Information technology together with communication technology has made life easier on us people. It bridges the communication gaps, it gives rise to more job opportuniti…es. it makes processes work faster etc. In a nutshell, IT and Communication technology simplifies of lives, they help make living a little better.
Some ways technology affect managerial communication are: Managers in different areas can communicate via chat and video chat over the Internet. Managers can be r…eached no matter where they are via cell phones. Manangers may attend meetings via online meeting software no matter where they are in the world. Online presentations can offer visual aids to online meetings.
Modern technology has affected communication in organization in a very positive way. Now, passing on new notices in organization, Having distant meeti…ngs with employees and keeping them informed of new decisions is now an easy task. Communication from one desk to another far off desk within Office or whole organization is now easy, Getting in touch with employees of organization in every branch is an easy task. Different discoveries in all branches of organization can be kept informed of. All above became possible because of Modern ways of communication. Communication's new techniques equally improved Communication outside organization. For many who grew up in the pre-email era, the handwritten letters we've received from loved ones are treasured mementos of our lives and relationships. In the age of email and instant messaging, such "snail mail" letters are often disparaged as an outmoded system and have become increasingly rare. Though technology has made communication easier and faster, did we also lose something irreplaceable in the bargain? Yes, says John T. Harwood, senior director of teaching and learning with technology, part of Penn State's Information Technology Services. "When my grandmother wrote me a personal letter, it was a single copy and was all the more precious. Now some people write one email to their whole family and it's not as personal." Technology is a double-edged tool, believes Harwood. "At its very best, online communication is profoundly democratizing," he notes. One study suggests that ninety percent of American college students have an account on Facebook, a leading social networking web site. Twenty-five percent of students write a web-log, or blog. "Students are using the Web to comment on society and question what they experience in the world," Harwood says. Penn State is encouraging this trend by rolling out a new service making blog-publishing easier for faculty, staff and students. (A pilot version begins Sept. 24 at http:/blogs.psu.edu.) Yet, Harwood cautions, "We are creating huge amounts of wonderfully expressive human communication through email, blogs, and instant messaging but a lot of this is not going to survive for very long---or no one will be able to access it." Our immense volume of electronic communication only exists as long as its medium does, he explains. "If you want to know what a departmental website looked like 10 years ago, we don't have it. "In my basement," Harwood adds, "I have files stored on two PCs from the mid-1980s, the age of floppy discs. Since floppies have gone the way of eight-track tapes and are useless to today's computers, those files are trapped with no way to retrieve them. The computers will eventually be recycled and the files lost." Digital communication change represents a loss to our cultural and historical record as well, he says. "When future scholars search for correspondence to better understand the great leaders and artists of our times, what will they find and how will they find it?" Sometimes paper is better, believes Harwood. For example, writer Ernest Hemingway meticulously saved his manuscripts, un-sent letters, recipes and receipts. This paper record has allowed Penn State Hemingway scholar Sandra Spanier to track down Papa's letters all over the world and collect them in an annotated 12-volume edition to be published by Cambridge University Press. "Fifty years from now," Harwood says, "where will historians like Spanier be when they're looking for their data?" While Harwood predicts that the march of technology will continue to yield better, more powerful search engines, "you can only search what has been preserved and digitized. Who will fund the preservation efforts? Individuals have no hope of creating a durable archive unless they print out everything and save it---a truly daunting task." Advises Harwood, "If you really want to preserve a letter, print it on acid-free, 20-pound weight bond paper and put it in a specially designed room like the Special Collections area of Pattee-Paterno Library. It will last for centuries!"
Modern technology for the most part has been great; the thing is that today's people have become dependent on their electronics. This is a bad thing in most cases.
