Problems and modular solutions

Mighty Rasing's curator insight, September 6, 2013 1:42 AM

This looks like a good approach to addressing the many and varied problems that young people are facing these days.



Mitchell argues that a modular practice elements approach would carry a number of advantages when treating young people will complex, multiple needs compared with conventional implementations of evidence-based practice:

• Individual tailoring: with interventions broken into smaller parts, practitioners would find it easier to mix and match techniques best suited to the individual.
• Integration with existing practice: instead of replacing what already exists, the new approach would build on its strengths.
• Varied modalities: while many evidence-based programs run in a single, highly structured mode (e.g. a planned series of group-work sessions), a modular approach could combine a number of modes and timescales.
• Cost efficiencies: training could concentrate on skills that are missing or underdeveloped among practitioners rather than training them in multiple, elaborate evidence-based programs.
• Sensitivity to context: as the clients’ needs shift, practice elements could be added or subtracted.
• Evaluation: research would improve knowledge about the effectiveness of “usual care” that has been poorly described and evaluated, as well as the overall modular approach.
• Inter-agency collaboration: a common language about practice elements would help to form a shared understanding of interventions across different services.

With the advent of interactive touch screens, educational apps have taken off. Until recently, there has been little research into their effectiveness, but that is starting to change.

Modular AngularJS App Design

Organize your Angular app into modules for code reusability

I am a sucker for modules. Something about bundling a set of functionality and display logic into a module that can be easily redistributed for many apps makes my skin tingle. So when I saw that “modules” were a big part of the AngularJS methodology, I was super excited to try it out. I quickly realized however, that most of the examples online used one module for the entire application, which didn’t seem all that modular to me.
