Whiteford & Barns (2002). Te Ao Hurihuri.

“Maori position themselves in time and space by locating their ancestors in time (by event) and relating themselves to that ancestor. … To present one’s identity in Maori society is first to establish a relationship between oneself and one’s ancestors (time), and second, to locate that ancestor geographically in the landscape (space). Time and space, then, are fundamental components of Maori identity.” (p 214)

Oztok (2014). The Hidden Curriculum of Online Learning.

“… online learning environments can reproduce inequitable learning conditions when the context requires certain individuals to assimilate mainstream beliefs and values at the expense of their own identities. Since identifications have certain social and political consequences by enabling or constraining individuals’ access to educational resources, individuals may try to be identified in line with culturally-hegemonic perspectives in order to gain or secure their access to educational resources or to legitimize their learning experiences.” (p ii-iii)

Hlynka & Yeaman (1992). Postmodern Educational Technology.

“Producing information is a major economic force that ties postmodern theory to educational technology. … The field of educational technology was built on the positivist, modernist search for a best medium towards universal communication and the teaching of predetermined behavior and thinking patterns. … The past emphasis of educational technology on automated delivery systems favors the biases of the industrial, scientific, modern era.” (p 1)

Yeaman (1994). Deconstruction and Visuals: Is This a Telephone?

“The deception here is … in blindly accepting that achieving technological imaginings is always desirable. … The analogy of human activities to machine processes seduces intellect. According to the equipment-minded definition, understanding is not necessary for communication, only the transmission and reception of data. This suggests that meaning is unequivocable, plain, and undeniable; that communication is principally one way; that it is something people should do to other people because there are leaders who have voice and followers who hear and obey; and that these cultural conventions are the natural state.” (p 318)
