Online Communication Research Project
In the summer of 2008, I undertook a research project into social media and online communication as part of my undergraduate studies. This project marked the beginning of a personal journey across the changing online landscape – observing and chronicling developments in social media and technology and noting the impact upon online communities.
This journey lead me on to my first post working on the development of technology enhanced learning (TEL) in Higher Education with a particular focus on the effective and innovative uses of social media in learning and teaching in order to enrich the student experience.
Extracts from this research project are now being re-published on this blog in their original form as the starting point of my continuing research into the use of technology and social media to enhance life skills and improve digital literacy and how best to devise and promote innovative methods – including greater use of mobile technologies and flexible online learning – to cascade this improvement throughout the workplace.
