The new informatics technologies in education debate
by Prudenciano Moreno-Moreno, Cornelio Yanez-Marquez, Olmo Alonso Moreno-Franco
International Journal of Technology Enhanced Learning (IJTEL), Vol. 1, No. 4, 2009

Abstract: The current paper is focused on the evolution and future of discussions on the application of information technologies on education and pedagogy from a conceptual perspective. The analysed debate revolves around those who back new communication and information technologies (NCITs) as a technical-functional expression of modernity (the accolatory); and the opposites (the dismissive), both post-modern – simply critics and sceptics – and anti-modern, decidedly contrary to the use of NCITs. Finally, we conclude with a proposal of conciliation of all the above positions into a new educative vision, trans-modern or meta-modern, based on the advances of the so-called 'integral theory of the whole'.
