Social Media is important to your studies

Please aim to create a Twitter account and follow the accounts below in order to become inspired and up to date with current affairs; this is something we will continue throughout the course. Throughout the summer, why not try to photograph a subject that tells a story; something that could accompany a news article and then post this on Instagram and tag us into it @barnsleycollegedigital – we’d love to see these!!
