* Giving Voice UK and Hello 2011

My contribution to the these campaigns so far has been:
  • to set up an SLTags collaborative dictionary, to help support RCSLT's push to get SLT's involved with Social Media as part of the Giving Voice UK campaign,

  • and to write a "Giving Voice" song on the ukulele.
For more info, see:

I hope that the SLTags dictionary, and other information on that page also helps SLTs access free, online CPD activities.  This is, of course, especially relevant to SLTs during periods of unemployment.

I could not think of anything to do specifically in support of Hello 2011, except publicising events and activities via Social Media and the slt-north email list, so I have done that. I hope that the support for involvement in Social Media and access to free CPD also helps to support the aims of Hello 2011, the UK Year of Communication.

* Scribd Collections *

Scribd is a free "e-library" where you can:

  • Store documents
  • Add other people's documents to your Collections
  • Read on-line
  • Freely download some documents as pdf files

My "Collections" on Scribd are rag-bags of "finds", including some gems, that I sift and winnow occasionally, ie. rather than static "recommended reading" lists.

  • Make your own judgements
  • Feel free to comment on individual items on the Scribd site
  • Make and share your own collections
