The false promises of constructivist theories of learning : a global and ecological critique by C. A Bowers( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The False Promises of Constructivist Theories of Learning: A Global and Ecological Critique, C.A. Bowers examines why constructivist-based educational reforms fail to take into account these current critical issues: the deepening ecological crisis, globalization, and undermining of the world's diverse cultural commons. Special attention is given to the enthnocentrism and Social Darwinism that created the foundations for the ideas of Dewey, Piaget, and Freire."--Jacket

14 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This landmark collection of essays by Third World activists highlights two major world changes which, they argue, have been neglected by Freire and his many followers: the Third World grass-roots cultural resistance to economic globalization, and the ecological crisis."--BOOK JACKET
Revitalizing the commons : cultural and educational sites of resistance and affirmation by C. A Bowers( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The enclosure of the cultural and environmental commons has been going on for hundreds of years, privatizing what was previously available to all members of the community. Recently, however, the process of enclosure has been accelerated by the spread of economic globalization. This timely look champions the cultural and environmental commons as sites of resistance to this current trend, and explains the nature of educational reforms that promote ecological sustainability, conservation of cultural and linguistic diversity, local democracy, and grater community self-sufficiency. Revitalizing the Commons will be of interest to scholars of environmental studies, education, and community development alike."--Jacket

3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The false promises of the digital revolution : how computers transform education, work, and international development in ways that are ecologically unsustainable by C. A Bowers( Book )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The False Promises of the Digital Revolution examines what currently goes largely unnoticed because of the many important uses of digital technologies. While many people interpret digital technologies as accelerating the global rate of progress, C.A. Bowers focuses attention on how they reinforce the deep and ecologically problematic cultural assumptions of the West: the myth of progress, the substitution of data for different cultural traditions of wisdom, the connections between print and abstract thinking, the myth of individual autonomy, the conduit view of language that hides how words (metaphors) reproduce earlier misconceptions, and a Social Darwinian justification for colonizing other cultures that is now leading to armed resistance - which, in turn, strengthens the ties between corporations, the military, and the computer science industry. The book also investigates how to understand the cultural non-neutrality of digital technologies; how print and the emphasis on data undermine awareness of the tacit information pathways between cultural and natural ecologies; and how to identify educational reforms that will contribute to a more informed public about the uses of digital technologies
