Virtual Communication

The Impact of the New Informational and Communicational Technologies in Contemporary Educational Space

Ileana Rotaru

This book presents an empirical approach to virtual communication. Based on the socio-cultural arguments of the postmodern paradigm, it demonstrates the necessity of analyzing the media pedagogy concept, both epistemologically and praxiologically. The concept of media competency is made operational by creating a system of communicational and informational competencies specific to the teaching personnel. To this end, the Mixed Standard Rating Scale is elaborated to rate and assess the media competencies of the secondary education teaching personnel. We have also proposed long life training programmes in the field of media pedagogy. These might be the answers identified against the challenges of virtuality as a mediatic and informational pressure.
