It applies an understanding of the social structures, roles and rights (the social sciences) to inform the design of systems that involve communities of people and technology. A socio-technical system (STS) is a social system sitting upon a technical base, with email a simple example of social communication by technology means.

Whether a community is electronically or physically mediated a socio-technical system is people communicating with people through technology rather than the physical world (which is a “socio-physical system”).Cited by:   Relating to sociophysics Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary.

This paper examines how technology mediates virtual learning environments using spatial themes (Oliver, ). By understanding the implications of this spatial framework, we are able to examine the implications of building wireless classrooms and future virtual infrastructures in learning environments.

These spatial themes are used to discuss online faculty and their perceptions of teaching. Table Computing levels as discipline perspectives. Levels also help clarify terminology. In Figure 3, a technology is any tool people build to use, e.g.

a spear is a technology (footnote 7).So a hardware device alone is a technology, but information technology (IT) is both hardware and software.

Likewise, computer science(CS) (footnote 8) is a hybrid of mathematics and engineering, not. It looks into the concept of sustainable rural development and planning and discussion on the extend to which the idea of sustainable development was incorporated in.
