Social Work Tech: Blogs You Should Read
Through this series of notes, I will share links of Blog posts and/or websites I’ve found that I see as being too great to keep to myself.
These resources will come from a variety of areas of service and interests, with the common theme being a focus on issues related to diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice.
Some of them will be websites that I regularly look to for information and inspiration for my own personal growth, advocacy, and professional development, while others will be resources that I may have just discovered and want to get the word out.
Today’s Note highlights the blog Social Work Tech, which has also been featured in my note about 13 Compelling Social Work Blogs.
Why I Like It
“Written by Ignacio Pacheco, I love the look and feel of this blog. It’s a great example of how learning how to make technology work for us can make us better practitioners. The information is presented in an attractive and engaging way as well. “
A sample post (or posts) from the site that I’ve read, and think you should too.
“I have my social media set up for my workplace so that Instagram is my main posting place; I post once on Instagram, which will also carry over to Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr. Any tags I use in my original post carry over to those other venues. The main image used for this post illustrates my networking and strategy.”
“Ambiance is great for therapy because it offers a myriad of various different sounds that promote relaxation. This app is ideal for background noise in a therapy in lieu of a white noise machine. For clients, it may be useful as a tool to promote relaxation on their own. It’s a great app for selecting different types of sounds such as gentle or stormy rain, chimes, and ocean waves.”
