Abstract: Emergent media and social networking technologies provide unprecedented affordances in communications and human interaction across all segments of society. They will continue to affect experiences, challenge assumptions, and alter viewpoints at various levels. Those who work with ICT, especially in education settings, need to carefully consider the impact of their work and how perspectives, from personal to global ones, are shaped, developed, and articulated.
