge

Block 3, Week 17, Activity 6: Brabazon (2001)

1. What is Barbizon’s view of university management imperatives and the use of new technologies?

Technology is used as a means of keeping costs down and the students satisfied.

2. Brabazon discusses literacy and cultural capital in the context of PowerPoint. What is your view of the impact of new technologies on literacy and access to cultural resources?

Technology makes it much easier for both teachers and students to input and access information. However, this is at the expense, perhaps, of students in particular becoming dependent on using technology to do so. The description of students queuing to use a computer for research rather than having immediate access to the index cards rather says it all. No matter what else students might use technology for in their learning, they will most definitely use it to prepare.
