It is said that the ontology of data resists slowness and also that the digital revolution promised a levelling of the playing field. Both theories are examined in this timely collection of chapters looking at time in the digital world. Since data has assumed such a paramount place in the modern neoliberal world, contemporary concepts of time have undergone radical transformation. By critically assessing the emerging initiatives of slowing down in the digital age, this book investigates the role of the digital in ultimately reinforcing neo-liberal temporalities. It shows that both "speed-up" and "slow down" imperatives often function as a form of biopolitical social control necessary to contemporary global capitalism. Problematic paradoxes emerge where a successful slow down and digital detox ultimately are only successful if the individual returns to the world as a more productive, labouring neoliberal subject. Is there another way? The chapters in this collection, broken up into three parts, ask that question.
Die Autoren untersuchen die Regierungsprogramme der 1990er Jahre zur Förderung der Informationsgesellschaft in Deutschland und den USA für die Anwendungsbereiche Bildung, Verwaltung und Fernsehen. Dabei identifizieren sie sowohl Unterschiede als auch Gemeinsamkeiten in den Ländern und Bereichen. Der Rückblick ermöglicht interessante Schlüsse in Hinsicht auf die Zukunftsperspektiven von multimedialen Anwendungen in der Schule, E-Government oder web-basiertem interaktivem Fernsehen.
This open access volume assesses the influence of our changing media environment. Today, there is not one single medium that is the driving force of change. With the spread of various technical communication media such as mobile phones and internet platforms, we are confronted with a media manifold of deep mediatization. But how can we investigate its transformative capability? This book answers this question by taking a non-media-centric perspective, researching the various figurations of collectivities and organizations humans are involved in. The first part of the book outlines a fundamental understanding of the changing media environment of deep mediatization and its transformative capacity. The second part focuses on collectivities and movements: communities in the city, critical social movements, maker, online gaming groups and networked groups of young people. The third part moves institutions and organizations into the foreground, discussing the transformation of journalism, religion, politics, and education, whilst the fourth and final part is dedicated to methodologies and perspectives.
This book demonstrates how media technologies shape amateur sports and how some of these sports are modified. The author uses an innovative measuring approach to analyze how people use media technologies in conjunction with sports and how their relationship with physical activity is affected by the ever-present influence of the media.
This book constitutes the refereed post-proceedings of the 10th IFIP WG 3.7 Conference on Information Technology in Educational Management, ITEM 2012, held in Bremen, Germany, in August 2012. The 16 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected. The papers offer an outstanding overview of the contemporary field of information technology in educational management. They focus on four key questions: Why do we need new educational management information systems? What issues face those developing new educational management information systems? What new educational management information systems are being developed? What educational management systems are already in place?
This book attends to the transformation of processes and practices in education, relating to its increasing digitisation and datafication. The introduction of new means to measure, capture, describe and represent social life in numbers has not only transformed the ways in which teaching and learning are organised, but also the ways in which future generations (will) construct reality with and through data. Contributions consider data practices that span across different countries, educational fields and governance levels, ranging from early childhood education, to schools, universities, educational technology providers, to educational policy making and governance. The book demonstrates how d...
Bisher wurde das IT Service-Management in der öffentlichen Verwaltung in Deutschland nur am Rande behandelt. In diesem Buch geben die Autoren einen umfassenden Einblick in die bisherigen Fortschritte bei der Implementierung von IT-Prozessen in öffentlichen Einrichtungen und arbeiten, basierend auf fünf Fallstudien, Erfolgsfaktoren heraus, die auch auf andere Organisationen übertragbar sind.
