Transcript of Social Sciences Summer School

However, technology is a necessary condition for the emergence of a new form of social organization based on networking, that is on the diffusion of networking in all realms of activity on the basis of digital communication networks.
The network society, in the simplest terms, is a social structure based on networks operated by information and communication technologies based in microelectronics and digital computer networks that
generate, process, and distribute information on the basis of the knowledge accumulated in the nodes of the networks. A network is a formal structure (Castells, 2005, p. 7).

Gender and Online Worlds - Key Issues
by Jessie Bustillos

Understanding society as technological transformation
Our world has been in a process of structural transformation for over two decades. This process is multidimensional, but it is associated with the emergence of a new technological paradigm, based in information and communication technologies, that took shape in the 1970s and diffused unevenly around the world.
We know that technology does not determine society: it is society. Society shapes technology according to the needs, values, and interests of people who use the technology. Furthermore, information and communication technologies
are particularly sensitive to the effects of social uses on technology itself.
Network society and web 2.0
So what about the individual and these technologies?
In your groups think about the moral panics normally associated with usage of social media by children and young people?

You can use your phones to google media stories about these moral panics you mentioned.

What is the story now?
The importance of gender in understanding online/offline interactions
Think in your groups what the importance of problematising gender is in understanding online and offline worlds and these moral panics we've been discussing?

A Web 2.0 site
allows users to
interact and
collaborate with
each other in a
social media
dialogue as
creators of
content in a
virtual community,
in contrast to
websites where
people are
limited to the
passive viewing
of content.
These issues are extremely poignant for understanding how children and young people are understood in network societies.
