The Use of Mobile Devices in Social Work/Pedagogy based on Bloom’s Taxonomy – The Padagogy Wheel | Critical Thinking | Scoop.it
Social Pedagogy leans on social learning theory, where learning takes place on a societal level. In other words social learning occurs when individuals experience a demonstrable change in understanding or behaviour through social interactions and that change extends to include the society in which they live.

How Healthcare Organizations Should Treat a Social Media Crisis

How Healthcare Organizations Should Treat a Social Media Crisis | Critical Thinking | Scoop.it
Crisis management has always been critical in healthcare, but the global phenomenon called social media has made it vital for the industry to treat any emergency with urgency and have a healthy crisis management strategy. To help healthcare organizations handle a crisis with care, Uri Goren dispensed some socialsuggestions on PMLive.com.While the healthcare industry is skilled at handling medical crises, it has struggled to manage social media crises because there is a cultural gap between the industry and technology. This is mainly because healthcare is the antithesis of social media. It is conservative by nature, as well as evidence-based driven, highly regulated, steeped in professional jargon, and upholds privacy to the highest standard. While these qualities are important in healthcare, they aren’t in social media, which is a fast-paced, dynamic, liberal, brief, and transparent form of media. These gaps have to be bridged in the near future to help the healthcare industry thrive with the times.Healthcare organizations need to face a few realities of the new social order. First, patients have become public spokespeople and they can share their experiences with thousands through a quick click and comment. In addition, the ubiquity of smartphones means that patients can capture any medical discussion or display and then air it to the world instantaneously. This loss of privacy must be remembered in every dialogue and document since each can lead to potential problems.Also, social media has sped up the crisis response time to the point that a problem can go public in an instant. This means that organization must be prepared to remedy a crisis on the spot.Finally, social media has turned the tables on traditional news and instead of just spreading stories, has become the source of them. This means that a simple comment or tweet can quickly become breaking news. As a result, healthcare organizations must use discretion when posting to platforms and realize every patient is a potential journalist.So how can healthcare organizations protect and prepare themselves for potential social media slips? Just like in medicine, prevention is key, so here are a few healthy habits to preserve your public image.1. Monitor Your Social Signs – Pay attention to what patients are saying by listening to their comments on social media channels.2. Increase Your Immunity – Strengthen your social immune system by actively participating in social media discussions and building a positive community around the healthcare brand.3. Be Prepared for Any Emergency – Develop a standard operating procedure for crisis management and train your employees to follow your guidelines and alert you to potential problems.4. Treat the Problem Immediately – Just like trauma treatment, you need to act fast to increase your odds of survival, so you must respond immediately. Even a vague response is better than no response—just be sure to let your community know that you’re on the case and seeking a remedy.5. Dispense a Dose of Honesty and Empathy – Social media demands professional transparency and personal respect, so make both the basis of your crisis management strategy.A social media crisis can happen to any brand at any time, so you can’t take any chances when it comes to the health of your healthcare organization.

"Gaming is an important component of the child's cognitive and emotional growth. In his wonderful book " What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy. Second Edition: Revised and Updated Edition " http://amzn.to/1bOeA48 James Paul Gee argued for the importance of game play for the learners' developing personalty and the honing of their thinking capacities. Gee analyzed several of the popular video and online games like Sims City, and War of Warcraft, to mention but a few , and found out that the learning design informing these games  are behind their sweeping popularity among gamers in all around the world. Gee further claimed that investing time in playing these games does impinge positively on the learning skills of kids. It, among many other things, help them develop strategic thinking, problem solving, active critical thinking, and meta-level thinking. Check out this post http://bit.ly/19nKi7H ; to learn more about the learning principles embedded in game play as conceptualized by Gee."

PISA Results Reaffirm Need for Assessment of the 4Cs - The Partnership for 21st Century Skills

Washington, D.C.- December 3, 2013 - With today’s release of the 2012 PISA results, P21, the leading national organization advocating for 21st century readiness for all students, reaffirms its support for and assessment of 21st century skills. 

According to the OECD, more than 510,000 students in 65 economies took part in the latest PISA test, with a focus on math, and including reading and science. PISA results reveal what is possible in education by showing what 15 year-old students in the highest-performing and rapidly improving education systems can do.

PISA is currently the best large-scale assessment for measuring cross-curricular competencies which form the cornerstone of the P21 Framework for 21st Century Learning. The 4Cs of Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity are key to student success in college, career, and citizenship.

The latest results once again place U.S. students below average to average in international rankings for math, reading, and science, and highlight the need for real-world problem solving preparation U.S. students receive.

As many education experts have noted, the lack of widely-used 21st century assessments creates an accountability gap which must be addressed if we as a nation are serious about preparing students for success.  We need other assessments that look beyond what students know and authentically assess students’ ability to apply knowledge.

Preparing for next level assessments also means we need to infuse 21st century skills with high level content into all education systems.  Ensuring that 21st century learning supports are created within curriculum, instruction, professional development and assessment will mean that our students will be better prepared for the next-level assessments in the future.

We applaud the OECD for including collaborative problem solving as part of the 2015 PISA test, and for seeking innovative ways to assess students the world over. The PISA results highlight that these rankings are an international competitive issue, not just for test scores, which alone are not enough to signal student mastery, but for what these scores represent as part of overall student preparation for college, career and citizenship.

P21 reaffirms our commitment to the 4Cs and to ensuring that all students have the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the 21st century global economy, colleges, and citizenship.  We are dedicated to working with P21’s broad coalition of business, education, and nonprofits to provide 21st century accountability, research, and advocacy to support 21st century learning for all students.  

P21 Members: Amplify, Apple Inc., Bahcesehir K-12 Schools, Cable in the Classroom, The College Board, Common Sense Media, Crayola, Destination Imagination, EdLeader21, EF Education, Education Networks of America, Ford Motor Company Fund, Gale Cengage Learning, Goddard Systems Inc., Intel Corporation, JP – Inspiring Knowledge, Learning.com, LEGO Education, National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, National Education Association, PBS, Pearson Foundation, People to People Ambassador Programs, Project Management Institute Educational Foundation, U.S. Fund for UNICEF, VIF International Education, and The Walt Disney Company.

P21 Leadership States: Arizona, California, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, Wisconsin and West Virginia.
