Nice overview of research on MOOC's. Research on xMOOC's is missing in this overview. Most is broader about online learning and its effects.

ICTlogy » ICT4D Blog » Personal Learning Environments and the revolution of Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it
Developmental psychologist Lev Vygotsky defined what the person or a student can do — or the problems they can solve — as three different stages:

What a student can do on their own, working independently or without anyone’s help.
What the student can do with the help of someone.
What it is beyond the student’s reach even if helped by someone else.

Integrating social media into academia is not a novel idea. And since you are reading this, chances are you probably have been utilizing some feature of social media in the classroom for years. What is more interesting is asking why academia should exploit social media and, more specifically, Twitter.

Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, March 6, 2013 5:28 AM

From the text:

 

"What can we learn from here?

• In developing interactive stories, create an inventory of data and information. Classify your data accordingly: important, not so important and useless.  Include only the data which are necessary and exclude those which are only ‘ornamentals’.We call this “must learn” versus “learn on need.”

• Blend the data with the narrative through the help of  metaphors and visuals.

• Test the draft presentation with a pilot audience and see if they got your message across."

How to Create Stop Motion Videos with the Vine App | Common Craft

How to Create Stop Motion Videos with the Vine App | Common Craft | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it

At Common Craft, we’ve learned a few things about stop motion video over the years.  It’s how we make all of our videos.  Yesterday I downloaded the new (and free) Vine app by Twitter, which allows you to capture and share up to 6 seconds of video at a time using an iPhone or iPod Touch.

NLafferty's insight:

Handy tips here and an approach that could be applied to developing videos for medical education and #FOAMed resources.

Vine - the Twitter video app has got great potential in medical education.  Here Common Craft show how it can be used to create stop motion vidoes.  I've already seen one student have a go with this, could be useful for students developing learning resources on elearning SSCs.

Medical Education & Social Media

Medical Education & Social Media | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it

Medical education could benefit from new forms of communication between health professionals made possible through social media - a collection of technologies that use the Internet to connect people. These technologies will be familiar to many and include Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+. These social media create connections between individuals and form networks within which information is shared. In this short review I will outline some of the opportunities and challenges facing the use of social media and medical education. I will not focus on any particular form of medical education so the discussion includes undergraduate and postgraduate.
