Information Technology and Interpersonal Behavior: Impact on Supervisor-Subordinate and Teacher-Student Relationships.
Cahn, Dudley D.
The impact of telecommunications on the development of interpersonal relationships has caused the traditional, centralized industrial management model--a highly rigid, top down, hierarchical communication system--to be replaced by a new decentralized communication model--a highly flexible, interdisciplinary network where people serve one another and share information in more equal and informal management styles. Similarly, as part of the student learning network, the role of teacher is less formal and authoritative and more facilitative in helping students learn for themselves how to cope with rapid change, how to think, make decisions, solve problems, and how to gain insight and be creative.
