Using MS Word, draft a 3-4 page APA formatted report addressing the following THREE questions:
  • The Asaolu (2006) article in the readings from Lesson 2 anticipates the influence of new technologies on work and learning in contemporary organizations. Find, cite, and briefly describe another article or book reference that describes what we mean when we describe the “global, high-tech workplace of the 21st century.”  Although descriptions of the future workplace tend to be enthusiastic and non-critical, can you anticipate any challenges that employers and employees will face as a result of emerging technologies?
  • The two most widely used “productivity technologies” in the workplace are currently Google Suite (GSuite) items as well as e-mail and Office 365 (e.g., MS Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint). Does your organization or company currently use other technologies to increase productivity, communication flows, product development and testing efforts, or learning/training initiatives? How is the majority of training offered in your current work setting?
  • What technologies have changed the way organizations and the training sector work?  What implications does this have for the next 5-10 years?
