The Diversity Myth
Friday, January 1, 1999
Educators using the Internet to teach cultural diversity may encounter trouble achieving that objective. The author reflects on projects that have brought students from different geographic regions together via the Internet. These projects often reveal more similarities in students' lives than differences because of the common assumptions shared by the global techno-culture of the wired world. Truly alternative worldviews are most likely to be found in non-technological societies.
