How the diabetes online community uses social media

How the diabetes online community uses social media | Internet Medicine | Scoop.it

Attention, lovers of punny Twitter handles: Digitally savvy diabetics will thrill and delight. @crankypancreas, @_diabadass, and @ninjabetic are part of an enthusiastic group of bloggers and tweeters who share their stories, exchange articles, and cultivate diabetes wit online.

 

But, sadly, their humor goes unheard by the doctors, researchers, and health-care companies who work on the disease. Online, these two communities are largely separate: While diabetics and their friends and family usually discuss what it's like to live with the disease, the professional medical community often circulates research findings and informational resources.

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia | Internet Medicine | Scoop.it

"The rise of the Maker has been one of the most exciting educational trends of the past few years. A Maker is an individual who communicates, collaborates, tinkers, fixes, breaks, rebuilds, and constructs projects for the world around him or her. A Maker, re-cast into a classroom, has a name that we all love: a learner. A Maker, just like a true learner, values the process of making as much as the product. In the classroom, the act of Making is an avenue for a teacher to unlock the learning potential of her or his students in a way that represents many of the best practices of educational pedagogy. A Makerspace classroom has the potential to create life-long learners through exciting, real-world projects."

A doctor's prescription for social media

A doctor's prescription for social media | Internet Medicine | Scoop.it

As an experiment,  I immersed myself in social media for the past three months.  I started this blog, joined Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, bought a domain name, and posted on Facebook for the first time in years.  Even within this short period of time, I reaped tangible benefits: I interacted with top physicians from across the world, kept up with the  medical literature, participated in discussions with patients about how how rheumatic diseases affect their lives, joined webinars about improving the patient experience, and provided educational information to physicians and patients about autoinflammatory diseases, my clinical interest.  Social media has changed the way that I think about and practice medicine, and it’s only been a few months.


I presented the results of my experiment in social media as a Rheumatology Grand Rounds lecture at my hospital.  I argued that leveraging social media will make us better physicians.  Some in the audience were skeptical, others asked me for a written guide on how to start.  This is that guide.

Modular smartphones, onboard sensors, and personalised mobile health care

Modular smartphones, onboard sensors, and personalised mobile health care | Internet Medicine | Scoop.it

A month ago I saw a video on Youtube about creating modular smartphones, created by Phonebloks. Phoneblok puts forth their idea that such a product could reduce waste, and allow highly customizable products for smartphone users who utilize their phone for different purposes. In essence, this platform moves beyond a modifiable user interface that focuses on apps, and focuses on a system with modifiable hardware to supplement those apps.

 

While the premise was interesting, I did not give it much thought due to the fact I could not envision any smartphone developer investing into such a product. Needless to say, I was wrong since Motorola hasannounced it will be creating modular smartphones with its Project Ara. Motorola’s idea is to create an endoskeleton that will provide the key components of a phone with modules that may be attached.

 

Such a modifiable phone would allow users to create a phone that will be tailored to their primary user preferences. For instance, someone who may like to take pictures with their phone could invest into a better camera module and more storage to keep the pictures.

The iPad as a Tool for Creation to Strengthen Learning - Mind/Shift | Internet Medicine | Scoop.it

"In this four-part series, we are using the Someday/Monday concept to explore four dimensions of using tablets, such as iPads, in educational settings. We will do this by examining how teachers can take students on a journey from the consumption of media to curation, creation, and connection. In the first part of this series, we used the Someday/Monday template to explore Consumption http://bit.ly/1bbz1tm . During the second, we examined Curation http://bit.ly/1bbz8Ff ; and the evolving role of the teacher as a curator of learning objects. This week, we will address Creation, examining what is possible when we empower students and teachers as innovators with iPads and other mobile devices."
