Social Bookmarking Explained for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Social Bookmarking Explained for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Leading Edge Learning Technology | Scoop.it

"Social bookmarking is a new concept that has seen the light with the emergence of bookmarking services like the ones I cited below.Semantically speaking, ' social bookmarking' is made up of the the term " social " which is related to society and general interactions between people, and the verb " to bookmark " (used here as a gerund ending in ing) which has to do with recording and/or saving content for both later use and quick access. Weaving the semantic reference of the two words results in social bookmarking as we know it today : a collaborative and collective saving and sharing of web content."

5 Rules To Guide Your Approach to Learning in Social Media for your Practice

5 Rules To Guide Your Approach to Learning in Social Media for your Practice | Leading Edge Learning Technology | Scoop.it

Blogs, podcasts, and other social media platforms in medical education, known collectively as Free Open Access Meducation (FOAM), are becoming increasingly popular and integrated into daily learning habits. Through various push technologies, these resources come to you in the form of RSS feeds, podcast tools, and other apps. Do you have a mental checklist to help you determine whether the content is trustworthy and accurate? How do you process the information from FOAM sites? 

 

Here are 5 rules that we at ALiEM follow as lifelong learners ourselves when learning from other FOAM sites:

1. ALWAYS READ AND LISTEN WITH SKEPTICISM.

Read more about the topic using several references, such as journal articles, textbooks, and other social media sources. ‘Triangulate’ your information using multiple references. Be suspicious if the resource has no references.

2. ASK QUESTIONS BEFORE IMPLEMENTING.

Check with your colleagues in the department or on Twitter. Ask clarification questions on the blog or podcast site. Does this fit into your practice given the available resources that you have? Is this in your scope of practice? Is this appropriate for your level of training? What are the risks to your patient and you?

3. WHEN IN DOUBT, LEAVE IT OUT.

For not-yet-mainstream practices, such as rapid-rule out troponins for AMI, hands-on defibrillation, or PESI scoring for outpatient management of pulmonary embolism, if you are in doubt, don’t incorporate it into your practice until there’s more literature out there. The same is true for non-traditional procedural techniques. It is great to know about what innovations are on the knowledge horizon, but being the first to implement it isn’t wise.

4. ASK YOURSELF – IS THIS AN N=1 INNOVATIVE TIP?

Many N=1 innovations are worthwhile to know about. Many have a high reward and low risk profile, such as using parts of your hand as a makeshift ruler to guestimate wound lengths. Others are the opposite with low reward and high risk profiles. The key is differentiating between the two. Use common sense. Refer to #3.

5. INVOLVE YOUR PATIENT (AND CONSULTANTS) IN THE DISCUSSION.

As with all patient-care activities, you should be involving your patient in the discussion around your treatment.  If you are trying something ‘new’ or ‘innovative’, admit to your patient that the solution to their problem is not well studied… and therefore you can journey with them towards trialing a new method. Document your shared decisions this way.  Make it a truthful, informed (or ‘as-informed-as-possible’) discussion.
