The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer | Medical Simulation | Scoop.it

"The difference between assessment of learning and assessment for learning is a crucial one, in many ways indicative of an important shift in education.

Traditionally, tests have told teachers and parents how a student “does,” then offers a very accessible point of data (usually percentage correct and subsequent letter grade) that is reported to parents as a performance indicator."

"Assessment for learning" versus "assessment of learning" is also promoted as a key component of the learning portfolio all colleges of pharmacy need to have to demonstrate student achievement.

I have practiced a system that covers four of the 5 key strategies for many years starting at five years of age.  I would not teach any other way. With this kind of assessment students after seven years of age can lead parent teacher conferences with ease and confidence. Had a dad in tears once who confessed it was the first time his son had talked meaningfully to him about his learning. Then I was in tears too....

A good little diagram but it does not address the issue of how to do it..it requires modelling, first by the teacher, then slowly devolving the responsibility to the learner, and focus on one subject area at a time e.g. Literacy . In my experience it also requires set aside time with each student to assess together, recording what has been discussed so it is not forgotten. I am talking about elementary learners here..

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Preparing for STEM Lessons on Coding with Hopscotch for iPad

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Preparing for STEM Lessons on Coding with Hopscotch for iPad | Medical Simulation | Scoop.it

"This evening I’ve been playing with the free iPad app “Hopscotch,” which I’m planning to use for a four part / two week introductory unit on coding on the iPad with my 4th and 5th grade STEM students. (@iesSTEM) I’ve worked quite a bit with Scratch software from MIT, but this is my first time to “seriously play” with Hopscotch. Hopscotch is similar to Scratch, as a block-based (or icon-based) programming environment, but it is MUCH more limited with fewer available coding blocks. Despite these limitations, it appears to be a great app to use when introducing students to coding. And, it’s FREE! Since I have an iPad cart to use with students in my STEM classroom, but not full-day access to one of our school’s Windows-based computer labs, an iPad-based coding solution / app like Hopscotch is preferable for me now over Scratch. (Scratch is still flash-based, so although it’s web-based it doesn’t work completely on iPads. I’ve tried using Scratch on flash-friendly iPad browser apps like iSwifter and Puffin, but haven’t found the experience very good… yet.)"

Motion Computing's Mobile Technology Helps Prepare Paramedics, Nurses for EMS Emergencies

Motion Computing's Mobile Technology Helps Prepare Paramedics, Nurses for EMS Emergencies | Medical Simulation | Scoop.it

Motion Computing, a mobile technology provider, has announced that McLennan Community College in Waco, TX, is now using Motion tablets to control Gaumard® simulation mannequins to help prepare medical field students for a variety of field and in-facility treatment scenarios.  Approximately 3100 students a year pass through the simulation training areas, including nursing, paramedic, and surgical students.

Simulation training is a key part of a healthcare professional’s education.  Before McLennan had the Motion tablets controlling the mannequins’ actions, simulation mannequins were tethered, so the instructor had to manually control them and run the scenario next to the bedside. This decreased the sense of realism.  Today, Motion tablets are equipped with Gaumard software designed to power the mannequins’ actions through radio frequency and monitor vital signs through a Wi-Fi connection.  The communication, power supply, and compressor remain inside the mannequin, making the training more comparable to working with a real patient.  McLennan faculty and staff program the mannequins to behave a certain way and respond accordingly based on treatment provided by the student.  Faculty can either program the mannequins ahead of time or make adjustments in real-time for active response simulations.

Volgens Hattie (2009) leren studenten  enorm van inhoudelijke feedback van docenten, maar ook van lessen geven aan elkaar. ik ga starten met hiermee experimenteren! #mli #yam

Hmmm...maybe a lesson where students create lessons? You would definitely know if students knew the material!

Why Simulation Training is Important to the Medical Industry

Why Simulation Training is Important to the Medical Industry | Medical Simulation | Scoop.it

With the advances made in simulation technology over the past two decades, the use ofsimulation training in the health care industry has increased dramatically. In the interests of patient safety, though, it is vitally important that more medical educational institutions and health care facilities institute an even wider variety of medical simulation training programs.

 

Simulation Training in Health Care

 
Recognizing that health care is also a complex and high-risk industry, health education professionals have adopted more and more elements of simulation for medical skill enhancement.

 

Advanced digital health technologies have now become available for training doctors, nurses, EMTs and other medical staff as well. Medical schools and training hospitals can use highly realistic simulations of patients and medical environments to improve training and the practice of high-risk medical procedures that can negatively impact patient outcomes if performed incorrectly on real-life patients.

Real games for health and the trouble with gamification

Real games for health and the trouble with gamification | Medical Simulation | Scoop.it

Motivating behavior change has long been one of the biggest challenges and opportunities in mobile health. One avenue for addressing that challenge is to take lessons from a field that doesn’t suffer from any engagement problems: gaming.

 

For the first year, the mHealth Summit 2012 featured a Games for Health pavilion, focused on companies using games and the lessons learned from gaming to innovate mobile health. Games at the conference seem to fit into two broad categories: simulations that increase readiness and preparedness for medical events and gamified tracking and motivating apps.

 

A lot of the energy in gamification is focused on using game mechanics to motivate people to healthy behaviors, such as staying active. Ben Sawyer, co-founder of Games for Health, said this is a natural space for mobile gaming.


“There are some really uniquely mobile ideas,” he said. “The [kind] of exercise that hits the largest part of the population is walking, so we see a lot of games built around that. This is something that really speaks to the ‘health games for everyone’ notion.”
