Subtext to build interaction around online text

Subtext to build interaction around online text | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it

Subtext is a free iPad app that allows classroom groups to exchange ideas in the pages of digital texts. You can also layer in enrichment materials, assignments and quizzes—opening up almost limitless opportunities to engage students and foster analysis and writing skills.

Mary Starry's insight:

This could be a unique tool for allowing multiple students in a group to interact with a journal article or an assignment.  Can also embed stimulating questions for students to reflect on or just multiple choice questions to identify whether they are understanding what they are reading.  Plan to try this app out!

iPads In Health And Medicine: More Than An Information Revolution?

iPads In Health And Medicine: More Than An Information Revolution? | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | Scoop.it
Take Yale School of Medicine, for instance. Last fall, they gave each of their 520 medical students an iPad and an external wireless keyboard. They will no longer receive printed course materials. iPads will be the primary source of medical teaching.

Via Deirdre Bonnycastle
Mary Starry's insight:

Sounds like purchasing iPads for all students by medical school programs has resulted in both expected and nonexpected benefits. Also describes some nifty apps some hospital IT departments have developed. The one for identifying where pain is located and then rating it with a color scale sounds very easy for patients.

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | 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."


Via Beth Dichter, Dennis T OConnor
Mary Starry's insight:

"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.

Interesting article on assessment strategies.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 6, 2013 8:40 PM

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....

Aunty Alice's curator insight, November 21, 2013 8:03 PM

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..

David Swaddle's curator insight, September 17, 2013 9:50 PM

This sounds like a great CPD initiative that will work at many levels.

 

Essentially, one a month the MEdiC team pose a challenging hypothetical dilemma that has been suggested by their community of educators. It is then discussed, with medical education experts providing extra input.

 

Questions from the community of Emergency Medicine to the community of EM, suggested by the community and moderated by the community. One to watch.

 

Are there any specialists out there who would like to comment on the quality of the end product? Does it acheive the challenging, deep-thought conversations that it sets out to stimulate?

Technology is advancing continously; therefore it makes sense for educational systems to keep up with technology. This should be done because its is predominately the youth who enjoy advancing with technology. Therefore if more education systems use iTunesU students will be able to learn their work efficiently since they will understand it more easily than a dull textbook. If institutions adopt this new tool it will make vast changes in both the teacher's and students's education. This tool is very easy to use and is more convenient than compiling numerous notes and books. The only downside is that iTunesU is an Apple product. Therefore only those with iPads,iPhones or any other Apple products will be able to use iTunesU. Apple products are not necessarily cheap; therefore not all institutions would be able to use this new handy tool.
