Alice is an innovative 3D programming environment that makes it easy to create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a video to share on the web. Alice is a freely available teaching tool designed to be a student's first exposure to object-oriented programming. It allows students to learn fundamental programming concepts in the context of creating animated movies and simple video games. In Alice, 3-D objects (e.g., people, animals, and vehicles) populate a virtual world and students create a program to animate the objects.

In Alice's interactive interface, students drag and drop graphic tiles to create a program, where the instructions correspond to standard statements in a production oriented programming language, such as Java, C++, and C#. Alice allows students to immediately see how their animation programs run, enabling them to easily understand the relationship between the programming statements and the behavior of objects in their animation. By manipulating the objects in their virtual world, students gain experience with all the programming constructs typically taught in an introductory programming course.

The New Medical Assistant: Studies Assess iPads in Medicine

The New Medical Assistant: Studies Assess iPads in Medicine | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The results of both classroom and practice-based studies are proving the iPad to be a valuable resource in medicine.

 

St. Mary’s Health Care System purchased iPads and loaned them to third-year medical clerkship students from the Georgia Health Sciences University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership (GHSU/UGA) campus and are collaborating with the University of Georgia’s College of Education on a yearlong study to see how iPads can be used in medical settings on a daily basis.

 

The study, which began in July of 2012, is set to conclude in June of 2013. Thus far, the study included eight faculty physician preceptors at St. Mary’s and 36 third-year medical students from GHSU/UGA.

 

“You can talk to your patient and educate them,” said Michelle Nuss, the campus associate dean for graduate medical education at GHSU/UGA. “The more the patient understands their disease, the more they’re going to be invested in getting better because they understand why it’s happening to them.”

 

Patient engagement in healthcare has been a big concern as the costs continue to skyrocket. The belief that patients taking an active role in their healthcare was a major contributing factor to the overhaul of Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement policy in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and will be put to the test as hospitals are measured on quality of care and outcomes, and paid accordingly.

 

“Showing patients their chest X-rays in real time and their lab results on the iPad, and I think engaging the patient more in their health care and making them more educated about their own problems, has been a big component of the study,” Nuss said.

 

Patients with better health literacy have been shown to make better decisions, and cost less than patients with low health literacy, so understanding the impact of educating the patient will be an equally important result of this study.

The study is unique, in that it tests not only the impact of mobile technology on delivery of healthcare, but also the impact it has on educating medical students in the classroom.

Robin Good's curator insight, March 6, 2013 6:06 AM



ScreenHero, which I have reviewed and announced back in December, is a downloadable app which allows anyone to collaboratively screen-share any application and to work together simultaneously on it with others.


Today ScreenHero has released a Windows version of its free app which is immediately available for download here: http://screenhero.com/#download


From the official site: "You each get your own mouse pointer, and you're both always in control. It's designed for collaboration, not just broadcasting your screen.


From the original article on BetaKit: "The team calls Screenhero “Google Docs for any application.”


After downloading the app, signing up, and adding team members or friends, users can either share their entire screen or one individual window.


Once a contact has agreed to view the screenshare, both participants get their own mouse pointer and similar to Google Docs, can simultaneously edit and work on projects.


...


The company said their platform is ideal for developers who are programming together or reviewing code, companies who want to review designs or mockups together, or marketers giving product demos.


The basic account is free, and soon users will be able to pay either $5 per month for an individual pro account, or $49 per month for a pro team account, which will add additional features like support and enterprise integration.


The app also lets users chat using Screenhero’s internal chat feature, currently via text but the company said it plans to add audio chat as well, which is a crucial feature since right now most users who want to chat while they’re working together have to use Skype in conjunction with Screenhero."


Source: http://betakit.com/2013/03/05/screenhero-launches-windows-version-of-collaborative-screensharing-app



Screenhero lets you screen share any application with anyone, no matter where they are. It's super simple and blazing fast. You each get your own mouse pointer, and you're both always in control. It's designed for collaboration, not just broadcasting your screen. It's like Google Docs for any application on your computer.



Free for Mac and Windows.


Future pricing: http://screenhero.com/pricing.html

Screenhero is designed to feel like you're sitting next to the person you're working with — even when you're miles away. It's available for both Mac and Windows."

iCivics | Free Lesson Plans and Games for Learning Civics | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

iCivics prepares young Americans to become knowledgeable, engaged 21st century citizens by creating free and innovative educational materials.

In 2009, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor founded iCivics to reverse Americans’ declining civic knowledge and participation. Securing our democracy, she realized, requires teaching the next generation to understand and respect our system of governance. Today iCivics comprises not just our board and staff, but also a national leadership team of state supreme court justices, secretaries of state, and educational leaders and a network of committed volunteers. Together, we are committed to passing along our legacy of democracy to the next generation.
