In a paper continuing this critical theme, Martin Oliver discusses the concept of technological determinism in educational technology research and describes four theoretical perspectives that provide different lens or alternative perspectives on the relationship between learning and technology--namely, activity theory, communities of practice, actor–network theory, and the social construction of technology.

Technological determinism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Technological determinism is a reductionist theory that presumes that a society's technology drives the development of its social structure and cultural values. The term is believed to have been coined by Thorstein Veblen (1857–1929), an American sociologist. The most radical technological determinist in the United States in the twentieth century was most likely Clarence Ayres who was a follower of Thorstein Veblen and John Dewey. William Ogburn was also known for his radical technological determinism.

The term is believed to have been coined by Thorstein Veblen (1857–1929), an American. Veblen's contemporary, popular historian Charles A. Beard, provided this apt determinist image, "Technology marches in seven-league boots from one ruthless, revolutionary conquest to another, tearing down old factories and industries, flinging up new processes with terrifying rapidity."[1]

Technological determinism seeks to show technical developments, media, or technology as a whole, as the key mover in history and social change.[2]

"Instead of a part of human activity, technological determinism sees technology as the basis for all activity" @mspro http://t.co/4hS26idPm3
