I recently attended a lecture-forum at the CCA of Saint Louis University, Baguio City last August 2011 on the “Recent Developments in ICT Service Innovation: Theories, Practices, and Cases” facilitated by Professor Doctor Guido Dedene of the Catholic University of Leuven and the University of Amsterdam. According to him, today’s economy is largely driven by information and services. We are ‘drowning’ in information but are starved of knowledge. Dr. Dedene said that about 60-80 percent of our efforts should be focused on knowledge creation and 20-40 percent on knowledge use and access.
In the same forum, I spoke on the challenges and directions of PSITE, the largest and most active organization of IT educators in the country.
