Highly modernized, automated, data-driven, and technologically
advanced – these best describe our society nowadays, as
evidenced by how information could be transferred or shared
quickly. The different areas of society have been influenced
tremendously such as communication, economics, industry, health,
and the environment. Despite our gains due to the growing
development of information technology, the rapid upgrade of
information also has disadvantages.
The Information Age is considered a historical period in the 21st
century. Characterized by the rapid shift from traditional industry, it
is also called the computer age, the digital age, and the new media
age. It is marked by a very growth in communication and
information technology. This age holds a significant influence on
educators and learners.
This invention of the computer which gave people access to
information with the touch of a button. The internet has turned
society into homebodies and individuals who do everything from
the comfort of their homes. People do their tasks only such as
shopping, paying bills, working, education, entertainment, and
ordering food.
HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT
It began around the 1970s and still going on today. This era brought
about a time period in which people could access information and
knowledge easily. As in the field of literature, the Renaissance
influenced this age by creating the idea and inventions that led to
modern ones.
The information age also referred to people, information, and
societies that chronicle the birth and growth of electronic
information from ancient times to Samuel Morse’s invention of the
telegraph in the 1890s through the development of the telephone,
the radio, television, and computers. (http.//www/tcf.va.edu/az/thistory.outline.htm).
There are four periods of the Information Age, namely:
•Pre-Mechanical – 3,00 BC 1450 A.D.
•Mechanical – 1450-1840
•Electro-Mechanical – 1840-1940
•Electronic/Information – 1940 – presents
Some pioneers who belonged to these periods were Blaire Pascal, Alexander Graham Bell, Steven Wozmak,
Steven Jobs, Bill Gates.
Personal computers have become widespread by the end of the
1980s. They can be connected to local or national networks.
Through a device called the modern, individual users could list their
computers to a wealth of information using conventional phone
lines.
The internet was developed during the 1970s. In the early days, it
was used mainly by scientists to communicate with other
scientists. At this time, the internet users’ problem was speed. The
development of the fiber optic hastened the rate of sending
messages.
In the 1990s, the world wide web was developed mainly for
commercial purposes. New services were created to sell products.
Now, airline tickets, hotel reservations, books, and even cars and
houses can be purchased online. Colleges and universities would
post research data on the internet so students could find valuable
information without leaving their homes.
Claide Shannon is regarded as the Father of the Information Age.
