Session 03: Communication, culture & reality construction

EduBox 02 – Session 03

Communication, culture and reality construction

Communication is a process affected by many variables and if we consider the complexity involved in human interaction, then it is logical that communicating successfully with members of diverse cultures will be even more challenging.
In addition, new media such as internet mediated and mobile phone communication provide us with new tools to communicate independent of space and time. However, these tools also increase the potential for misunderstandings as a multitude of factors impinge on the communication outcome.
The main purpose of this EduBox is thus to enable students to identify and carefully assess factors that influence the communication process, thereby increasing their competence to develop shared meaning.
