Abstract

This paper proposes ways of helping technology resistant (TR) students in terms of Carl Rogers' theories. In this view, students are motivated by the single, unitary motive of actualizing- maintaining or enhancing their lives to their fullest potential. Resistance to technology is defined in terms of incongruence among the Real Self, the Ideal Self, and the technological task to be learned. Suggestions using Rogerian principles are given to assist educators in working with technology resistant students.
