Information, Communication, Learning

There is growing recognition that knowledge management is based on effective communication between people in many different forms. The most appropriate form of communication will depend upon the individuals and on the subject matter.

Rapid development in information and communication technologies (ICTs) capabilities should not overshadow the many traditional approaches to communication used throughout the world every day.

This section of Practical Answers looks as some of the approaches to ICTs and how to make best use of them.
