Curation as an approach to elearning

Interesting video, drawings and view on curation: learning is more about how learners construct knowledge, so it’s positive to contribute to the scaffolding construction that enables people to learn (by Curatr http://www.curatr.co.uk/)

App Review Commentary News
Post image for Medical app uses augmented reality to enhance patient education

We have seen Augmented Reality used in a number of medical apps; however, we have not yet seen it in any patient education apps.

EyeDecide is created by OrcaMD, a company renowned for producing a range of high quality patient education apps. OrcaMD has recently released a series of updates to their Decide series — some of which take advantage of augmented reality.

Augmented reality (AR) is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory inputs such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.

In the case of EyeDecide, the app cleverly uses the camera display to simulate the impact of certain conditions on your vision.

With EyeDecide, the developers use the camera to simulate the vision of a patient affected by a certain condition. In the case shown below, the user is demonstrating the impact of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). However, there are also other AR options available for Cataracts. It is clear that trying to explain the impact of AMD and how it will affect vision can be quite challenging, though, with the aid of an app such as EyeDecide and AR this process should be easier.

The screenshots below demonstrate how the vision of a patient with AMD will progress. At the same time, you can see how the eye itself deteriorates on the right of the screen.

Some of the advantages of augmented reality in patient education are shown below:

    Patients can visualise the pathology/effect the clinician is talking about
    A multisensory experience has been shown to be more effective in transmitting information (Balog et al. 2012).
    Patients and family members can see how a potential disease would impact them in their natural surroundings e.g. testing their vision at home

Of course, there are also disadvantages of augmented reality in patient education:

    Not all conditions are amenable to AR
    Progression can be extraordinarily variable, particularly if it is unknown e.g. MS
    Requires a certain amount of digital literacy to truly understand what AR is

Its great to see app developers like OrcaMD taking full advantage of the capabilities of modern mobile technology. Hopefully, other app developers will sit up and take note to see just how effective these tools can be when used appropriately.

I see the future of patient education taking advantage of tools like augmented reality. The ability to combine augmented reality with personalized radiological images such as IOS Fixator opens up an exciting new paradigm for patient education.

Some good examples of how apps can help in the care of certain patient conditions. The article makes the important point that in order for doctors to be able to recommend these applications to patients doctors need advice on the apps too. This is an important consideration for the future, despite the claim the author makes about the "digitally savvy" next generation of doctors. If we want the next generation to be "digitally savvy" about these types of innovations we need to incorporate learning about technology skills and adoption more in their medical training.

5 Great iPad Apps to Explore Human Body in 3D ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

5 Great iPad Apps to Explore Human Body in 3D ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"Science is one of the areas where the impact of technology has been markedly observed. It triggered an unprecedented revolution and reshaped people's knowledge about the world. It has also enhanced the way science is being instructed inside schools and colleges. Experimentations are being facilitated by the use of technology and students are able to learn and get engaged in simulated experiments that mimic the real life problems. This revolution is being carried on to the mobile platforms. There are now several science apps that students and teachers can use to perform a wide variety of science tasks. Below, for instance, is a set of apps that enable students to explore the human body in 3D. Check them out and share with us if you have any additions. Enjoy"
