Technology and Social Connectedness

By TEC Team, Tue, 26/05/2020

The potential to use technology to support social connectedness is a subject which has gained a lot of attention recently. In 2019 the TEC International Engagement Team funded the Technology and Social Connectedness Project, led by Dr Louise McCabe and a team from the University of Stirling. The project explored the potential of technology to support social connectedness for adults living in Scotland.​

A range of methods were used and the team have participated in a number of knowledge exchange activities since project was completed.

The Flyer and Guidance for organisations and individuals looking to use technology in this way​ are available. The guidance has three main parts:

  1. a ‘how to’ guide focusing on who, what, why and how a service or project might be set up
  2. a series of three case studies
  3. access to the evidence that underpins this work
