ECG Zone is a brand new site designed to help practical ECG interpretation. Read through our cases, review the ECGs and listen to the video explanations.

What Creating Sketchnotes Taught Me About #Learning

What Creating Sketchnotes Taught Me About #Learning | #FOAMed - Free Open Access Medical Education Resources | Scoop.it
There are people who stick to their primary pursuits for long and then there are those whose energy keeps changing direction. Between these two extremes, there are people who stick to their primary pursuit but still manage to go wherever their energy takes them. I have figured out that I belong to
NLafferty's insight:

I've often thought it would be great to see students and doctors create sketch notes to support medical education.  Think of all those back of a prescription pad scribbles that have been done over the years and if they'd been captured and shared as FOAMed.  There are sites like Sketch Medicine previously scooped here but would be great to see more people sharing MedEd sketch notes.

101 Innovations in Scholarly Communication: How researchers are getting to grip with the myriad of new tools. | #FOAMed - Free Open Access Medical Education Resources | Scoop.it
There has been a surge of new scholarly communication tools in recent years. But how are researchers incorporating these tools into their research workflows? Jeroen Bosman and Bianca Kramer are con…
NLafferty's insight:

We use a simple model to get a grip on this abundance and variety of tools. The G-E-O model looks at whether the tool makes science Good, Efficient or Open. Tools that make science more open are for instance those facilitating open access, open data, open peer review or even open drafting. Also many outreach tools contribute to openness.

Medisense

NLafferty's insight:

Medisense is a project run by junior doctors and medical students who have tired of the same old ways to learn. Evidence suggests that students learn in their own individual way: some through visual, auditory or kinaesthetic means. Medisense aims to harness new technologies to help all medical students learn in fresh, exciting ways. Medicine is the most fascinating and dynamic subject out there: Medisense will help it come to life!

NLafferty's curator insight, January 7, 4:07 PM

In some senses this is already starting to happen and it's being driven by individuals at the grass roots engaging in learning networks and communities like #FOAMed.  Not sure many organisations are grasping that this type of learning is better than the typical click, click, click learning.
