Chapter 4: Beyond cybernation: technology and teaching in doctoral educational leadership

Stephanie J. Blackmon


This chapter focuses specifically on three currently used technologies in doctoral educational leadership classrooms: social media, blogs and virtual worlds. A major premise of this chapter is that the relationship between technology and its users is dialogical. Furthermore, these exchanges are value laden. Therefore, the examples of technology provided in this chapter will move beyond cybernation and not only address the complex exchange that occurs when educational leadership instructors and students employ various technologies (the unidirectional relationship of user to technology), but also address ways to mitigate that complex exchange.
