I have participated in a conference in Jordan, 2014, “Digital Communication in the Time of Disclosure” and I tried to make a connection between communication, technology and social work as I believe we can use technology to get achievements in social work. They can help us to be more successful about working with vulnerable groups. That shows how I linked my educational background to my work experience as a social facilitator and expanded it.
