The Use of Social Bookmarking by Health Care Students

"Teaching and learning health and social care in a digital age produces many challenges for students and their teachers. A common hurdle for healthcare students is the sheer amount of information that they have to make sense of."

Glori Hinck's insight:

Researchers at the University of Greenwich  encouraged students to integrate social bookmarking into their learning and to tag their contributions.  Social bookmarking may aid as a tool in the creation of digitally literate health care communities of practice.  Useful across professions and course content.

Using Facebook Within a Geriatric Pharmacotherapy Course

Using Facebook Within a Geriatric Pharmacotherapy Course | Teaching with Social Media in Health Care Education | Scoop.it
Glori Hinck's insight:

A closed Facebook group is used to support a geriatric pharmacotherapy course with students assigned to post a "hot topic"  question or issue related to healthy aging to a discussion board. Discussions started on Facebook often carried over into the classroom. The use of a closed group can allow students to discuss controversial subjects without public scrutiny.
