New ASCILITE Blog Post on "The Application of Alternative Digital Platforms & Digital Tools"
You are invited to read and comment on the third and latest post at ASCILITE's TELall blog. The topic of this week's blog comes from University of Southern Queensland (USQ), Open Access College (OAC) lecturers Naomi Ryan and Susan Hopkins who have been exploring the application of alternative digital platforms and digital tools in pre-tertiary teaching.
As they posit in the blog, "is it timely to ask if social media be used for more positive and pro-social ends, such as the socialisation and enculturation of marginalised student populations?
Perhaps you would like to add your own thoughts in a comment after reading the post?
