Academic Duty by Donald Y. Kennedy
Architect for Learning Architect for Learning by Philip J. Palin, Kari Sandhaas

This is a book about the future of education. If you are an educator who uses the Internet, "Architect for Learning" will remind you of what you already know and suggest how to adapt it to the potential of the network. If you are a New Media professional, this book will outline how design skills and technical knowledge can be used to propel a passion for learning. Principles and practical examples demonstrate how classical philosophy and electronic gaming are allies in developing compelling environments in which each learner can discover purpose and meaning.

Beginning with a philosophy of education, then scanning cognitive theories and psychology, "Architect for Learning" points the way to how the network can be a powerful tool for individualizing education. An accompanying multimedia CD-ROM provides a helpful overview and examples of key concepts which are more deeply engaged throughout the book.

Whether the educational potential of the network is achieved or not will depend largely on a genesis generation of network based learning architects. This new profession is emerging spontaneously in response to opportunity and demand. This book is a primer on how the lessons of a few millenia of human experience might best be applied to a new millenia of learning.

bulletKnowledge and Violence
bulletMax Horkheimer and Education

Excerpt from "Knowledge and Violence":

Knowledge is inseparable from processes of its production, re-production, representation, distribution, reception and realization. At the same time, it also should not be disconnected from the question of the legitimization of its truth-value.

The control of knowledge, of its legitimization, its representation, and its distribution determines the constitution of normalizing education. The inner goal of any education is normalization of the subject in the service of re-producing the hegemonic social-cultural order and its realm of self-evidence. Within this setting the legitimization of knowledge as well as the marginalization of knowledge of the Other and her legitimization apparatuses is a precondition for social control, economic productivity, and well-protected cultural borders. Traditionally the protection of these borders was entrusted to educators, teachers, intellectuals and administrators, who were expected to demarcate and preserve culture from nature, true from false, moral from immoral, nice from nasty, and good from evil...

Center for Dewey Studies

The Center for Dewey Studies at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale was established in 1961 as the "Dewey Project." In the course of collecting and editing Dewey's works, the Center amassed a wealth of source materials for the study of America's quintessential philosopher-educator, John Dewey.
