The convergence theory on ICT, society, and human beings: Towards the good ICT society
2010 (English)In: Information and Communication Technologies, Society and Human Beings: Theory and Framework, IGI Global, 2010, 30-46 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
The convergence model illustrates ongoing changes in the Net Society. The theoretical model synthesises the theoretical framework in the author's research on the psychosocial work environment and computerization. Interdisciplinary research programs were initiated by the author in the 1970s, leading to analysis of societal changes related to various periods in 'the history' of ICT. The description of the convergence model is structured with reference to the core concepts of Globalisation, ICT, Life Environment, Life Role, and Effects on Humans. Convergence and Interactions are important features of the model that organizes analysis at the individual, organisational, community, and societal levels.
