[Press & Publications] Logging on to the Communications Revolution [Technology]

April 2000

No 72

Are you gobsmacked by the size of gigabytes? Do you marvel at your megadrive?

The information and communication revolution seems to have a momentum of its own and it can have escaped no one that technology is fast changing the way people communicate and learn.

Now a conference involving the University of Leicester is turning the spotlight on the human dimension in communication - and the part it plays in the latest revolution.

In conjunction with ntl, the communications giant, Human Communication International, which promotes awareness of communication through conferences, training schemes and its journal 'Communication Matters', is holding its annual conference on 15 April at ntl headquarters.

Opened by Dr Peter Chatterton, an international consultant in technology systems, and under the guidance of its President, Dr Rosie Sage from the University of Leicester, the conference will see contributions from experts in public and private organisations who use technology for teaching, training, therapy and business communication.

There will also be the opportunity to view the video, recently produced by the School of Education at the University of Leicester, that tackles head-on the issues related to teaching communication.
