The Curious Peasant is now on Twitter

And has a Facebook page

Peasants use technology too!

The Curious Peasant has been investigating the cutting edge of technology today. A workshop at Bath Spa University with The Thesis Whisperer has given me an insight into all sorts of social media tools. The number of linked programmes is bewildering: Twitter, Padlet, Pocket, Evernote, CamScanner, Zite, Pinterest and lots, lots more. The range of programmes out there to to help with the dissemination of information is astonishing. The workshop was aimed primarily at PhD researchers (Oh yes, that's me!) and, once I get my head around how to access them all and use them all I hope to get them all linked up and be able to tell the world more about The Curious Peasant............
