George Fattal’s reflections – workshop 1

As a first year, I was intimidated by the massive reading list we were given at the beginning of the year. I was also confused by the many digital platforms used at LSE. As a new university student it can be hard to deal with the hundreds of thousands and even millions search results.

Workshop 1: Introductions, Googling and irritating social media

It was great to finally meet our new Ambassadors for Digital Literacy, and we had a great first workshop, which covered using Google and LSE Library search tools to source information. We broke the ice by asking the Ambassadors what they found annoying when using social media. The SADL team joined in too, and some of the causes of digital […]
