New Paradigms For Collaboration & Knowledge Sharing


Published on

The world of social interaction, fuelled by the plethora of social media tools, has opened up new opportunities to learn and share. Classroom training is no longer an essential part of learning and development. We can now tap into the collective wisdom of peers and experts as and when we need. Skilling ourselves for a challenging and volatile environment is a personal responsibility - we can't rely on others, including the people/organisations we work for.

  • Not really - Technological determinism has been defined as an approach that identifies technology, or technological advances, as the central causal element in processes of social change (Croteau and Hoynes). As a technology is stabilized, its design tends to dictate users' behaviors, consequently diminishing human agency. (Wikipediia).

    I'm suggesting that technology can influence behaviours, but that we should respect and encourage personal choice and not to deliver homoginized or corporate solutions that cater for the majority at the expense of individual specialism.
