Is social housing (still) sleepwalking into a digital nightmare?

Social Reporter

Back in 2002 a group of us co-authored a book for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation about why social landlords, and their residents, should be concerned about joining the online world both for its benefits and because of the way public services were going digital. Research suggests this is partly because of lack of vision, lack of skilled staff and funding and the need for organisational culture change. Making the Net Work for residents and their landlords – 2002.

The Riddle of Online Resonance (first installment)

Jenny Connected

There has been plenty of research on how to develop online connections once they have been made, but the question of how the initial contact is made has not received much attention. Learning through connectivity is not a new idea; there is a long history of research into networked learning (Steeple & Jones, 2002; Goodyear et al., There is little research that we can find which explores ‘how’ connections are made in the very first instance of contact.
