Professor Robin Watts guided a project investigating the possibilities of using the 3D virtual world of Second Life ® in teaching and learning for nurses and pharmacy students.

 

Students and tutors can review their progress and reflect upon the decisions made about treating the patient. All activity in the clinic is logged and connects to a Moodle (LMS) installation via an opensource mashup called SLOODLE.

Smart physical training in virtual reality

Smart physical training in virtual reality | Simulation in Health Sciences Education | Scoop.it
A new system in a virtual training room is helping users practice and improve sports exercises and other motor activities: six research groups from the Cluster of Excellence Cognitive Interaction Technology (CITEC) at Bielefeld University are working on the ICSPACE project to develop this virtual coaching space. CITEC is funding this large-scale research project with 1.6 million Euro and it will run until 2017. During a project presentation the researchers showcased what their system is capable of. Using the example of a squat exercise, they presented the new technology, which will help not only athletes, but also physical rehabilitation patients learn movement exercises and correct their mistakes. In a new "research_TV" report from Bielefeld University, the coordinators of the project also explain how their new system works.

Revolutionary Learning: Using Games and Simulations to Solve Critical Issues in Public Health

Revolutionary Learning: Using Games and Simulations to Solve Critical Issues in Public Health | Simulation in Health Sciences Education | Scoop.it
Participate/ Play/Produce – in a Symposium of Learning Adventures

The Ebola scare this past year, the heroin epidemic in the northeast, and the surprisingly high infant mortality rate have heightened awareness of precarious public health. How can a revolutionary new educational approach to these issues through games and simulations provide inroads to solving these critical problems? Join a group of stellar game and simulation designers, educators, and public health experts in a dynamic hands-on exploration of creative problem solving.

The keynote address will be presented by Sharon Sloane, President and CEO, WILL Interactive.

Medical Education in the New Millennium | Stanford Online

Medical Education in the New Millennium | Stanford Online | Simulation in Health Sciences Education | Scoop.it

This interdisciplinary course features talks from thought leaders and innovators from medical education, instructional design, cognitive science, online learning, and emerging technology. Over the course of eleven weeks, we'll consider how to build educational experiences that address the unique learning preferences of today's Millennial medical students and residents. As the volume of new medical knowledge outpaces our ability to organize and retain it, how might educators disrupt outdated practices through thoughtful use of technology and learning design? How might MOOCs, social media, simulation and virtual reality change the face of medical education? How might we make learning continuous, engaging, and scalable in the age of increasing clinical demands and limited work hours? Joining the conversation will be experts from all health care and education stakeholder domains, including patients, and students from nursing, medicine and engineering sciences.

A Robot With A Hypodermic Needle

A Robot With A Hypodermic Needle | Simulation in Health Sciences Education | Scoop.it

Would you let a robot take your blood? The answer to this question illuminates our real relationship to machines that aspire to rise above the robot vac. Is there another sort of uncanny valley?

Veebot is a very clever use of some basic image processing plus some very accurate positioning mechanisms. It first locates a good vein using infrared. Once it has a target it switches to ultrasound to make sure that there is enough blood flow to make it worth inserting the needle.

Physical effects of dementia can now be experienced virtually

Physical effects of dementia can now be experienced virtually | Simulation in Health Sciences Education | Scoop.it
I'm trying to find a sock. My vision is distorted and my hands are numb. It's dark. I rifle through a pile of what appear to be bedclothes, desperate to find the sock. A man stands next to me barking instructions, but I can't make out any words, only loud noises. He's too close, though, leering over my shoulder, frightening me. I shuffle away but I can't shake him off. Suddenly, I have the sock in my hand, holding it aloft like a prize. Within seconds, it's snatched away from me by the man at my shoulder. I ball my fist, ready to punch him.

Diagnosing cognitive defects using Virtual Environment Human Navigation System (VE-HuNT)

Diagnosing cognitive defects using Virtual Environment Human Navigation System (VE-HuNT) | Simulation in Health Sciences Education | Scoop.it

[From the University of California, San Diego; a 4:39 minute video is available on YouTube] 

 

Note: This is the first in a three-part series about Qualcomm Institute research projects that have a direct impact on aging. All three projects are funded through the Calit2 Strategic Research Opportunities program. The Qualcomm Institute is the University of California, San Diego division of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2).

 

Experts agree that the ability to navigate a neighborhood or built space is one of the first faculties to suffer at the onset of cognitive decline. They also agree that early intervention is crucial for stemming the further ravages of dementia.
