Knowledge is a valuable resource that must be managed well for any organization to thrive. Proper knowledge management can improve business processes by creating value, yet the available tools meant to aid in the creation, collection, and storage of information have drastically changed since the emergence of social media. By using this collaborative online application for engaging with information, organizations are able to precisely decimate knowledge to the correct audience. Harnessing Social Media as a Knowledge Management Tool addresses the challenges and rewards of the proper use of social media, as well as the key enablers and barriers of its application. This publication endeavors to provide thorough insight into the role of social media in knowledge management from both an organizational and individual perspective. This book elucidates emerging strategies perfect for policy makers, managers, advertisers, academics, students, and organizations who wish to optimize performance.
Perspectives on Social Media presents the most current research on the effectiveness of social media across sectors. Progress in finding better applications for social media relies on the difficult task of integrating media technologies into fields such as engineering, marketing, health, learning, art, tourism, and the service industry. This book is based on cutting-edge creative work among top international researchers and renowned designers and provides readers with a preview of the most visionary outcomes in the field of social media. Some of the major topics that the book discusses are:
Perspectives on Social Media uniquely builds on recent disputes among the top scholars around the world, thus including the dynamics of knowledge-sharing and cross-fertilization that one would expect to happen on the web but that are rarely found in a book.
Provides 12 informative questions and answers about social media. Exciting, full-color spreads present related facts and tips and tricks you need to know to stay smart with technology.
This book introduces to the field of disaster studies a fresh methodology and model for examining and measuring impacts and responses to disasters. The interconnectedness of communities, organisations, governing bodies, policy and individuals, has not to date been accurately examined, or comprehensively modelled. This is vital for the assessment of a range of organisational structures and emergency responses upon community disaster resilience. Such modelling and measurement is imperative for planning policy and emergency responses and assessing individual and community vulnerability, resilience and sustainability and mitigation and adaptation to climate change impacts.
Urie Bronfenbrenner's bioecological systems theory is widely used in psychological and developmental fields, and offers a clear theoretical lens through which to examine the degrees of influence that exist elements when disaster occurs. This theory will be outlined and illustrated through a series of chapters that will guide the reader from its theoretical underpinnings through research illustrations and applications to each level of the ecosystem, culminating in an integration chapter. The final chapter will provide policy recommendations for local and national government bodies and emergency providers to help individuals and communities prepare and withstand the effects of a range of disasters.
This book will be of great interest to scholars and students of disaster and emergency management, disaster readiness and risk reduction (DRR) and sustainability studies more generally.
This volume brings together conceptualizations and empirical studies that explore the socio-cultural dimension of new media and its implications on learning in the 21st century classroom. The authors articulate their vision of new-media-enhanced learning at a global level. The high-level concept is then re-examined for different degrees of contextualization and localization, for example how a specific form of new media (e-reader) changes specific activities in different cultures. In addition, studies based in Singapore classrooms provide insights as to how these concepts are being transformed and implemented by a co-constructive effort on the part of researchers, teachers and students. Singapore classrooms offer a unique environment to study the theory-practice nexus in that they are high achieving, implicitly grounded in the eastern cultural values and well-equipped with ICT infrastructure. While these studies are arguably the state-of-the-art exemplars that synergize socio-cultural and technological affordances of the current learning environments, they also serve as improvable ideas for further innovations. The interplay between theory and practice lends support to the reciprocal improvements for both. This book contributes to the continuing debate in the field, and will lead to better learning environments in the 21st century.
