Education In Network Society.

I have decided to select an article from the University of British Columbia researcher, Pam Gill. This section of reading addresses the different, important sections in the development and rise of social networking and how it has become hugely integrated into our social lives from the latter part of the twentieth century. It gives us the information that although networking society is now almost totally globalised, that we’re all able to have our own individualised experience when online through the dissemination of words, sound and pictures. Pam Gill also writes a sections on the ‘new technology paradigm’, the importance of educational implications, and ‘the dangers of transformations in the networking society’ where he addresses, what he feels, the different pros and cons of the rapidly growing network and informational based age. Gill makes statements of how he believes society should be moving with this technological innovation or ‘revolution’ as he likes to put it, and how this could purpose innovation within the educational sector, helping anyone in education to access knowledge through this ever-expanding network society. That interaction with a blog or online post gives a much better response from the student and how the implication of online media into schools has encouraged productivity and connectivity. Overall This section of writing is about the importance of our knowledge in the networking society, and how we need to expand and learn as fast as we are producing new technology and the implications of this technological surge on education and how it will help with the interaction of education in our schools and universities.

Read it and let me know what your interpretation was!
