Annalisa Manca's insight:

"It is only right that we continue to expose and challenge terms we believe to be erroneous, but we should also acknowledge the rhetorical roles they play at all levels and areas of academic (and non-academic) discourse, and adopt both a critical understanding and inclusive approach when contributing to the ongoing dialogue."

Beyond institutions- personal learning in a networked world.-by Stephen  Downes

David Parkes's curator insight, July 11, 12:53 AM

Excellent challenging manifesto from Stephen Downes - todays online learning models are yesterdays with new names

NLafferty's curator insight, July 11, 2:54 AM
Lots of useful references in this presentation by Stephen Downes to follow up and read round. Also Downes helpfully makes the distinction between personal and personalised learning which I think are being used interchangeably in some contexts without individuals realising they are different things.

Student approaches for learning in medicine: What does it tell us about the informal curriculum?

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.

Richard Smith: Teaching is stand-up comedy

Richard Smith: Teaching is stand-up comedy | Social Media and learning in medical education and healthcare, theory and practice | Scoop.it

This post is not directly related to Social Media or technology, but it is very thought-provoking. Teaching is a difficult task. Teaching doctors and medical students may sometimes be even more challenging. How can educators make sure they effectively engage their audience? I like Mr Smith's honest thoughts on his experience.

Imagine yourself doing rounds during your internal medicine rotation and after an interesting case, you can immediately dig deeper on your digital copy of Harrison’s Principles of Medicine and build up on what you’ve just saw, then when it is still fresh in your head, no need to wait until you get home and maybe forget some details.

Building Democratic Learning

Building Democratic Learning | Social Media and learning in medical education and healthcare, theory and practice | Scoop.it

I’ve been participating in MOOCs and working on various #open #learning strategies and projects, for some time; I don’t think MOOCs are much about learning at all; they are now content-driven #edspam and work in similar ways to spam, with a very limited ‘completion’ rate.

Using Social Media (and the DOC) to Gain Clinical Insight

Using Social Media (and the DOC) to Gain Clinical Insight | Social Media and learning in medical education and healthcare, theory and practice | Scoop.it

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.

Critical Review of Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age

In his 2005 article Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age, Siemens outlined a new way of thinking about learning based on the recent advances in information technology. He argues that this new theory, connectivism, supersedes previous learning theories, including behaviourism, cognitivism, and contructivism. In this post, I am seeking to further my understanding of this new theory, examine its limitations, and consider its relevance to both classroom teaching as well as knowledge management practices within organizations.

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?

The LMS was once the undisputed center of the digital learning ecosystem. But on many campuses, the situation has changed such that the campus online learning environment might be better viewed as a continuum, with the LMS at one end and a student’s own collection of applications, tools, and websites at the other.

Not related to IT or social media (not directly at least), but this article is very interesting... It explores the
elements that contribute to medical students’
sense of professional identity and investigates
the concept of social exclusivity and how this
might relate to students’ development of their
identity as medical professionals.
