How Games Lead Kids to the Good Stuff: Understanding Context

How Games Lead Kids to the Good Stuff: Understanding Context | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it
With game-based learning students learn how to solve the problems in context. They understand how the equations they are solving fit into the world. The question, “Why do I need to know this?” is rendered obsolete. It is more than just subject matter, more than just content. There’s context. Students understand how integer partitions work within a system.

Case study: Big data improves cardiology diagnoses by 17%

Case study: Big data improves cardiology diagnoses by 17% | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

Big data analytics technology has been able to find patterns and pinpoint disease states more accurately than even the most highly-trained physicians.

 

The human brain may be nature’s finest computer, but artificial intelligences fed on big data are making a convincing challenge for the crown. In the realm of healthcare, natural language processing, associative intelligence, and machine learning are revolutionizing the way physicians make decisions and diagnose complex patients, significantly improving accuracy and catching deadly issues before symptoms even present themselves.

 

In this case study examining the impact of big data analytics on clinical decision making, Dr. Partho Sengupta, Director of Cardiac Ultrasound Research and Associate Professor of Medicine in Cardiology at the Mount Sinai Hospital, has used an associative memory engine from Saffron Technology to crunch enormous datasets for more accurate diagnoses.

 

Using 10,000 attributes collected from 90 metrics in six different locations of the heart, all produced by a single, one-second heartbeat, the analytics technology has been able to find patterns and pinpoint disease states more quickly and accurately than even the most highly-trained physicians.

Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

What is curation anyway, and how can it be used as a tool for student and teacher learning? This essay will investigate what curation is and the different contexts it is used in. Why is it important; who are the curators, what motivates them and what makes a great curator? What processes and tools are used for curation and what digital literacies are required for successful curation? It will conclude with an investigation into ways teachers can use curation both with and for their students and as a tool for their own professional learning and a brief look at some curation tools.

It is a reed that to be educated today is to be not just knowledgeable but to be able to share, enlighten others with what you know, to be a curator of knowledge. I am curious what Nik Peachey has to say about curation in his essay!

A really great essay - with many excellent references - on the process of curation, useful digital tools, and connections to professional development in education.  Very informative.

Stigma as a public health tool: Implications for health promotion and citizen involvement

Stigma as a public health tool: Implications for health promotion and citizen involvement | Health promotion. Social marketing | Scoop.it

Stigma is a social mechanism by which individuals and groups are discredited; it reduces social status and creates ‘spoiled identities’ (Goffman, 1963). Stigma can operate at an individual and structural level; and be imposed externally or be self-perceived by individuals who apply negative stereotypes to themselves (Link & Phelan, 2001). In the field of substance use, debates around stigma tend to be divided between studies which assess the harms that stigma carries for health and identity, and an alternative body of work that ‘views stigma more benignly, as a form of social control’ (Room, 2005). We argue that if, as the second body of literature suggests, stigmatising measures are adopted widely in the substance use field their deleterious impact risks exacerbating substance use problems, particularly amongst the least well off. Furthermore, the strategy may impede the commitment to empowerment which has been fundamental to health promotion since the publication of the Ottawa Charter in 1986.
