Welcome to Medical Education and Online Tools!

Welcome to Medical Education and Online Tools! | Medical education and online tools | Scoop.it

I am a senior lecturer and consultant in medical biochemistry and metabolic medicine in Cardiff, and have a growing interest in the use of technology in medical education. Here I have curated a variety of web-based tools that can be used for educational purposes, along with websites that support their use and provide guidance for clinical teachers and students in how to use them. It can be time consuming introducing new approaches into our practice, but hopefully this webpage will make the process of finding and using the right one easier.

 

You can find information about the Department of Medical Biochemistry in Cardiff University from the link here, which includes a link to my personal profile.

Each of the posts have been reviewed, and so should contain good, useful, and interesting information. If any of them don't please let me know!

The content is searchable - click on the "Filter" button above and enter your search terms.

If you want updates, you can register on Scoop.it and click on the blue "Follow" button at the top right. You can also follow me on Twitter @DuncanMedBio where I will also be sharing posts.

A curation tool that allows you to link together your curated "pearls" into "trees".  Quite a nice idea as it makes the relations between topics more visible. Like all such tools, it also allows you to share your "pearls" and view others with similar themes to yours.

Technology in (Medical) Education: Tools for Leveraging Open Education Resources

Technology in (Medical) Education: Tools for Leveraging Open Education Resources | Medical education and online tools | Scoop.it

We are experiencing the democratization of education.  There are numerous free and open resources for learning on the Web:

Khan AcademyYouTube UniversityTEDTalks While these sites have terrific videos, they have a limitation inherent to such content; they tend to be linear and difficult to change once published.  In order for them to be more useful to students, the teacher often may want some control over the content so she is not stuck with what the creator of the video created or intended.She may want to use only a part of the content of the video, and then link it to another part of another videoShe may want to add some questions or additional content to the videoShe may want her students to create a project that is like a collage - containing parts of videos they find and stitch together.The good news is that there are now many services that are popping up to help

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | Medical education and online tools | Scoop.it

Why Use Scoopit?

At the end of the day, you’re “doing” a lot actually simply by using a technology like scoopit. You’re modeling the proper use of social media, can help students understand writing for an audience, keywords and vocabulary understanding (and the aforementioned audience awareness), exploration and gathering of online resources, image and element impact, collaboration and community environments.

Innovations in Education - Students as Curators: Moving Towards Personalized Learning

Duncan Cole's insight:

This is a thought provoking post on student curation, with a helpful conceptualisation of the differences between directive and discovery learning.  Curation tools certainly have the potential to support student research, and they also promote sharing and collaboration.  The idea that the "textbook" of the future might be essentially a curation platform is also an interesting one.  It seems to me that the ideas put forward are more like a digital notebook but possibly with more sharing features, or perhaps a wiki if many students can contribute content.  It is an approach we could explore further in higher education, but as with all such ideas we will still need to consider where such approaches would be best used, if at all.

Barbara Bray's curator insight, May 2, 2013 12:44 AM

This quote by Mary Beth Hertz in this article where learners can personalize their learning as curators. 

I imagine a techbook looking like a science notebook or journal. It would be a place where students can take notes, pin articles and videos, record experiments and discussions or lectures, organize data tied to these experiences sketch out ideas in words and pictures, and send and receive emails or other messages.

Storify - Create stories using social media

Storify - Create stories using social media | Medical education and online tools | Scoop.it
Create stories using social media. Turn what people post on social media into compelling stories. Collect the best photos, video, tweets and more to publish them as simple, beautiful stories that can be embedded anywhere.
Duncan Cole's insight:

This is a curation tool that facilitates arranging webpages, videos, images, and social media conversations into a story, in which you can also add comments and expand upon as you wish. In a sense this gets to a core task in curation, which is to select objects in a collection to tell a specific story. Lots of other curation platforms don't really do this - you can bookmark websites, critically comment, and make it all searchable, but platforms often don't have this feature of telling a story.  Of course, this isn't always essential, but I quite like this approach as one way of putting together a short online tutorial - for examples see my calcium disorders and salt and water homeostasis tutorials on my clinical biochemistry scoop.it page.
