We have identified a need within education settings for more awareness and knowledge of the various ways that they can successfully use social media. Whether this is for teaching, for student awareness, for recruitment purposes or research dissemination. These and many other motivations for using social media present great opportunities for schools, colleges and universities.
We created the Ofsmed brand as a nod toward Ofsted, the government entity that assesses standards across education in the UK. The slogan states that we want to set new standards for social media in education. Through training, consultancy and our unique social media inspections. We also aim to build a community of education professionals that can share practice on use of social media.
Ofsmed is in startup stage. Please get involved and share news of this exciting new service.
