The Australian today published an article sourced from The Independent called ‘The end of email; discover new ways to stay in touch’, which focuses on new communication modes, particularly the use of collaborative websites like wikis or google documents to facilitate effective team work.
The article gives some interesting examples of companies that have moved from an email communication paradigm to using a wiki, or gogle docs successfully. Instant messaging also gets a mention as an alternative to the over-stuffed inbox approach to life.
This comes as I hear more and more teachers talking about drowning in an email deluge and many of us look for wiki tools that can be effectively integrated with our existing systems.
Definitely worth a read HERE
