Education and Values: Interface on the Internet


Dr. Marc Marenco

"The Internet and related cyber-technology is here and here to stay. I do not think we have yet grasped the impact that this ubiquitous phenomenon is having on our collective self-understanding. As the Internet permeates our practice it also permeates our consciousness. Many of us wonder how the moral dimension of human experience will be affected by life 'online.' I am delighted to be a part of the Berglund Institute as we sustain the conversation about the new technology and its relation to the deep purpose of education."

Dr. Mark Bailey

"The Internet is rapidly transforming the manner in which individuals communicate, learn, and live their lives. These changes have the potential to significantly alter the structure of educational institutions as well as to fundamentally reshape conceptions of community and society. The physical and political boundaries that have traditionally limited educational and social discourse are being stripped away, creating the potential for many exciting, as well as potentially problematic and unforeseen consequences."
