Are Our Domains Really “Ours”? – My ePort | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it
NLafferty's insight:
Thoughtful piece by MacKenzie Kennedy reflecting on her personal domain and having the freedom to personalise this to support her learning. Highlights that as lecturers we can limit learning by providing cookie cutter style templates.

Realistic Graphics and Learning: What’s most effective? | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it
Realistic graphics are not always the most beneficial for learning. Consider simpler graphics if they meet your goals, like line drawings and icons.

A useful reference to share with academic colleagues concerning the use of graphics and in learning.

Well used tools can benefit teaching and learning. A key here might be the autonomy students experience, which can lead to them being responsible for their learning.

Reviewing Your Pedagogy by Using Jessie Stommel’s #4wordpedagogy

Reviewing Your Pedagogy by Using Jessie Stommel’s #4wordpedagogy | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it
When Jessie Stommel tweeted "Start by trusting students. #4wordpedagogy" and invited others to join in making four-word pedagogy statements, he began an unexpected worldwide conversation.  More than 4,500 tweets followed, with humorous, provoking, and critical comments on education today.  The Twitter conversation Jessie started shows Twitter at its best, as a tool to begin honest…
NLafferty's insight:
With so much talk about the teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in the UK it seem that much of the focus is on data, retention and progression and less about how we improve the quality of teaching.  Struck by the simplicity of this hashtag and would like to see how we might try using it locally across our Schools to encourage us to think more about our pedagogies across different disciplines.  With my medical education hat on I wonder whether we could also start #4wordmededpedagogy or #4wordmededped which is a bit shorter.

Fake News about the Future of Education – EdTech Strategies

Empty description
NLafferty's insight:
This piece from Doug Levin includes his take in a 100 words on predicting the role of technology in education.  He's articulated something which has been on my mind for a good while, namely will technology empower students to think critically about their place int he world and how they contribute. Or will we use it to control their attention, interests and behaviours. I'd also add whether we use technology to constantly measure students and develop a surveillance culture.

Doug goes onto to highlight that his100 words were a bit at odds with the other 105 experts asked to write similar short predictions.  He asks whether it matters, he thinks it does and I'd agree. As Doug goes onto highlight the coverage of edtech seems to be somewhat removed from the reality. The one voice that always seems to be missing is that of the student, in my experience they have quite different views to the ones presented in the media outlets.

No, you aren't a 'visual' learner

No, you aren't a 'visual' learner | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it
It's a damning indictment of our collective resistance to truth that the point of this article still has to be restated, yet again. Amazingly, 93% of the general public and 76% of educators still erroneously believe that we should be taught in ways that match our learning styles. I assume this is so in the US - unless things have changed recently, the percentages, for teachers at least, are even worse in some other countries where the idea has been pushed harder from the top down, such as the UK and Netherlands. To be quite clear: this belief is not…

Interesting piece raising the challenge of how we move beyond Articulate packages to more active learning in medical education.  The example here is in the context of radiology and how the learning can be designed to be more social and link students to learning networks that exist like #FOAMed which is a good example of connectivism.
