Computerized nursing process: development of a mobile technology for use with neonates.

Rev Bras Enferm. 2018;71(suppl 3):1273-1280

Authors: Lima JJ, Vieira LGD, Nunes MM

Abstract
OBJECTIVE: to build a mobile technology to assist nurses during data collection, diagnostic reasoning, and identification of interventions in neonates.
METHOD: methodological study with a qualitative approach. The development was carried out in three phases, namely: bibliographical survey, construction of a database of diagnosis/interventions, and development of the software. We used the development tools Ruby on Rails, IONIC 2, PostgresSQL, and Amazon EC2.
RESULTS: The developed technology received the name Natus, able to contribute to the development of the nursing process applied to patients of neonatal units. Its requirements are: to define human needs, select nursing diagnoses, select interventions, define time periods, and issue printed files.
FINAL CONSIDERATIONS: the technology built is a computerized tool that allows for the development of the nursing process, facilitating data collection, diagnostic reasoning, and identification and grouping of the clinical signs presented by the newborn in neonatal units.

Older Adults' Live Demonstration of Electronic Personal Health Record Use: Factors Mediating Initial Proficiency.

Comput Inform Nurs. 2018 Dec;36(12):603-609

Authors: Evans BA, Beverly CJ, Tsai PF, Rettiganti M, Lefler LL, Parks RF

Abstract
Adoption of electronic personal health records by older adults offers multiple advantages to healthcare and is being encouraged by federal agencies and health associations. However, obstacles have limited older adults' rates of adoption to approximately 10%. This study examined the initial proficiency of older adults at entering 21 standard health elements into an electronic personal health record. Entry completeness, accuracy, elapsed time, and help requests were measured. A combination of standard technology adoption model and older adult characteristics accounted for 52% of variability in proficiency at entering electronic personal health record data. Automatic linear modeling identified three variables as primarily related to proficiency with electronic personal health record use: age, computer competency, and mental status. Interventions to increase electronic personal health record adoption and proficiency of use will require the consideration of variables specific to older adults, and may best focus on younger seniors with good mental status and computer competency. Efforts for older seniors with decreased mental status might better center on delegation to a primary caregiver.

How Online Learning Platforms Can Support Lifelong Learners And Drive Business

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2019-01-08 01:07

Kirill Bigai, Forbes

In the 21st century, learning and even formal education are no longer just for kids and college-age students. As Hunt Lambert, Dean of Harvard’s Division of Continuing Education, observes, learning may be something we begin to pursue in earnest during our teen years, but it is increasingly something we continue throughout our working years and even into retirement. Lambert describes this cycle as the 60-year curriculum , but whatever you call it, one thing is clear: Lifelong learning is becoming the norm. Thirty years ago, most CEOs likely wouldn’t be boasting about their ongoing program of continuing education, but we live in a new world — one where the demand and ability to keep learning throughout one’s career is something we all need to embrace.

Online Education is Paving a Smoother Path to Earning Data Science Skills

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2019-01-08 01:04

Inside Big Data

A recent report from IBM states that there will be over 300,000 new job openings for data driven professionals by 2020. As it stands now, there is a shortage of the necessary technical skills for these roles. Specifically, professionals should focus on how to turn data into decisions. We’ve learned to build the infrastructure that can store and process massive amounts of data, but we still lack the critical ability to convert that data into meaningful information.  Some universities are adapting to this data revolution by providing more on-campus data science courses, however, these are relatively new offerings that were not available to most while they were in school. Many professionals need rigorous training in these skills now, and want them without having to leave their day job. They need the practicality and flexibility that online learning provides, so the operative question becomes: can MOOCS deliver these skills without compromising quality?

By The Numbers: MOOCs in 2018

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2019-01-08 01:02

by Dhawal Shah, Class-Central

Now in its seventh year, the modern MOOC movement crossed 100 million learners to a total of 101 million. At the same time,  we are seeing a decrease in the number of new learners signing up. In 2018, 20 million new learners signed up for at least one MOOC, down from 23 million the year before. Despite the slowdown, the number of paying users may have increased. MOOC providers’ constant tweaking of the model seems to be paying off, as providers such as  Coursera are hitting record revenues ($140 million in 2018 for Coursera).

Here is a list of top five MOOC providers by registered users:

  1. Coursera – 37 million
  2. edX – 18 million
  3. XuetangX – 14 million
  4. Udacity – 10 million
  5. FutureLearn – 8.7 million

The Future of Work: Why better education doesn’t necessarily translate into better work.

