Using social media to share personal and collaborative achievements

  1. 1. Using social media to share personal and collaborative achievements Sue Beckingham | @suebecks National Teaching Fellow and Principal Lecturer Business Information Systems and Technology, Department of Computing
  2. 2. Becoming a Social Leader "The ability to use a computer, smartphone and tablet is essential to operate in today’s workplace. The ability to negotiate, to set direction, influence and contract with others is also key. The world changes fast and, as it does so, our skillsets for survival have to adapt: we have to adapt to new technology as well as to new mindsets, new social paradigms." Julian Stodd (2013)
  3. 3. Social Leaders possess the skills to engage with a team: not just in the room, but in social learning spaces too. They don’t just have these skills themselves, they share them to develop social capital in others. Social leaders are comfortable with the technology, but recognise that systems and processes won’t deliver: they can bridge the gap between process and excellence and they share their experiences as they do so.
