Mia MacMeekin recently posted a new infographic that helps students learn how to determine if online resources are reliable. It is split into four sections, and each section has seven questions. The four sections are:

* Who wrote it?

* What is it for?

* Why was it written?

* When was it written?

With the additional questions students should be able to determine if the site is relevant to their research, and use critical thinking skills as they come to their decision.

This is an area where many students struggle, and this visual may help them become more comfortable in learning how to evaluate information.

What's pareidolia, and why does it matter in terms of brand storytelling/framing? If you don't know, you will as soon as you read this very interesting, informative, useful (and several other positive adjectives) post. Bonus: As the title indicates, you'll also read about three storytelling categories--reinforcer, supporter, and challenger. Yep, it's a good post.

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 26, 2015 3:35 PM

Do you know what pareidolia is? Do you know about framing and how it connects to pareidolia? Do you know the 3 types of brand messages to use?


If you answered "no" to any one of these, you are going to want to read this article. Written by branding professional Laura Petrolino, she takes us deeper into successful brand storytelling.


Understanding what pareidolia is and it's link to storytelling is crucial. From there you can to better framing, and then move on to improved messaging.


Dig into this article if you want better brand storytelling for your business. The only thing I wish the author had done for us is give us a few brand storytelling examples. Hopefully next time. That being said, the information here could still make a world of difference for you.

The digital patient is social, virtual and self-reliant

The digital patient is social, virtual and self-reliant | Social media | Scoop.it

These are exciting times!

For the first time in human history, we are being simultaneously inundated with various disruptive technologies. Real game changers such as 3D printing, robots, virtual reality, big data and the Internet of Things are all on the edge of the breakthrough to the general public, while others such as mobile and social media are already established. You read everywhere that the impact on the healthcare sector is enormous, but in practice how tangible is it today? I will just zoom in briefly on a few of these trends.

Wearables and apps are being integrated into our daily activities. Even today, steps are being measured, sleep patterns logged and sporting activities are increasingly “appified”. There are also startups that focus on real health issues such as chronic diseases, the elderly and promoting the “patient experience” are springing up from the ground and are sought after by Tech investors. Apps that measure your health in real-time and send this to the healthcare provider, that predict health risks and optimize home rehabilitation are just a few of the apps on offer. For instance, consider the dream of Walter and Sam de Brouwer with their company Scanadu from Silicon Valley with the motto “check your health as easily as your e-mail”. You put their device Scout against your forehead for 10 seconds and you get measurements of your blood pressure, heart rate, temperature and oxygen saturation on your smartphone. The basic data that a doctor would check, but in pocket size and always accessible. It is easy to make a comparison with the Tricoder from Star Trek.

Traditional models of providing healthcare are based on face-to-face interaction between doctors and patients. But as the traditional customer relationship evolves within organisations, the patient-doctor relationship is also changing with regard to “omni-channel”, “commitment” and “self-service” and will take place more virtually and outside the walls of health facilities.

The power of omni-channel communication via social media is demonstrated today by leading hospitals in the US such as the Mayo Clinic. By providing accurate information through various channels they encourage patient engagement and help other hospitals and healthcare professionals worldwide. The Mayo Clinic has:

its own social network: Social media health network with the aim of encouraging social media training and the sharing of knowledge within the healthcare sector with other institutions and professionals;performs a groundbreaking role with its blogs in which patients and staff talk about their experiences;is the most popular medical channel on YouTube with more than 1,000 videos: For instance, in a short video doctors talk about what questions they would ask a patient during a consultation to increase the quality of the consultation and to proactively manage expectations;450,000 followers of its twitter account 300,000 connections on its Facebook page, 22 boards and 800 Pins on Pinterest, where it shares all kinds of information and in which it actively listens and interacts with patients and the like-minded.

A social world that our Belgian institutions have hardly explored.

Wearables, sensors, social media, .. actually they generate all one thing: data, a lot of data, that is rapidly changing and coming from everywhere. This (large amount of) data is the secret weapon to bring the doctor-patient relationship to the next level. Linking these data sources will enable the healthcare sector to give the patient a central role and to provide a customised patient experience from start to finish. Traditional policy information supplemented with these new insights will create a whole new set of critical success factors for the management of hospitals.

Is this personalized digital healthcare ready for tomorrow? The technology seems ready. But as always, technology is only one component of the solution and is in essentially only a steering mechanism. Thinking that technology on its own will be the solution is like assuming that pills are the only solution for a healthier life.

Even so, these are exciting times!
