Technology and Social Connectedness

The potential to use technology to support social connectedness is a subject which has gained a lot of attention recently. In order to look at the current knowledge base and provide some straightforward guidance the TEC Programme’s International Engagement Team funded this research. The T&SCon project, led by Dr Louise McCabe and a team from the University of Stirling, has now concluded. The project explored the potential of technology to support social connectedness for adults living in Scotland.​  As well as featuring in Scottish and international events on this subject the project has produced a final project Flyer and Guidance for organisations and individuals looking to use technology in this way​. The Flyer and the Guidance are now available to read and to use. The guidance has three main parts: a ‘how to’ guide focusing on who, what, why and how a service or project might be set up; a series of three case studies; and access to the evidence that underpins this work

On 31 January 2020 at 11.00 (GMT) the Stirling University team will be delivering a webinar to discuss the project.
