Can Twitter open up a new space for learning, teaching and thinking?

Can Twitter open up a new space for learning, teaching and thinking? | Medical Education | Scoop.it
"It does seem a little unconvincing to imply that using Twitter can suddely give students a great burst of critical or evaluative potential. However perhaps the value of social networks does not necessarily needs to be narrowly pedagogic. Aren't students given a better platform for academic performance where they feel a sense of security, confidence and belonging? That is what the HEA 'What Works' programme suggests. If social networks can connect students, keep students more up-to-date, and break down relational barriers, then it could free them from the confidence and anxiety issues than can impact upon performance. In other words - simply the effectiveness of using social networks to disseminate information and allow students to connect with staff and each other, might be what makes it an effective learning tool."

This is a comment by @ncututor on a Guardian discussion Twitter as a learning space and gets to the heart of the matter for me.

Social technology for social learning: Voxer and ScoopIt

Social technology for social learning: Voxer and ScoopIt | Medical Education | Scoop.it
Put them together and you can see a progression from conversation to curation, a circle of social learning that lets us create meaning and share it back out into the community. I believe that this type of approach, agile tech to support agile learning, is the future, far more so than big, dinosaur, legacy systems and approaches that tried to do everything. It’s about the mindset: creating, sharing, learning, with everything focussed on how we create meaning and what we do with it, out in the real world, not focussed on passwords, disclaimers, asynchronous messaging and single channel communication. In the Social Age, it’s about the conversations.

5 Ways to Improve Your Blogging in Less Than 24 Hours

5 Ways to Improve Your Blogging in Less Than 24 Hours | Medical Education | Scoop.it
“Apply these 5 tips in your blogging and see an instant improvement in your writing, and your WordPress traffic.”In my experience in coaching writers, I’ve discovered that the most common fear writers have is not being understood. Fear of not being heard causes people to over explain and to use more words than necessary.This can also manifest itself in people’s speech and it subconsciously communicates fear and insecurity. You can overcome this by trusting that your readers will know what you’re talking about. Over explaining can be worse than talking down to your readers and it clutters up your writing with fluff.So the next time you edit one of your blogs, ask yourself whether you’re over explaining and remove the sections where you’re saying too much.

This was suggested to me by the Scoopit website. It's a good call. What is most interesting is the bit about Desai and Khan Academy:

"Desai, who earned a BA from UCLA at 18, a Harvard fellowship after med school and served as an infectious disease investigator at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is now exploring innovative ways to teach medicine at Khan Academy, a small non-profit whose mission is to improve education by providing it online for free “to anyone everywhere”!

 

I hadn't realised that Khan Academy had started producing so much content around basic sciences for #meded . Even more proof that curation is where are energies now need to be focussed.

Curation vs. Blogging: The Difference Is In The Focus

Curation vs. Blogging: The Difference Is In The Focus | Medical Education | Scoop.it
Robin Good: If curation is all about finding and sharing great content, what's the difference with what so many bloggers have been doing until now? The difference, according to Deanna Dahlsad at Kitsch-Slapped, is in the focus. While bloggers often cover just about anything that intercepts their online wanderings, curators are characterized by a strong focus on a specific topic. Here is a key passage from her article: "Many bloggers spend their time selecting what they consider the best of what other people have created on the web and post it at their own sites, just like a magazine or newspaper. Or they provide a mix of this along with writing or otherwise creating their own content. Not to split hairs, but curation involves less creation and more searching and sifting; curation’s more a matter of focused filtering than it is writing. Because content curation is expected to be based on such focused filtering, it begins far more based on topic selection. This is much different from blogging, where bloggers are often advised to “just begin” and let their voice and interests accumulate over time to eventually reveal a primary theme. ... Some collectors just collect what they like as they stumble into it. …Sometimes, collectors just keep piling up stuff, no matter what it is. Even if this isn’t hoarding, it’s not-so-much of a purposeful pursuit. But professional curators, those who manage collections for museums or other organizations, and serious collectors, they maintain a specific focus. And rather than stumbling into items, they continually seek for specific items. The definition dictates the curation — and everything from funding to their continued employment is based on how well their collection meets the collection’s definition. While blogging success may be thought of in many different ways, the success of content curation lies in how well you define, search/research, and stick to your subject." Rightful. 8/10 Full article: http://www.kitsch-slapped.com/2012/06/facts-questions-on-blogging-curating-collecting/ ;

[1305.0435] The role of twitter in the life cycle of a scientific publication

Twitter is a micro-blogging social media platform for short messages that can have a long-term impact on how scientists create and publish ideas. We investigate the usefulness of twitter in the development and distribution of scientific knowledge. At the start of the life cycle of a scientific publication, twitter provides a large virtual department of colleagues that can help to rapidly generate, share and refine new ideas. As ideas become manuscripts, twitter can be used as an informal arena for the pre-review of works in progress. Finally, tweeting published findings can communicate research to a broad audience of other researchers, decision makers, journalists and the general public that can amplify the scientific and social impact of publications. However, there are limitations, largely surrounding issues of intellectual property and ownership, inclusiveness and misrepresentations of science sound bites. Nevertheless, we believe twitter is a useful social media tool that can provide a valuable contribution to scientific publishing in the 21st century

This came to me via scientist,  Dr Alison Stelling  (@drstelling). It is a very good summary of the way that social media is likely to impact on research and academic journals more in the futire.

The market for digital tools that improve medication adherence is heating up. Over the last year Mango Health launched, AdhereTech announced a new clinical trial, Janssen Healthcare Innovationscompletely revamped its Care4Today app, and Proteus demonstrated its tracking accuracy. And we’re constantly learning about new devices and apps like those from CyberDoctor, Ai Cure, and Nightingale, among many others.
