Managing Information: Current issue: Volume 21 Issue 1

Image: Managing Information current issueAt its best, information technology adds to the physical and natural world, it is not a replacement. There is a whole new range of skills and expertise in blending the virtual and real world in order to support education, development, skills and knowledge acquisition.

What is best covered in a video presentation and what is best covered with something text based? Who is the target audience – a group of senior academics or primary school children? What type of information is being presented – the career (to complement a statue) of a leading 1930s footballer at a stadium or information on how to manage a medical condition such as cancer?

In this issue, in a variety of articles, research reviews and book reviews we look at the challenges, and offer practical solutions, in combining the virtual and real worlds.
