What does ‘disruptive technology’ mean?The word ‘disruptive’ has such a negative connotation that I am interested in why the instructors would select that word for the title of this course. The definitions of disruptive all seem to center around the idea of disorder, and the image that pops into my head when I hear the word is that of a hyperactive, misbehaving child calling out and otherwise interrupting the order of an activity.It is my understanding that the instructors of this course positively view the use of technology and are seeking ways to use it (it = blogs, podcasts, email, etc.) in new ways. Basically, some forms of technology have the ability to disrupt he status quo of information sharing and community interactions. Referring back my mental image of the word ‘disruptive,’ I would assume that technology is the hyperactive child and the current state of information sharing and community interactions are the ordered activity that is being interrupted.I look forward to future disruptions. Just don’t tase my blog entries, bro!
