Social Media in Social Work Education

Edited by: Joanne Westwood

There has been a recent growth in the use of social media tools in social work education. This edited text presents a series of chapters which discuss social media activities and how they can contribute to student learning, as well as to social work practice. The contributors, all innovators in the use of social media, introduce the landscape and discuss how social media activities have begun to impact on both social work education and on practice. The professional codes of practice and the values and ethics questions that such activities can raise are introduced and explored across the chapters. Packed with practical examples and exercises, this innovative volume is a useful tool for students, practitioners, and academics new to using social media in their teaching.
