PAPER SUBMITTED TO ICICTE 2008
The paper calls for a fresh new perspective in thinking about the application of ICTs in post-modern learning environments. Adopting a Lefebvrian view of theoretical approximations, it sets the challenge to reconsider the value of available information and knowledge in the context of global electronic communication. It aims to establish a spatial theoretical understanding of the digital reorganization of information and knowledge by ICT systems. It is argued that the reconsideration of our daily digital environments and informational landscapes must proceed from an in-depth analysis and a ‘framing’ of the organization of information systems.
