preparing for a seminar on medicine and the media- thinking about health 3.0"

I was invited to join Twitter by a friend who works in IT. It just happens that at the time I was still at work thinking about a teaching session so my first tweet has quite a strong medical education flavour.
Like many people I wasn't sure what to actually make of Twitter after this and I left it for several months until I went to two medical education conferences and decided that social media could serve a purpose for me.
But I'm not a techno-evangelist. I believe we have to be very careful about how we use technology and to consider how it impacts on relationships.
If you google web 2 (a term for newer social technologies including social media) sceptic then the top result is actually about me, because I have disputed with other doctors in the past that these technologies are having any impact on our clinical practice. And I am still uncertain about this.
However I am certain, and have decided that I can allow myself to be evangelical, about the benefits that can be had for anyone who is at this conference and is therefore interested in improving medical education. I started becoming aware of this a short while after starting my own blog in October 2008 which is why in 2009 I gave a presentation at [the Association for the Study of Medical Educaton Annual Scientific Meeting] ASME about how social media and networks could develop and support scholarship in medical education. However, this did not lead to the expected paradigm shift in scholarly communication. So I have decided that I might need to be a little more direct with you this time. And this is why I am going to give you 10 reasons why you should be on Twitter now.'

I love screenr! : Here's an example of the way I use it to share with students. Screenr | Instant screencasts: Just click record. Screenr’s web-based screen recorder makes it a breeze to create and share your screencasts around the web. Just click the record button, capture your screen & voice, and share the link.
The idea for this group is that a topic/area of study for revision will be decided (ideally by voting, but initially most likely by the admins). A revision document will then be posted on the blog, usually with a few relevant MCQs for you to try 2- 3 days before the designated date and time for discussion.

Want help with revising for your medical finals? Here is teh backgroung to #twitfrg - a finals revision group on Twitter- a collaboration between doctors and students across the UK. The future??
Heather, a GP, runs this blog to support #ecgclass which she runs during the week. It is a mine of information for anyone learning about cardiology. Did you think that Thomas the Tank engine might be relevant to ECGs? NO!! Read on and be convinced!
I've scooped this mainly because it shows how a long interview can be hosted on a website- uses YouTube too. Recorded and processed with Etienne Wenger by Mike O'Donoghue and Tim Dornan, November 2010.
