Synergistic teamwork using social media for innovative development of an Arabic symbol dictionary
The use of social media and online systems has provided for participatory research to be undertaken between researchers, therapists and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) users to ensure the development of meaningful symbols and a core vocabulary for use in an online Arabic Symbol Dictionary. Data gathering and interviews using a series of collaborative systems has enhanced the cultural understanding between therapists working with these children and adults and researchers. Bespoke systems have also promoted the building of a synergistic team able to respond speedily to users’ needs, data collation and analysis as well as collaboratively solving problems that arise. The different types of social media have impacted on the research and caused the team to reflect on the way they have affected outcomes.

Abstract

The use of social media and online systems has provided for participatory research to be undertaken between researchers, therapists and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) users to ensure the development of meaningful symbols and a core vocabulary for use in an online Arabic Symbol Dictionary. Data gathering and interviews using a series of collaborative systems has enhanced the cultural understanding between therapists working with these children and adults and researchers. Bespoke systems have also promoted the building of a synergistic team able to respond speedily to users’ needs, data collation and analysis as well as collaboratively solving problems that arise. The different types of social media have impacted on the research and caused the team to reflect on the way they have affected outcomes.
