Focus media and science

Issue: September 2017 149

Extract: Social media is an increasing part of everyday life for many of us. I know that I use it both for work and personally. In the last 18 months, I have used Twitter with some enthusiasm and now feel part of a community within science education that I didn’t know existed before. At the Association for Science Education Annual Conference in January 2017 there was a gathering of ‘science enthusiasts’, many of whom had never met until that evening other than virtually. That specific network has grown into a close-knit support and friendship group. Support available professionally through social media and other specific online groups is remarkable. And with smartphones at our fingertips, there is access to these communities almost 24/7. As teachers and science teacher educators there has never been as much help, literally, at hand.
