In many disciplines, the field experience is the culmination of learning, and the socialization of students into the profession. In social work education, the field experience is also the signature pedagogy, which brings theory to practice.

Resumen:

En muchas disciplinas, la experiencia de prácticas es la culminación del aprendizaje, y la socialización de los estudiantes en la profesión. En el trabajo social educativo, la experiencia de prácticas es también la pedagogía primariamente, que lleva la teoría a la práctica. Para abordar las necesidades de un grupo cambiante de interesados, la Escuela de Trabajo Social comenzó a utilizar múltiples plataformas tecnológicas, incluyendo software de prácticas basado en web, tipos diferentes de correo electrónico, una plataforma de aprendizaje electrónico, videos de YouTube, contenido web revisado y página de Facebook. Todos estos recursos se combinan para proporcionar a los estudiantes, instructores de prácticas, y la facultad, la información que necesitan en cualquier campo de intervención.

Palabras clave: prácticas de trabajo social, tecnología, medios sociales, aprendizaje diferencial
