OTalk’s Occupation Station #RCOT2018

21st Century Meaningful Activity – Using Social Media to Engage.

This year the OTalk team hosted a occupation station, on Tuesday 12th June, at the Royal College of Occupational Therapist annual conference in Belfast.

The Aim of the session was to explore the use of the Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and Blogging platforms for professional and therapeutic means.

We did this by inviting partisapants to engage in a social media speed dating exercise with 7 minutes per platform. Ending with a reflecting on why we use social media and reminding use to ensure our use is in line with our codes of conduct.

Below are resources we used during the occupation station.
