Makale özeti ve diğer detaylar.
Throughout human history, science and technology has been key in achieving prosperity and a certain level of development in society. Knowledge has been utilized for the sustenance of life, increasing agricultural production, economic and industrial development, and security, along with various other fields. The diffusion of knowledge from the creators to the consumers, and the socialization of knowledge are some for the most important factors in increasing the standard of living in any given society. The sharing and socialization of knowledge from scientists - the creators of knowledge - and individuals who comprise society, brings social development and progress, which is indicative of the great importance regarding scientists' experiences with new communication technologies. This study aims to determine how people of science experience new communication technologies within the process of the socialization of knowledge. Two theoretical bases have been utilized for this study: (1) Network Society, (2) Connectivism. The network society theory states that the world has sociall and economically been restructured by the development of worldwide networks of advanced communication technologies, while the theory of Connectivism indicates that the primary source of learning is through the process of establishing connections.
