Description

We examine media & technological determinism in the context of educational technology. We
argue that educational technologists cannot take a ‘deterministic stance’ & should practice ethics
founded on an ecumenical view of theory & technology. Taking a cue from social cognitive
theory, senior educational technologists should also visibly engage in reflective practice leading
to ethical outcomes to motivate less senior members of the profession to do likewise. We note
the problem that many senior educational technologists are aligned with a particular theory
and/or technology, which has helped them to secure their position. They will need to change
their outlook in order to address these goals & this is very hard for senior practioners to do. We
suggest that action learning might offer a supportive route to personal transformation.
