Abstract

Abstract: Recent studies on use of Internet among youngsters suggest problematic behaviour and adverse impacts on overall health as there are uncharted boundaries of information and media through Internet. Such related problems include Internet addiction, shyness, alienation, psychological distress and academic performance decrement over time. As a consequence, the ability of students in tertiary education to communicate effectively and interact humanly could deteriorate as they become more accustomed to networking via Internet. However, students nowadays do increasingly rely on the Internet to perform research under the knowledge‑based economy despite concerns over reliability and truthfulness of information available from Internet. Against such a background, we construct a framework for an optimal use of Internet with the main purpose of Personal Knowledge Management (PKM). We argue for an interventionist approach to orient students in tertiary education to develop a strategic mindset that utilizes Internet as a source for developing knowledge about learning outcomes while mitigating the risks associated with over‑reliance and inadequate uses. There are specific skills of PKM for an optimal use of Internet. These skills can be learned in the initiation of a study programme and reinforced in course delivery, which include course assessments and assignments provided. Students are advised on the validated sources, such as electronic databases and e‑libraries that are well‑recognized as knowledge bases for studying and learning. PKM aims to orient students in tertiary education to develop a strategic mindset that exploits Internet as a source for developing knowledge about learning outcomes while mitigating the risks associated with over‑reliance and inadequate uses. The importance of orientation, on‑going monitoring and reinforcing position habits through pedagogies should be emphasized. A key potential benefit of this approach is to prevent students from adopting habits of using Internet that could cause health‑related problems and develop into behaviours that inhibit their future developments.

Abstract

Abstract: Knowledge‑based economy has recently gained an increasing attention in developed countries, however, understanding the main determinants of KBE development at a national level appeared to be neglected. Therefore, this paper tends to develop a conceptual model that addresses the main determinants of KBE development at a national level in which could accelerates the growth of national asset value and leads to national competitive position. Therefore, a systematic literature review was conducted to learn from advanced economies’ practices in KBE development and highlight KBE main pillars, drivers, and process of KBE function. The review reveals that :(A) development of human capital and maintaining the value of knowledge asset are the ultimate function(s) of KBE, (B) Learning, education, ICT and innovation are the main pillars of KBE, (C) knowledge management is the process underpinning KBE function, and (D) beliefs and intentions are the main endogenous drivers of individual’s commitment to KBE ultimate functions. The findings show that the determinants of KBE development at a national level are: (1) the consideration of KBE characteristics, (2) the consideration of country position, and (3) the consideration of effective knowledge management process that acknowledges KBE function(s), however the cognitive leadership is the enabler to achieve KBE ultimate function via its main determinants. The conceptual model proposed in this paper outlines KBE main determinants and enabler to guide practitioners and decision makers in developing KBE framework at a national level.

Abstract

The paper is devoted to the question of how important Intangible Assets (IA) are in today's knowledge‑based economy. The latest surveys show that the value of companies is now mostly generated by Intangible Assets, and not by "traditional" assets having a tangible form. The main research objective is to define the impact of fundamental value of both tangible and intangible assets on the market value of assets of Russian companies. As a general approach used herein for IA evaluation, the method of calculated intangible value offered by T. Stewart was chosen. Developed econometric models are tested on the data of Russian stock market from 2001 to 2005 year. In the focus of the research there is both the analysis of the sampled companies (43 companies) as a whole as well as divided into five aggregated fields: mechanical engineering, extractive industry, engineering, communication services, and metallurgy. Some suggestions for managing IA in Russian companies are presented in the paper. In conclusion, the main directions for further research in this field are outlined.
