M

obile and online technologies have transformed my practice as a learner, teacher, and researcher in many ways.
First, social media means that I am now part of a global, distributed network of peers, able to communicate and share on a
wide range of topics. I can pose a question on Twitter and get answers in
minutes, I can support Ph.D. students with their research questions, and I
can share research findings and discuss the findings of others. Second, my
blog has transformed the way I research-the way I think and the way I write.
I truly value the comments that colleagues make and the feeling of being
a connected community of peers. Finally, with new tablet devices like the
Apple iPad Mini, I can connect and browse anywhere, anytime, through a
rich set of interactive and communicative apps.

Key Lessons
1
