Computers, Technology, and Society by June Jamrich Parsons and Dan Oja

I contributed a chapter to this book in 1997. June Jamrich Parsons and Dan Oja were the lead authors of Course Technology’s New Perspectives on Computer Concepts series. A member of the editorial team on the series knew I was interested in educational applications of the World Wide Web and hired me to develop student companion websites for the series. Eventually, that led to writing a chapter for Computers, Technology, and Society. While researching the chapter, I learned that school schedules were designed to mesh with the agricultural work cycle. Why we organize school schedules around agriculture when most people work in other fields continues to baffle me.