"Information- and Technology-based Marketing" addresses how to use customer information and the technology to process it (i.e. databases, analytics, computing systems) to lear…n about and market to individual customers. Advances in the technology to process individual-level customer information has had two important effects for Marketing. First, many firms now possess much more information about consumers' choices and reactions to marketing campaigns than ever before. However, few firms have the expertise to intelligently act on such information. The first goal of this course is to help students develop this expertise. Specifically, the course will teach what it takes to collect, analyze, and act on customer information. For example, we will use sophisticated targeting models to increase marketing ROI in direct marketing campaigns. While we will use many quantitative methods in the course, the goal is *not* to produce experts in statistics. Instead, the goal is to train students to be able to comfortably interact with and manage a marketing analytics team. The second effect of information technology is that it has changed the competitive environment for many firms. Consumers have more information about competitive offerings, the Internet has allowed many competitors to market to consumers directly, etc. Hence, this course will also focus on how to adapt marketing strategy to an environment of more informed customers, more flexible competitors, and additional ways of reaching consumers. Marketing is going through an evolution from having been primarily an art to becoming a science. This course teaches students a crucial part of the "science" approach to marketing. We will use a combination of lectures, cases, projects, and exercises to learn the material. This course takes a very hands-on approach and equips students with tools which can be used immediately on the job. Frequently Asked Questions: Q: "How does "Information- and Technology-based Marketing" differ from "High-Tech Marketing" (MBA 264, EWMBA 264)?" A: The courses have no overlap. 'High-Tech Marketing' is about marketing high-technology products. "Information- and Technology-based Marketing" is about using customer information and "technology" (i.e. databases, analytics, computing systems) to market to consumers. Q: "How does "Information- and Technology-based Marketing" differ from "Marketing Research" (MBA 261, EWMBA 261)?" A: "Marketing Research" is a broad course that introduces students to a variety of research methods, such as psychological measurement, research design, survey methods, experimentation, etc. In doing so, Marketing Research focuses strongly on collecting data about consumers to understand their overall preferences. In contrast, "Information- and Technology-based Marketing" starts with the idea that you have a (potentially huge) database containing each individual customer and teaches you how to market to these customers using sophisticated techniques. The two course complement each other very well, however, you don't need one to take the other. Q: "Do I have to know a lot of statistics to succeed?" A: Absolutely not. While we will use statistics to analyze customer information and many of the assignments require you to use statistical techniques, all you need will be introduced in class with plenty of opportunity to get familiar with it.
How did technological advances in transportation and communications affect the industrial revolution?
Advances in tech. for trans. & comm. allowed an integrated global exchange of people, goods & knowledge.

How does the stability of technological civilizations affect the probability that Earth can communicate with them?
The more stable a technological civilization is, the more readily it can recieve radio signals from us. If anyone has a better answer, feel free to correct it.
if oranges are called oranges why arnt bananas called yellow?
Money time and communication, colt york was not here.
well... our brains will someday die and turn to mush we don't talk face to face as much and we don't send post cards anymore.
At this current day and age, students have cell phones. The majority of students that have cellphones usually are texting in class, just to talk to their friends about who kno…ws, and who cares. Because they are constantly texting and not paying attention to what the teacher is saying, they have a potential to drop their possible grade mark from over 90% which would be an A, to approximately 75% which would be a B- or a C. However, some forms of technology are used to advance the current amount of knowledge one person, or a group of people have. With the ability to communicate with others around the world, students can try to find people that can help them better understand whatever courses they are taking. If a student were to take a French course, they could use the ability of communication to try to find someone who is very fluent in the language, and talk to them to try to understand it much better then they already do.
by letting computers do all the work and there are no more jobs for people to do out there
it makes our works faster and easier.
How does technological change affect the way language is used and the way communication takes place?
Technology can change our way of communication by creating the new Devices like (Computers, Smartphones..etc) which makes life easier but decrease our social lives and prevent… us from doing unneeded things like for example i want to talk to an old friend so i have 2 ways go to his house and talk to him face to face or i can simply sit at home and text him and voice/video calls are also available from most of the smartphones and computers so this change our personalities to more of a shy person than a social person who talks to people everyday and since this guy talks to people everyday like a usual thing it makes the communication easier for him because he is used to it while people who are sitting at home and texting or voice chatting with their friends won't handle a problem that requires talking to a person face to face because they are not experienced and they do not know how to solve the problem or talk to strangers while people who do talk to people face to face will know how to handle that, this is not just for problems this is also for making friends for example if you're the kind of person who sits at home and text the whole time you wouldn't know how to make new friends and get to know new people and you probably won't dare to talk to new people because you just don't know how to start a conversation while others who talk to people on a daily basis will find it fun and easy to communicate with others whether their people you know or strangers.
