Yeh – and now it’s Monday

One of me in SL

This is "me"

I hope all you chaps and chappesses had a great weekend – despite those very weird high winds. Yes thank you, I had a smashing weekend 🙂

As you know this blog is all about Digital Literacy, that title covers a very diverse range of topics ‘cos Digital Literacy is everywhere – some people don’t see that and are a bit flippant about it all. There is one place though that all this Digital Literacy stuff is thought of as a very serious subject and that’s in healthcare – especially in the USA. I picked up the following little nugget from one of my mail lists. The post at the top of this page is about how gaming can be used to improve people’s health. A lot of the psychological stuff about using avatars has been known for sometime and used to treat such things as Post Traumatic Stress but it’s nice to see the healthcare people really applying it in a more general way.

I came through a tortuous path to the role of Adviser in Digital Literacy in the Information and Learning Services Department. In the past I was a: Senior Lecturer in Health Informatics, Senior Lectuer in Midwifery, Midwifery Sister, Staff Midwife, Nurse, Secretary, Bars Manager. I would have liked to be a jeweller and silver smith but of course there is always retirement for that :)
