JIMENEZ, Rafael Vidal. Education, power and the market: a critical deconstruction of the disciplining effects of information and communication technologies upon the new "Spectacle School". Interface (Botucatu) [online]. 2005, vol.9, n.18, pp.475-488. ISSN 1807-5762.

Without denying the unquestionable methodological contributions of the new Information and Communication Technologies to the adaptation of teaching methods to the historical changes that are under way, this article encourages self-critical reflection on the possible socio-cognitive consequences of the exaggerated use of these technologies. Basically, it attempts to analyze how this could lead to a triumph of a new aphasic culture: a culture without words, in which the deceptive "hyperrealism" of the ubiquitous Image implies in an iconocratic and iconophagical destruction of verbal language as a mediator, not only of the teaching-learning process, but also of the student-subject relationship with himself and with others. Based on the process of responsibly facing up to post-modern circumstances, what is under discussion here is the rising use of a kind of education spectacle, of education reduced to a mere (consumerist) Imitation of itself, and the loss of words as a vehicle for thought capable of signaling distances with respect to the normalizing diagrams of the new (Disciplinary) Capitalism of Networks and the (Global) Culture of Fear.

Palabras clave : education; technology; communication.
