Technology has changed the way we live, the way we work, the way we play,
communicate, date, talk, discover… but how does it affect your life as a student?

Being smart in how you use all those devices and technologies out there – laptops, mobiles, tablets, websites, apps - can give you a real advantage, helping you to study and learn more effectively and build up an online profile that will enhance your future career prospects.

The aim of this site is to help you think about how our digitally-saturated environment affects the way we study and learn and the way we represent ourselves to others through social media and online. Our objective is to make you think and reflect on how you currently use these tools and how you could use them better in the future.
