  • Three main factorsWe were invisibleStudents LOVE GoogleWe have to sell ideas – making them ‘sticky’ – ‘Simple, Unexpected, Concrete, Credible, Emotional, Stories’ (Heath and Heath, 2007 ‘Made to Stick’)
  • It’s was a little like this… there was a load of good and interesting stuff going on under the surface… but were we visible? Not at all!Image source: http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/desert_island.png

  • We needed somewhere to share ideas, to get discussion happening… to be responsive to our audience and to help make connectionsThe official website is not a place for ideas.
  • In the University of Sheffield Students’ Union ‘Technology in learning and teaching’ research, 2012, the top 5 websites and online resources students couldn’t live without was as follows:1. google/google scholar/google mail2. MOLE3. online journal resources4. Wikipedia5. youTubeImage from http://www.flickr.com/photos/31751386@N00/7760134/
  • Image by http://www.flickr.com/photos/9822107@N08/3341768026/We need to be practitioners… we need to be visible… we need to be enthusiastic… we need to be supportive… and interesting… and innovative… and this is where going Google has really helped us.
  • We’re taking the view that Twitter and Facebook are personal points of presence – Google Apps including Google+ and Blogger are our professional tools for visibility and discussion… the point where there’s intersection is through the use of hash-tagged content

  • Discussions / interviews / general chat
  • We use a hashtag and a circle to update each other every day on what we’re doing across two teams
  • Because you can easily +1 things on a range of websites, it’s been great for sharing items of interest across the team. If I want to draw something to someone’s attention in particular, I just +them and it grabs their attention
