Knowledge media is about the processes for generating and sharing knowledge, and how the use of different media shapes these processes.
With skills in interactive development and design, as well as knowledge management, we produce multimedia learning resources which are freely available for educational use as well as the Learning Exchange, a digital library of thousands of learning resources. We look for new ways to exploit web-based communication to disseminate and embed knowledge and evidence in practice, for example by digital story-telling, creative storyboards and internet radio.
Our work contributes to the implementation of Knowledge Management Strategy for the Social Services and supports Social Services Knowledge Scotland (SSKS), a gateway to a wealth of information to support practitioners in day to day work and in learning.
We are passionate about the power of social media to transform the way people find, share and use knowledge and work collaboratively. Yet much of the workforce is either prevented or discouraged from innovating with social media. Our blog - Just Do It! - campaigns, argues and cajoles for the removal of barriers to the use of video, social bookmarking etc. in the workplace.
