Our Complex Relationship With Technology
Julian Stodd

(1) I woke this morning to an angrily vibrating phone, on fire with little red alerts. My first action on getting up used to be making a cup of tea but it’s now hijacked by technology. Our relationship with devices is complex: love or hate, or need and want. In the Social Age, it’s technology that brings us together, that provides access to communities and facilitates the discussions we have within them. It enables the formation of wide collections of loose social ties and the maintenance of increased numbers of strong and deep ones, whilst also providing access to knowledge. My first instinct in many situations is to reach for the phone: maps, directions, email and texts, tuning the guitar or sharing on Facebook, finding out how to change the oil in the car or book a festival for the summer. I have some personal views to express my ideas in response to the advancement of technology.
(2) There are few aspects of life that technology doesn’t touch, but it’s easy to let the horse lead the cart. We are seeing technology transforming learning: systems provide infrastructure, media can be easily created to enhance learning, language itself is translated and transformed, we capture, share and journal with ease. The learning experience is more easily quantified, both for individuals and for organisations. But quantification doesn’t always equate to quality.
(3) It’s all about balance and agility: our ability to learn, to innovate and be creative, to do things differently tomorrow from how we did them yesterday. It means that we should have as much say in things as the devices we buy and carry around with us. Whilst the features of technology may connect us ever more closely and ever more vocally, scheduling, chasing and reprimanding us ever more often, we need to ensure that underneath it all we are being effective. It should be our natural behaviours that are being enhanced by the technology, not the technology forcing us to adapt our behaviours.
(4) We need to recognise that we now live in the Social Age of learning, where the bywords are agility and engagement, where formal experiences are less valuable than applied ones, where traditional models of authority and expertise are subverted by more social methodologies that rely on communities and sharing. We are in a time of change: change to how organisations and individuals engage with each other, changes in our relationship with technology, changes to how we engage within communities to learn to co-create meaning.
(5) Instead of depending upon lumbering formal technology, needing unwieldy servers and infrastructure, today’s artisan workers use tablets, phones and apps to achieve much the same thing. Instead of needing offices and pot plants, we need WiFi and coffee shops, Dropbox and Skype. However, it’s the social technology that fits into our lives rather than requiring us to adapt our lives to suit it. Social technology should give us access to our communities whilst we are on the move anytime, anywhere. Because social learning is anchored and grounded in reality making links back to formal learning, whilst formal learning is always trying to reach out to meet reality.
(6) Social Technology has to be effortlessly social, or it’s not social at all. The reason is obvious that large organisations spend so much money on that field and they fail to meet the needs or expectations of users. They are built around the requirements of IT teams, compliance teams, learning teams, but not the people who actually count: the people who use them.
