Qualified Glasgow-based teacher providing insights and instruction into the world of today’s Social Media

Methodology

I take a hands on approach to teaching about social media - believing students learn best while engaging and using the individual platforms. I have tutored learners from completely new with computing to more experienced users wanting to extend their skills. Lessons may range from: creating your user profile, posting and adding content, searching and following, liking and commenting, sharing, messaging, defining security settings, etc. Preferably first lessons will be face to face, and as students develop confidence with the platform future lessons can then be done online via webcam.

Background

I am a qualified teacher who often finds herself providing computing support to colleagues, friends and family. I am used to working in both classroom settings and 1 to 1. I have lots of hands on experience with computers, and have been studying my postgraduate diploma in Digital Education (learning through online platforms) at the University of Edinburgh. I engage with social media for a range of purposes, including personal, educational, and professional.

Details
