MY OWN PRESENTATION

This week I have a presentation due for my module CYBERSOCIETY, here I have utilized my politics knowledge from my degree  and mixed in a little sociological theory.

 

It takes on how new technology and new communication tools have changed the face of the world through political ideologies.

This presentation gives me a chance to show the knowledge I have gained through 3 years of my Degree and how I have transferred these skills into my Postgraduate year.

My curiosity with the way the world is changing and how Facebook and Twitter has changed the way people voice their opinion has given me the confidence to proclaim my views on certain subjects.

Looking back 4 years ago I would never had thought I would be able to voice these opinions. Knowledge does give a power, using it wisely  is the task.

People feel strongly about their views, you have to respect them views in order to learn from them and make your own. It could be blogging about books and  discussing various reasons why Hilary Mantel  should of won the Man Booker Prize again, or you could be voicing your opinions which may just change a pro life voter to a pro choice voter.

Facebook and Twitter, gives people this power to engage the WORLD in debates like above, however the power really lies in the mask it gives  to the voice,  some people choose  not  to show their religious views or class status or ethnicity especially via Twitter.

Through using this Blog it has given me a confidence in writing my ideas and being able to share these with my peers is a major stepping stone in my life, it has given the confidence to pursue a new blog with my own ideas after this semester.

HERE IS TO CHANGE!

OH DID I TELL YOU?

COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS EVERYONE!

Or was that Organisation?
Basic communication is vital for anything to work, whether it’s emailing 1 person a quick question about a group project, and then 2 people in the group having a email chat and come up with loads of ideas and then the next meeting the other group members are looking at you like you have ten heads.

Communication can break down very quickly and very easily which is the reason you constantly have to keep it a priority.
If you don’t or you think you don’t need to, small little nasty things can creep out of it.
If you don’t communicate with your colleagues because you feel there is no need, what happens if one day you need help?
I don’t think they would be as forth coming as you would like…

Also the idea of non-communication within a academic setting or work setting is one of isolation.

It can also have a very negative effect on you, many people might think:

“AH LOOK HER OVER THERE, THINKING SHE IS THE QUEEN BEE, WITH ALL HER INFORMATION”

“I’M NOT GOING TELL HER THAT THE PROJECT HAS BEEN MOVED FORWARD, LET HER SWEAT”

People can also be on the other end of the scale and tell you everything they know thinking it will help, and people will also feel the same way!

Communication incorporates many different elements of behavior, however it is vital for you to communicate effectively if you and the work you are producing is going to succeed .

The aspect that  Alshare  2011 focused on was both educator and student, and how many barriers can hinder the operations of communication in very simple ways, that is in the perspective of a student approaching a educator for information.

Even as a Mature Student, approaching my tutor who was of a similar age was the  most nerve racking thing I think I have ever done, WHY, he knew more about the topic than I did!

That’s why he was the tutor and I thee student!

This weeks readings reflect change and innovation in the information professional, it brings with it new ideas and challenges and bright shiny mornings…if you like mornings that is!
Sorry to be a drag!
Innovation and change management is needed in every establishment I understand that, I feel the implementing of this mindset if a tough one to crack with employees.
It is the culture and behaviour that is within the organisation that will fuel these new ideas and help each other seek new ways to develop skills.
I really understood how Ripley linked innovation to an entrepreneur and how he translated the word into people who “undertook” a risk. And it is all these new ideas and changes that are undertaken are potential risks to the organisation, and when they fail they can destroy an organisation, however if these new ideas are not introduced and people do not challenge each other the establishment will go stale and rotten.
Can this drive be achieved in everyone????
It takes a lot of positive thinking and encouragement,
I for one would take a lot of coaxing in order to gain this mindset and change my perspective of becoming an innovator or a entrepreneur, call me lazy if you wish, but my brain does not work like this or maybe I am not brave enough!
It reminds me of a advertising company who night and day reinvent these slogans and ways to rebrand the same brand…what is the bloody point just because you changed the label is not going to make people buy it it still tastes horrible!
I can see change and innovation going hand in hand, change will always happen in this bright new shiny world, and innovation will only happen if these beliefs and visions have been incorporated into the given establishment and everyone is on the same buzz of “creating” “adapting” “transforming” all these buzz words sound like you are running at full speed while shouting them, PHEW I’M TIRED NOW!!!!
