Abstract

This overview of the use of educational technology in peace education discusses three questions: (1) how educational technology may be applied to increase world understanding and reduce intergroup tensions; (2) what strategies, within what contexts, have proven effective in integrating the study of peace across the curriculum; and (3) how motivated individuals might make use of leading edge technologies to enhance their voices in the global conversation on the future. Terms are defined and 10 strategies for using technology in peace education are presented. These strategies address the following topics: (1) simulations to practice conflict resolution; (2) teaming across curriculum through technology; (3) incorporating information technologies to study peace; (4) developing databases on global themes; (5) creating software on peace through cooperative learning; (6) initiating local electronic conferences and support groups; (7) linking students to national and international classrooms; (8) participating in a Kids-92 Newsletter's global conference; (9) supplementing software to widen perspectives; and (10) projecting 21st century curriculum themes. Information is then provided on 184 conferences that were listed for the keyword "peace" in the EcoNet database; each listing includes a brief description, the name of the sponsor, contacts, and keywords.
