The Social Work Social Media App – Social Work Education In Your Pocket! [VIDEO]

This is a reblog from Mobile Social Work:

Our dear colleagues Tarsem Singh Cooner – Social Work Lecturer and Associate Director at the Centre of Excellence in Interdisciplinary Mental Health (CEIMH) at University of Birmingham – released a social work education app offering „you an amazing way to explore some of the ethical issues of using social media in social work.“

The following video gives you a short introduction into the app.

The app is available for iOS and for Android. For more information go to The Social Work Social Media App.

Great Work, Tarsem!

The app can be beneficial to social work students in several courses as the following themes are covered:

  • Is social media skills development important for social workers?
  • What are the ethical implications of exploring open social media profiles?
  • Should social workers be mindful of their online image?
  • Does social media present new personal/professional boundary issues?
  • How can social workers effectively engage in continuing professional development when using social media?
  • Can skills, knowledge and confidence in social media use lead to greater service user, community, inter-professional engagement? (source)
