Mary Starry's insight:

I had no idea there were so many tools available to allow small groups of people to interact together in real-time.  These could be used for small group discussions with students or with other faculty.

Do Learners Really Know Best? Urban Legends in Education

This article takes a critical look at three pervasive urban legends in education about the nature of learners, learning, and teaching and looks at what educational and psychological research has to say about them.

Via Deirdre Bonnycastle
Mary Starry's insight:

The three urban myths are the concept of "digital learners", the concept of individuals having different  "learning styles" and the concept that each learner knows best how to "self educate".

 

Learning styles is one I've argued against before, but seems to be a very pervasive myth in pharmacy education.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Mary Starry's insight:

If you're interested in the concept of learning games, this is a great list of some already out there.  Some are healthcare related, such as Pandemic 2 with a created virus or bacteria leading to a worldwide pandemic and Profit Seed dealing with genetics. There are quite a few social activism games such as Ayiti: The Cost of Life dealing with poverty in Haiti and Fatworld on nutrition.

Still hear many pharmacy faculty discuss concept of "learning styles" and "learning inventory" to determine how each student learns best. Instead we need to focus on learning approaches that increase retention through active involvement in the learning process.

How Does Electronic Reading Affect Comprehension?

How Does Electronic Reading Affect Comprehension? | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it

"Although electronic texts have been with us for many decades, in the past few years electronic reading has become increasingly popular. The ready availability of mobile, connected devices like smartphones and tablets, along with dedicated ereaders like the Kindle and Nook, have moved electronic reading out from behind a desk into the environment. This change has brought increasing attention to the differences between reading in print and reading via digital devices."

 


Via John Evans, StudentSupport@EdinburghCollege
Mary Starry's insight:

At our college of pharmacy, many of the textbooks are available to students as online versions through Pharmacy Library or AccessPharmacy.  Few students actually purchase the textbooks to read. While some in education are arguing there is a benefit of paper over electronic, others question that conclusion.  


Is there a benefit in terms of comprehension and retention of the information if it is being read on paper versus on an electronic device? That is an excellent question we need more research on!!

How the Power of Interest Drives Learning

How the Power of Interest Drives Learning | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it

If catching people’s interest is about seizing attention and providing stimulation, holding it is about finding deeper meaning and purpose in the exercise of interest. Caution is required here, however. Research has found that infusing a subject with meaning by stressing its future utility can produce the opposite of its intended effect.


Via Nik Peachey
Mary Starry's insight:

Several good take away messages here.  Liked the idea of focusing more on the questions we're asking.  Also found it interesting that students lose interest if we tell them how this will apply in their lives, while asking them to identify how this concept or task will be used in their future lives results in increased interest.

Plotagon is a tool that lets anyone create an animated movie directly from a written screenplay. Write your story, choose actors, environments and music. Press play and your movie is done. It's that simple.

Plotagon is completely free! It is in a beta stage, but you can start using it right now.

>Plotagon application for Mac or PC (system requirements).

>Comes with 5 characters and 6 environments.

>Export your movies and share them with the world.

>Expand with characters and environments from the built-in store.


Via Baiba Svenca, Tibshirani
Mary Starry's insight:

This could be a great way to create patient to pharmacist interactions or even interactions between a team of healthcare providers.  Instead of writing out a case for students, you could produce an interaction for them to watch and then have them create a SOAP note. 

 

Would eliminate the need to have simulated patients in some cases, although certainly not all.

 

I am planning to work with this and will share what I come up with!!

David Thornburg: Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today

David Thornburg: Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
A conversation with David Thornburg about designing a better classroom

 

“Of all the places I remember from my childhood,” David Thornburg writes, “school was the most depressing.”  The now award-winning educational futurist and creator of the “educational holodeck,” Thornburg’s early experience in the classroom prompted him to help others rethink traditional classroom design. In his latest book, From the Campfire to the Holodeck: Creating Engaging and Powerful 21st Century Learning Environments, Thornburg outlines four learning models: the traditional “campfire,” or lecture-based design; the “watering hole,” or social learning; the “cave,” a place to quietly reflect; and “life”—where ideas are tested.

Annette Schmeling's comment, November 20, 2013 10:59 AM
Engagement is the key. When the teacher, or professor, themselves have fully engaged with the material and used multiple senses in mastering the content they are more apt to spark the passion and interest for others. Even their lectures will be more engaging.
