"In revealing the transformatory moment of learning technology, a holistic and ongoing critique that is related to a range of socio-cultural factors is required. This critique further uncovers the social relations that frame the place of learning technology in bourgeois capitalist work and the development of the knowledge economy. This article argues that critical social theory, and the social and power relationships that it highlights, is central to the uncovering of this revelation. As a result of a holistic, or totalising, analysis based upon the political economy of technology in education, a framework that enables educators to examine its educational value is uncovered. Iterating and re-producing this framework works as a constant critique of educational practice within capitalism, and critiques deterministic or hegemonic views of technology-as-progress. As a result, this article seeks to demonstrate how critical social theory might enable educators to analyse learning technology as historically situated, and thereby to use critique to reveal and produce practical alternatives to socio-cultural problems."

The private sector knows best

The private sector knows best | AJCann | Scoop.it
"The private sector caused the credit crunch, the financial crisis, the global recession. The public sector bailed out the banks and brought the world back from the brink of ruin. When our railways were in public hands, they were shabby, unreliable and loss-making. In private hands, they still are but public money ends up in the hands of shareholders and the tickets cost vastly more. The NHS is the most efficient health service of its peers despite having, up till now, much less private sector involvement than they do. "

Man blasts off finger with shotgun while trying to remove wart

Man blasts off finger with shotgun while trying to remove wart | AJCann | Scoop.it
Sean Murphy, 38, from Doncaster, had seen his GP about the persistent problem and also tried traditional ointments and creams. Quote 'I know I could have gone to jail for up to 15 years for a firearms offence. My solicitor did a very good job. The best thing is that the wart has gone. It was giving me lot of trouble.'
