The social economy

Digital Communication Defined as we understand is the ability to create persuasive communications in different media. This can include websites, video, audio, text, or even animated multimedia. Digital communication is a foundation skill for most careers today as is very essential that everyone goes for training but more importantly knows how to use its resources. It should start in Pres School and be taught all the way up to higher education such as UCT. Students can learn a variety of digital communication skills across all their courses. This means they will learn all what is needed whether they build multimedia presentations to demonstrate their knowledge of academic subjects, create e-portfolios of coursework, or present ideas in a virtual classroom. (Classle-Social learning with online courses & books. 2016).

There is no doubt that technology has brought change and also social change. Technology has allowed trade between countries to take place, which generates money. Now unfortunately this means that a social divide of wealth will begin to take place. As a consequence of this, a gap between the rich and poor will begin to immerse. This will allow the rich to have access to new technologies and allow them to keep getting rich. This will always end up in a downward spiral for those less fortunate. Crime will increase which can clearly be seen in Cape Town and all of South Africa for that matter.

 

All in all technology leads to the alienation of people in a country irrespective of the idea that we are all born free and equal.
