Before Reading or Watching Videos, Students Should Experiment First

Before Reading or Watching Videos, Students Should Experiment First | AP Biology | Scoop.it

The study’s conclusion suggests that the current model of the flipped classroom should itself be flipped upside down. The researchers advocate the “flipped flipped classroom,” in which videos come after exploration and not before.

A very worthy observation.

and the pendulum swings

Angela C. Dowd's curator insight, August 2, 2013 3:33 PM

Experimenting first sounds good, though I think it depends on the learner and on what is being taught. I like the idea of pushing the envelop to be more inclusive...yet not throwing out things that continue to work (for some types of learners).

What do you use when you need to draw a diagram? Do you do the whole thing from scratch? Do you create each and every box with a series of four lines, or do you use a program that creates the box for you?

Inspiring

Julie Newman's curator insight, November 15, 2013 11:43 AM

I found this article very inspirational because it describes a teacher, Jane Good, who did not give up on her special needs students, as the school system was prior to her arrival. Before she came to her current school, her special needs students were placed in broken-down classrooms where they were given no attention and very low expectations. Good was able to guide her students in overcoming these obstacles with the help of a technology grant she received allowing her to supply everyone of her students with an iPad. These iPads allowed students to accomplish goals no one ever thought was possible for them. For example, one student who had never written before due to his lack of fine motor skills wrote his first word on the iPad. Similarly, three other students were able to learn to read though the iPad's stimulating and interactive features. After reading this article, I found that the iPad and other technologies truly helped children with special needs step outside the limitations previously established for them by the school system and make progress no one ever believed could be made. This alone shows me how powerful this tool can be in a special needs classroom. These students need to be stimulated through interactive learning and the iPad provides just that. I have found a lot of research that agrees with this article and proves that technology is a necessity in the special needs classroom.

An App to Help Doctors Diagnose Dementia

An App to Help Doctors Diagnose Dementia | AP Biology | Scoop.it
There is an app to make every part of life simpler. And this one helps doctors do their job.

 

Doctors can now reduce process of testing for dementia from three years to 10 minutes.

 

Cantab, a new iPad app from Cambridge Cognition, is designed to help early diagnoses of dementia. The technology, based on testing developed at the University of Cambridge, is designed to be easy for patients to use.

 

Cantab is available in 20 language, with options to encrypt test results for printing or including in a patient’s file.

The company warns that Cantab is only meant to aid preliminary diagnosis and is not a comprehensive recommendation. The test tracks scores for both mood and functional impairment, which give doctors a better idea of how to proceed with screening and treatment.

Expect to see a proliferation of these kind of mobile apps geared to health care delivery, health care providers or provider organizations, and available for Windows 8 in addition to iOS and Android mobile devices. This trend may cause some discruption in the medical device industry unless that industry shifts its resources to extended range real-time medical sensor development. Traditional centralized hospital telemmetry may be shadowed by nurses wearing very lightweight devices near waistt and a single headphone/mic in their ear allowing them to hear alarms from medication pumps, cardiac monitor flat line or lead dislodge detect, O2 SAT drops,BP deviations outside baseline for the individual patient, patient assistance calls, etc on the entire floor. Nurses need to be able to request assistance from other team members using handsfree communication. Nurses must be able to triage multiple alarms as they do now. Improved reliability and hardening of wireless protocols currently implemented in hospital settings or new ones will be required. The need for adequate staffing levels to ensure patient safety and effectively manage quality of care will not diminish.The length of time for pending alarms will be recorded and trended. Nursing staff should have the option to replay alarm location and time or automated message and save it but not delete it. This will make for a quieter environment for non-ambulatory patients thus an improved patient care experience. Notably, Kaiser Permanente is partnering with app developers who can show evidence of commercial marketability and investing in those innovative fledgling startups.

This is absolutely wonderful. To think the same device we use to make a call or take a photo with can actually help people's mental well being by aiding these doctors- Justine Pearce

YouTube is the second web search engine... just after google, and the 3rd social media around the world.

 

YouTube is the 3rd largest social media site on the planet. And its activity makes up about 20% of all social media activity.

YouTube is also the web’s 2nd most popular search engine — behind parent company Google!
