25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning - InformED

25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning - InformED | Lifelong Learning | Scoop.it

"Is your capacity for learning is fixed or fluid? Can you improve your intelligence and talents through hard work and practice, or are you stuck with the brains you’ve got? Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck says most of us have either a “fixed” or “growth” mindset when it comes to learning. Most of us can get through sixteen years of schooling regardless of which mindset we have, but when it comes to lifelong learning–learning for the sake of learning, without outside pressure–only a growth mindset will cut it."

“ Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education”
Ruby Day's insight:
Excellent article that looks in-depth at using the content curation tool Storify. Practical examples given for how to use this to facilitate learning around credibility of sources, identifying bias, valuing opinions, framing in the media, the pros and cons of social media in story telling along with encouraging positive contributions online and digital citizenship.

tout le problème est de l'intégrer dans les cours. 

Nick van Breda's curator insight, October 22, 2014 11:58 AM

Interesting article. Reflections…. Self worth and achievement seem to be linked together in most of Western Society. We personalise events in our life and then begin to live from our memories, gaining a false sense of identity instead of seeing it simply as a series of skills to learn. 

Takeaways: 

"people who think about their own learning, make a habit of asking questions, use what they’ve learned, teach what they’ve learned to others, and enjoy the learning process on an intrinsic level all become better learners"

"these are all strategies and habits that can be adopted through practice… The smartest, most successful people in the world wouldn’t be where they are today if they weren’t skilled learners. So let’s examine which strategies we should be perfecting and how they can serve us in the long run."

Doctors now using social media as a means of continuing education

Doctors now using social media as a means of continuing education | Lifelong Learning | Scoop.it
The landscape of healthcare marketing has changed dramatically over the past decade, with a multitude of doctors and medical professionals turning to social media for myriad purposes. This is no surprise, as 72 percent of American adults use one form of social media, according to the Pew Internet & American Life project, but some doctors are leaning on platforms like Twitter as a means of providing continuing education to medical professionals all over the world. According to InformationWeek, Mike Cadogan, Ph.D., an emergency medicine physician and digital media enthusiast from Australia, found himself frustrated by the lack of interest in social media by many professionals in his field, especially as a means of spreading knowledge. As a result, a new hashtag, #FOAMed, which stands for Free Open Access Meducation (medical education), was first proposed by Cadogan in a lecture at the 2012 International Conference on Emergency Medicine and has already taken Twitter by storm. "I'd always seen blogging and podcasting as an amazing medium for medical education," Cadogan told the news source. "It's a way to get peopled on board with something they felt was very beneath them. We've actively managed to engage a large group of researches and significant academics who are moving away from writing textbooks and journal articles to doing more in the online arena." With the immense importance of academic journals and other studies still playing an active role in the healthcare field, the open source and open content trends of the internet provided a great opening for medical professionals to access the newest information and apply it going forward. Cadogan's hope is that Twitter can not only be a great place for doctors to communicate, but it can also become a great research tool to improve communication and collaboration throughout the field.
Ruby Day's insight:
Highlights the value of social media for continued education for doctors. Not mentioned in the article, but this really demonstrates the importance of communities of practice for any field along with the value of content curation sites as a means to collect, reflect and share.
