Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 21, 5:34 PM

The use of mobile technology has increased, esp. in locations like Africa, and this is changing the way people learn. It is important to note that the mobile technology that is in used is often less "sophisticated and powerful than cell phones and have fewer features." Yet the tiny screen on the cell phone is a window to the world.

This post lists seven people/organizations from around the world who are making a difference.

It then goes on to look at what you can do with mobile learning to make a difference. There are 13 suggestions. Three are below.

* Encourage the use of apps that work on cell phones and basic phones alike.

* Create open, educational resources with a mobile, international  audience in mind.

* Spend more time explaining content than creating it.

Each of the suggestions above are described in more detail as are ten additional suggestions found in the post.

Colors are important to making things look good, whether it's the clothes you wear or the presentation you give at work. But not everyone instinctively knows that orange and blue is a perfect combination. If you can't trust your own judgement, understand and rely on the basics of color theory to always pick the right colors.

3D-printing may revolutionize medical education

3D-printing may revolutionize medical education | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

A kit of 3D-printed anatomical body parts could revolutionize medical education and training, according to its developers at Monash University.

Professor Paul McMenamin, Director of the University’s Centre for Human Anatomy Education, said the simple and cost-effective anatomical kit would dramatically improve trainee doctors’ and other health professionals’ knowledge and could even contribute to the development of new surgical treatments.

 

“Many medical schools report either a shortage of cadavers, or find their handling and storage too expensive as a result of strict regulations governing where cadavers can be dissected,” he said.

 

“Without the ability to look inside the body and see the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels, it’s incredibly hard for students to understand human anatomy. We believe our version, which looks just like the real thing, will make a huge difference.”

 

The 3D Printed Anatomy Series kit, to go on sale later this year, could have particular impact in developing countries where cadavers aren’t readily available, or are prohibited for cultural or religious reasons.

 

After scanning real anatomical specimens with either a CT or surface laser scanner, the body parts are 3D printed either in a plaster-like powder or in plastic, resulting in high resolution, accurate color reproductions.

 

Further details have been published online in the journal Anatomical Sciences Education.
