Woodard, Howard C.; Shepherd, Sonya S.; Crain-Dorough, Mindy; Richardson, Michael D.
Journal of Educational Technology, v8 n2 p16-24 Jul-Sep 2011
Technology has ushered in a new era in higher education making knowledge of technology essential for administrators. Technology is transforming higher education by providing a global interconnectedness that reshapes educational, social, economic and cultural life. The globalization of networks based on travel, mobile phones, broad-band Internet and other information and communications technologies, are creating change on an unprecedented scale. Similarly, technology enables complex data transfers essential to knowledge-intensive production and distribution. Globalization forces higher education institutions to examine their participation in the international environment and to assess their involvement in a seemingly transparent world. The potential for technology in global higher education coupled with the mobility of people, information and ideas will expand the influence of technology, globalization and higher education.
