First slideshow: Education 2.0
- What we have to face: lack of inspiration (educators) and lack of motivation (students)
- But we can find motivation and inspiration online
- e.g. Ted Talks – Ken Robinson
- Why? We’re changing (students, even children use different communication channels) – Vision of students; Did you know 3.0
- We’re digital natives.
- Many examples, statistics about the problems with education
- “If you want to teach me, you first have to reach me”
- Wikipedia, Quiz.md, mind mapping, slideshare, Second Life simulations, thinkanatomy.com, twitter, friendfeed, and many more examples students can use in their studies
Take-home message: The web is full educational resources. Let’s start using them.
Second slideshow: New Media in Medicine and Science
- We don’t watch TV on TV any more.
- Statistics about Youtube (pros and cons)
- ustream.tv; Twiddeo.com
- How could a doctor reach the patient? (newspaper, ads, other patients)
- How can they reach them now? Through online videos such as scivee.tv, thedoctorschannel.com, emedtv.com
- Or video consultation: Jay Parkinson, Hello Health, American Well
- Podcasts: Is it easier to read or to listen to?
- List of best podcasts
- Automatic podcast: Odiogo
- Doctor Radio Show: Doctor Anonymous
- What does Science 2.0 mean?
- How do scientists use social media (examples for easy collaboration; e.g. Friendfeed, blogosphere, Twitter)
- Presenting JANE (Journal Author Name Estimator)
- What are the problems with impact factors and how can we solve these: article level metrics from PLoS
- The history of PLoS
- The subjournals, the business model, and how PLoS reaches scientists through social media (e.g. Bora Zivkovic once gave a talk at on of my Second Life meetings)
- Pros and cons of open access
Take-home message: The channels of media are changing so doctors can reach patients in different ways; researchers can interact more easily.
