I m Niall and I'm quite new to this site so I'd appreciate any advice on social media from anyone on the following topic.
Basically, I am a town planner who has been working in online education for a number of years as well as in a consultancy GIS environment. I feel and have always felt that the gap between technical GIS users and non technical planners needs to be bridged. For that reason I am working on an initiative on this subject from the perspective of a geographer.
So basically, I have a big interest in hitting the online world and sharing my knowledge and skills on GIS, town planning 'sustainable development' in an original intuitive way. As a town planner who has worked with IT systems for a number of years I feel that it is essential that the town planning profession becomes more IT literate.
So anyway I was just hoping to get a few thoughts off people on this site and to see if (A) anyone would be interested in such material and (B) if anyone can share their experience on education initiatives and in particular social media etc (twitter, facebook, linkedin etc).
Any tips or pointers would be fantastic!
