Imagine a day without access to your mobile phone, iPod, laptop, or the internet. How would you do your teaching, learning and research?

Describe in no more than 500 words and/or a 3 minute video blog, how important technology is to you in your work in education and research.

For example, have you been using web 2.0 tools to get in touch with or engage students or colleagues? Perhaps technology is helping to make your research quicker and easier, or maybe you’ve found a whole new angle of inquiry because of it? Whether it’s about getting in touch with far-flung colleagues, presenting your work in a new way, or working in an innovative area, we want to hear from you.
