Computers, the Internet, and new media for learning (Goldman-Segall & Maxwell)

Goldman-Segall, R. & Maxwell, J. W. (2002). Computers, the Internet, and new media for learning. In W. M. Reynolds & G. E. Miller (Eds.) Handbook of Psychology. Volume 7: Educational Psychology (pp. 393-427). New York: John Wiley & Sons.

This article was a very nice summary and wrap-up of all the readings we did for our Cog Sci II class. The authors apply their Points of Viewing Theory to interpret and help the reader understand various major socio-cultural theories. Furthermore, they address each theory as it applies to the use of the Internet and emerging technologies. Ultimately, the authors contend that “a vast array of perspectives are needed to shape an educationally sound approach to learning the teaching with new media technologies.”
