  • That's a very good set of slides Sarah. And unsurprisingly, it's a general message about using Twitter (and other social media) - not just for midwives. Keep it up!

  • Information changing all the time. Very important to stay up to date, but that can be difficult , especially when you are geographically isolated & do not have access to libraries – paper journal subscriptions can be very expensive.
  • Free tools - Very important in this day & age of financial stress, increase in price of petrol & flights.
  • Web conferences - Very important in this day & age of financial stress, increase in price of petrol & flights. Free access.
  • People can manage their own learning to suit their particular needs & requirements.
  • Lots of literature says that staff, especially new grads, people new to jobs/organizations, & people returning to work benefit from mentoring.
  • Computer literacy: knowledge and ability to use computers and technology efficiently (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_literacy) Digital literacy: ability to find, evaluate and use digital information effectively, efficiently and ethically
  • Access to broadband which supports a lot of social networking tools. Computers need to be freely available at work, and people made to feel that they can use them – may be issues to privacy.
  • Particular issue for people working in health & social professions. Need to adhere to professional and legal requirements, particularly about patient information. Also, implications for worker/employer relationship.
  • Institution/employer restrict tools that can be used by employees
  • People think that tools like youtube and facebook are frivolous tools just for the young.
  • Attitudes that learning is something that is ‘delivered’ in a ‘face-to-face context’ – that employers are responsible for providing education & learning. Education is something that is only done to fulfil professional requirements. Wont do it unless employer pays for it & provides the time.
  • Just because an article hasn’t been processed through a blind, peer reveiwed paper journal, doesn’t mean that it is not credible information. Look at wikipedia as example.
