The Sense of Technological Determinism [ATMI paper]

Update: the paper I presented has been published as a co-authored chapter:

Ruthmann, S.A., Tobias, E. S., Randles, C., & Thibeault, M. D. (2015). Is it the technology? Challenging technological determinism in music education. In C. Randles (Ed.), Music education: Navigating the future (pp. 122–138). New York, NY: Routledge. [Amazon and my section is derived from this publicly available paper.]

I’m delighted to be taking part in “Is it the technology? Challenging technological determinism in music education,” at the ATMI/CMS/NASM conference (November 16, 2012).

Here’s the short paper I’ll present, “The Sense of Technological Determinism.” In it, I make a case that we have to understand how determinism makes sense in order to better confront these accounts, and close with some recent scholarship that better accounts for changes that occur in concert with technology. The paper will likely end up edited and expanded and included in something somewhere, so feedback is welcome.
