Monograph "Communication and construction of knowledge in the new technology space"
This monograph deals with the relationships between communication, the building of knowledge and the interactional area in which they operate, going in depth into the theory and on to practical uses. We consider that this area is the environment where interactions take place and that the methods are conditioned by its dimensions. There was a time when pedagogical styles and methods aimed to reproduce reality inside a classroom, or at least to find close analogies to the facts and phenomena that were being studied. The present-day technological environment goes beyond this practice and allows us to broaden the expanse where interactions take place, leading us towards or away from our object of knowledge. So strategic management is necessary, whether using forums, chats or blogs, whether with wikis, social networks or podcasts, or with any of the new ways to generate micro-content, to help us define the specific size and location of this space and to bring us closer to the stated educational objectives throughout the training course.
