Participating and engaging in online communication and collaboration is one of the critical digital literacies that our students have to acquire during their studies. Social media, such as Facebook and blogs are tools that allow students to document a project, communicate this with the outside world, in the process connecting and engaging with communities beyond the classroom and the institution.
Design lecturers Mark Rautenbach and Jolanda Morkel and a group of first year students will present examples of using blogs to encourage reflective writing in studio based design projects.
