Content

Our world is now a world of information. On the one hand this makes many things easier, fun or even possible but on the other it can cause us to be overloaded with information and distracted by our constant connections. In this unit we look at how we might manage better and use information and connections in business, at work and in everyday life.

The unit begins by considering the changes that the digital world has made to our lives and how we live in a world immersed in information and social media. We then look at how we can search and analyse information and utilise social media for business, learning and collaboration. We then look at how information can be used to assist people but also to monitor and manage people at work and at home. Finally, we consider how to use ICT in a more secure manner.
