What Does a 21st Century Classroom Look, Sound, and Feel Like? | elearning | Scoop.it

Part of a technology coach’s role these days is to convince teachers that their job description has changed. The industrial model of education is well past its expiration date, and the generation of students born today are going to graduate into a world that will look completely different than our own. In order to train 20th century teachers to reach the conceptual understandings required for 21st century education, school leaders and tech coaches need to focus on describing what this could be.

The article mainly talks about figures and relevant data about the impact of social networks at present, mainly in students .80% of students use cell phones to navigate in social networks. Due to the impact, the tendency to class classroom can be taken. First, integrating the use of social networks to the school curriculum, doing work and group discussions are some functionalities of social networks in the teaching area.

Massive Study Finds Lectures Still Dominate STEM Education

Massive Study Finds Lectures Still Dominate STEM Education | elearning | Scoop.it
One potential culprit captured by the study: Faculty may lack the training necessary to take advantage of smaller class sizes, open classroom layouts and other strategies meant to reduce the reliance on conventional lecturing. Lectures did occur less often in smaller than larger classes, the study found, and open layouts did correlate with more student-centered learning. But about half of the courses with those advantages still featured more conventional lecturing than interactive or student-centered teaching styles.

Digital Health Is A Cultural Transformation Of Traditional Healthcare Through Disruptive Technologies 

Digital Health Is A Cultural Transformation Of Traditional Healthcare Through Disruptive Technologies  | elearning | Scoop.it

The authors of the paper argue that digital health means a qualitative change on the horizon of healthcare transforming its very nature. And while it comes down to the countless disruptive technological innovations that are flooding the medical field in the last couple of years, the essence of this change is not technological, but cultural.

Technological transitions have taken place in healthcare before, explains the paper, but this is the very first time that they lead to a meaningful transformation of the status quo. When personal computers became widely available in the 1990s, e-health emerged. When such computers could be connected into networks, telemedical services appeared. The rise of social media networks gave space to medicine 2.0 and health 2.0; while penetration of mobile phones and later smartphones summoned mobile health. But from the 2010s, the rate at which disruptive technologies appear is inducing a qualitative change for both the patients and their caregivers.

The paper calls this new phenomenon “digital health”, and define as

the cultural transformation of how disruptive technologies that provide digital and objective data accessible to both caregivers and patients leads to an equal level doctor-patient relationship with shared decision-making and the democratization of care.

 

The authors describe that the use of technology only leads to better health outcomes if the related cultural challenges are acknowledged and the new needs of patients are met. That’s why we needed this definition – as part of acknowledging the changes around us.


What Will The Future Of Healthcare Look Like?

With the rise of digital technologies, such as artificial narrow intelligence, robotics, virtual reality/augmented reality, telemedicine, 3D-printing, portable diagnostics, health sensors, wearables, etc. the entire structure of healthcare, as well as the roles of patients and doctors, will fundamentally shift from the current status quo.

In the infographics below, I summarized the cornerstones of the coming changes comparing the current, traditional healthcare system, its structure and its roles with the modern healthcare system characterized by digital health.


Digital Health Raises Challenging Questions

The transformation of traditional healthcare leads to some serious ethical considerations and challenges policy-makers in unprecedented ways. Who should have access to health data? Is it lawful if employers or insurers want to gather data from their employees’ direct-to-consumer genetic testing results? What if someone hacks medical devices? How will we deal with medical robots? Whose responsibility will it be if it makes a mistake during surgery? What about gene editing and the possibility of designer babies? Should someone have the chance to pre-plan a human embryo?

Policy-makers, medical professionals and basically every responsible person should contemplate about the possible responses to pressing ethical questions and the challenges digital health means. As the waves of technologies are already flooding patients, the faster the appropriate answers come from the regulatory side, the better for the whole society. The reluctance and lack of incentives for physicians as well as policy-makers in this cultural transformation make patients the leading driving force in initiating changes. Although there are positive examples as the story of the FDA approving an artificial pancreas as the result of the #WeAreNotWaiting movement, individual entrepreneurship skills should not define patients’ health outcomes in the long run.


Medical Professionals & Policy-Makers Should Be The Guiding Lights

No matter how difficult it is, medical professionals and policy-makers should always be one step ahead of technology. They must take up the role of guiding patients through the myriad of digital health technologies – but it is only possible if they are up-to-date and open-minded. On the one hand, they must ensure patients don’t turn to non-proven services or technological solutions, on the other, they must involve patients as partners in designing care and decision making.

As disruptive technologies have the potential of taking away repetitive and monotonous tasks from physicians, they will be able to dedicate their focus to the patients as guides through digital health. Moreover, medical professionals will be able to go back to the very basics of healthcare. They could provide empathy, social care and the human touch which seems to be so scarce in traditional medicine.

Nikki Hale's curator insight, December 7, 2017 10:52 AM
This article raises some interesting ideas that I believe can be applied to facilitation.  Often I see people who are uncomfortable with that moment when their participants are in the zone of not knowing. They feel the need to fill the space with answers, solutions or examples to "help" the part.  What if as this article suggests that is where the magic lives?

"Education is about the joy of not knowing, and of what to do about that." This realization that the joy and wonder of not knowing can really drive deeper learning is what more teachers need reminded of more often.
