Abstract

This study was undertaken to better understand the discourse surrounding K-12 instructional technologies as represented in published articles of three trade publications whose target audience is educational practitioners. The study additionally sought to test the viability of an analytical framework inspired by Michel Foucault's technologies of the self. Two hundred and thirty-seven articles published in three trade periodicals (Education Week, Learning & Leading with Technology, and The School Administrator) over a two-year sample period were analyzed using NVIVO, a qualitative data analysis software product from QSR, International.
