What is #ASYEngage? 

#ASYEngage: Exploring the opportunities and challenges of social work encounters with social media

The research will address the opportunities and challenges social media brings to the social work profession by documenting the experiences of newly qualified social workers in their first year, also known as ASYE (Assisted and Supported Year in Employment).

The social workers involved in the study will keep reflective journals or blogs throughout the year, documenting any significant social media related experiences – their own direct encounters through social media use, or issues arising indirectly from their work with service users and other professionals.

These newly-qualified social workers all hold different perspectives on social networking. Whilst some maintain active online engagement, others prefer to avoid social media completely. The study will acknowledge and incorporate these different attitudes and potentially related consequences to practice.

#SWDigital16 Digital Practice Conference: East Sussex

East Sussex: digital trailblazers in the making
Commissioned by @NicolaMcGeown – Principal Social Worker

We were delighted to have the ebullient Amanda Taylor @amltaylor66 as our keynote speaker, a social work academic who is leading the way in digital social work education and practice. The energy that Amanda brought enthused and inspired delegates and by the end of the day social workers were tweeting, writing Padlets and contributing to this digital practice LearningWheel. The LearningWheel is an initiative first developed by educational technologist Deborah Millar @DebMillar24 as a means of engaging teachers with digital technologies for contemporary practice. As a result of Amanda and Deborah connecting their mutual interests and sharing ideas they have now developed the original LearningWheel concept into what they term the ‘ConferenceWheel’ and as you can see, use this evolved framework to connect and collate conference spaces… read more