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2019-01-07 01:05

By Ann Claire Carnahan, US News

The job market has fundamentally shifted in the United States and it is changing how and why Americans work. Through the rise of technology and globalization, competition among workers has become fiercer. Education requirements for employees have risen even though jobs are steadily becoming deskilled. And the mounting anxiety over jobs in an increasingly fluid job market has political, social and personal consequences, according to Ellen Ruppel Shell, author of “The Job: Work and its Future in a Time of Radical Change.” In an effort to keep up, Americans are seeking additional education and are learning new skills. “But it will not inoculate them against the changes that are already occurring or that are coming,” Shell says. For example, the vast majority of future jobs will not require a college education. Already, roughly one in three college graduates are underemployed.

India education in 2019: Digital delivery will take centre stage

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2019-01-07 01:01

by Vikas Singh, Financial Express

India holds an advantageous position on the global map. Not only does it enjoy a favourable demographic dividend with the largest population in the age group of 15-24 years, but it was also ranked 27th out of 80 countries on the global English Proficiency Index 2017.  This implies that 2019 will witness an accelerated shift towards blended concept-based learning—moving away from the traditional rote learning. More emphasis would be on the application of knowledge and the development of core skills, to prepare students for eventually joining the workforce. This goes beyond textbooks and involves group discussions, problem-solving and research-based assignments. Without exhaustive libraries in all schools, online learning tools and resources will be the need of the hour. Some proponents contest that given the future favouring the tech-savvy, schoolchildren should be introduced to digital media at an early age.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the hot topic of the moment in technology, and the driving force behind most of the big technological breakthroughs of recent years. In fact, with all of the breathless hype we hear about it today, it’s easy to forget that AI isn’t anything all that new. Throughout the last century, it has moved out of the domain of science fiction and into the real world. The theory and the fundamental computer science which makes it possible has been around for decades.

BY ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL

As of Oct. 1, there were 740 empty teacher slots in the state, according to New Mexico State University. That’s why an online program fast-tracking teacher licensure for those with bachelor’s degrees or higher is long overdue. While some state lawmakers have tried for years to address the need for qualified teachers, especially those in STEM fields, by mining the many professionals in our communities, the state Legislature has been unable or unwilling to codify alternative licensure in statute.

by BRIDGET BURNS and PETER J. TAYLOR, Hechinger Report

Up to 40 percent of students at four-year institutions do not complete their degrees in six years. That’s why the University Innovation Alliance, a group of 11 public research universities serving 400,000 undergraduate students, decided to collaborate instead of compete with one another. Related: Some colleges extend scholarships and other help to rural high school grads. It’s a concept with potential for higher education, but it may require a shift among leaders conditioned toward competition. Institutions may share a common mission, but they often toil in isolation.

By Merve A. K?zrak, Interesting Engineering

Imagine that a ‘human lawyer’ can handle all the cases in the world after AI’s preliminary research. For a human lawyer, it takes weeks to do research, but AI can do it in just a few seconds. Moreover, AI does not get tired, sleep, eat or drink coffee. In fact, the AI can produce more successful results than an average experienced lawyer. In 2017, in an experiment involving more than 100 lawyers in London, hundreds of actual applications to the Finance Ombudsman for a specific credit card irregularity were examined. While the accuracy of human prediction was 66.3%, an AI program trained to predict whether or not to accept files achieved 86.6% accuracy.

Education in America will need to adapt to prepare students for the next generation of jobs – including ‘data trash engineer’ and ‘head of machine personality design.’ Careers that used to safely dodge the high-tech bullet will soon require at least a basic grasp of things like web design, computer programming and robotics – presenting a new challenge for colleges and universities.  A projected 85 percent of the jobs that today’s college students will have in 2030 haven’t been invented yet.  The coming high-tech changes are expected to touch a wider variety of career paths than ever before. Many experts say American universities aren’t ready for the change because the high-tech skills most workers will need are currently focused just on people specializing in science, technology, engineering and math

It’s no secret that employers are looking for data scientists. Businesses of all sizes have woken up to the fact that data science has the potential to drive efficiencies, mine new insights from decades of accumulated data sets, and otherwise transform their businesses. From Zillow’s home price predictions to Amazon’s recommendation engines, applications of data science have become increasingly prevalent and high-profile. But while data scientist has been ranked the “#1 Job in America” for three years running, according to careers website Glassdoor, there’s still a shortage of talent to fill the huge need employers have. In fact, according to a recent LinkedIn study, businesses across the nation need 151,717 more data scientists right now.

Today’s workforce is more complex and diverse than ever before. The concept of a career as a single linear path is long gone, as people from all walks of life forge new paths to economic and personal success. For businesses, faster adaptation is the only way to keep pace as technology, education, and globalization are constantly changing the modern work culture. In particular, three trends – labor shortages, the gig economy, and automation – are redefining the way work gets done.
