Online Learning: A User’s Guide to Forking Education | Online Learning | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | Social Media and learning in medical education and healthcare, theory and practice | Scoop.it
Hybrid Pedagogy is an academic and networked journal of teaching and technology that combines the strands of critical and digital pedagogy to arrive at the best social and civil uses of technology and digital media in education.
Annalisa Manca's insight:

"Draconian learning management systems, hierarchical discussion forum tools, and automated grading systems replace the playful work of teachers and students with overly simplified algorithms that interface with far too few of the dynamic variables that make learning so visceral and lively. There will be no going back from this fundamental error in judgment. Within even just a few years, structures will be too decidedly built, customs and norms too firmly entrenched. I worry that we may be too far gone already. But, we need to hesitate at this very important threshold, for even just a moment, and decide carefully how to proceed."

Social media in healthcare education, inclusion or just distraction?

Social media in healthcare education, inclusion or just distraction? | Social Media and learning in medical education and healthcare, theory and practice | Scoop.it

Social media is pervasive, even in healthcare. As an early adopter, I witnessed how social media went mainstream as it integrates into our lives. I’ve also been a witness to the many challenges and opportunities social media presents as it slowly encroaches into the silos of our daily lives.

My struggle though is not always about social media integration or the technical skills needed to do so. I have have always been preoccupied on how social media could or should enhance my learning- to reflective thinking rather than just information, knowledge more than opinion and in healthcare, clinical and patient skills rather than textbook regurgitations.

In #HealthXPh, we’ve previously discussed why social media is of value to healthcare. We’ve tackled how social media is used as a tool to enhance education and build interactivity to our traditional learning styles. Social media has shown promise in areas  collaborative learning using user generated materials while creating meaningful engagements in the healthcare sector.

There are stinging questions to the value social media in educating healthcare or would be healthcare professionals. Would incorporating social media in healthcare education really improve the knowledge, attitudes, values and skills, of future healthcare professionals?

There were studies that tries to understand the challenges and opportunities of  incorporating healthcare social media in their medical curriculum. But the “infancy” of social media and the lack of rigorous controlled studies eludes a clear answer at this moment. The answer to these questions ( if ever it could be answered) may be found in the next generation of healthcare professionals.

In spite these issues, healthcare institutions abroad began incorporating healthcare social media in their learning curriculum. In the Philippines, social media healthcare is not in any medical or healthcare curriculum. Why? Why are current healthcare students taking social media seriously?

When asked, most nursing and medical students would answer, “I have no time for such”.  If it’s not included in the curriculum we’re not going to spend time learning it. Surely if our medical educators didn’t include it in our curriculum, they probably didn’t find any value for it in our education” .

I’m not an expert in healthcare education, but I do understand the problems besetting an institution in training future healthcare professionals. Identifying what’s important to the KAVS learning of healthcare students is difficult enough, incorporating a complex, learning resource such as social media doesn’t make it easier, at least to most healthcare educators that I know. It would take a generation of physicians to find that out.

I have a balance of views regarding inclusion of social media in the healthcare curriculum. But, if we don’t bring the discussion now, we may never find out in the next generation of healthcare professionals.

Join us this Saturday August 8, 2015 9PM as we discuss the value of healthcare social media in medical education. Is it a distinction or just a distraction?

T1: Should healthcare social media be included in medical/healthcare curriculum? Why or why not?T2: What are the challenges and opportunities in incorporating social media in our healthcare curriculum?T3. How do you measure the impact of incorporating social media into the healthcare professional’s education?

As a closing thought (CT) please give an area in the education of future healthcare professionals, where social media has the most / least impact.

Curriculum planners should examine the level of use of informal learning activities in their schools, and investigate whether this is to enhance student progress, a result of perceived weakness in the delivery and effectiveness of formal resources, or to overcome anxiety about the volume of work expected by medical programs.

Social media can be complex and cumbersome. However, if used effectively, healthcare providers can become more educated, and perhaps more compassionate clinicians. There are two ways in which I have been able to use Medicine 2.0 applications to gain clinical insight: tracking research and information generated by other health care professionals, and reading about the healthcare experience from the patient perspective.

Discussing Behavioral Health on Social Media: What to Consider

Discussing Behavioral Health on Social Media: What to Consider | Social Media and learning in medical education and healthcare, theory and practice | Scoop.it

While social networks can help improve the public’s perceptions about behavioral health, they also have the potential to do harm.

For those living with behavioral health issues, sharing personal information on social networks might have a significant impact on their employment and relationships.

As a result, it is important for behavioral health providers to help individuals understand the possible risks surrounding what they share in social networks. These risks are often acknowledged when registering to an online community or as a disclaimer for agreement before posting.

While it can be helpful to share personal stories and connect with like-minded people, it’s possible that a story told to your closest friends could end up having a much more public audience. What’s more, once something is posted, it’s hard to take it back.

With that in mind, behavioral health providers should remind people of the following when they are discussing behavioral health issues on social networks:

If you post information using your real name, it’s possible that information you share will be attributed to you and could affect your employment status or relationships. If you’re concerned about these issues, it might be best to post using an alias — or not post at all.When sharing stories about other people, seek their permission first.Because social networks typically allow comments or replies, some users might post unsavory or negative comments. Others might have differing opinions. Before you post, be prepared for such responses.Asking questions or seeking advice can be helpful. But because anyone can respond, the responses you receive might be off target and not informed by experience or expertise. It’s always best to seek for advice about behavioral health concerns directly from trained experts rather than through social networks.

In addition, for those who care about promoting a positive dialogue about behavioral health, remember to encourage positive conversations and to connect those who have behavioral health concerns to the appropriate resources for help.

However, you must be careful to ensure that you’re engaging in an effective way — otherwise you can turn a well-intentioned post into something harmful.

“Digital media is shareable and permanent, which means when posting about behavioral health on social media, your content can have a large impact,” says SAMHSA public health advisor Kaitlin Abell. “Anyone can use their online presence to share accurate and respectful content about behavioral health and connect followers with quality resources and information.”

To have a positive impact on social media, Ms. Abell says it’s important to remember that language matters.

For example, use “person first” language when talking about mental and substance use disorders. Instead of referring to someone as a “depressed man”, it’s better to say a “man with depression.”

“The good news is that social media can improve understanding of mental and substance use disorders and encourage people to seek help,” says Ms. Abell.

Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education

Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education | Social Media and learning in medical education and healthcare, theory and practice | Scoop.it

"As educators we must be learners first. If we are to be better educators, we must first be better learners. We may not always have a choice in what we learn. After so long not being involved with learning, many educators do not know how much they do not know. How can they make decisions on what they need to learn, if they are unaware of the existence of many of the things they need to know?" This applies to the use of technology in teaching: how can we facilitate students in using social media in learning if we don't engage with them first, in our everyday learning practice?
