Bibliometric Patterns of Research Literature Production on Nursing Informatics Competence.

J Nurs Educ. 2015 Oct;54(10):565-71

Authors: Kokol P, Vošner HB, Železnik D, Vošner J, Saranto K

Abstract
BACKGROUND: Nursing informatics competence is a prerequisite for successful information management, evidence-based practices optimizing patient care health promotion, and communication with information communication technology-literate patients.
METHOD: The aim of this study was to assess the trends in the production of nursing informatics competence research literature and to identify the most productive bibliometric entities. In addition to the correspondence analysis, bibliometric analysis and mapping were used to achieve the aim.
RESULTS: A total of 366 information sources were extracted, 14.5% of which were sponsored studies. The production of research literature on nursing informatics competence is growing, but this research is only occasionally published in the most recognized nursing journals.
CONCLUSION: Identifying where the intensive research on nursing informatics competence is beneficial to care for the patient of the future and building user-friendly online lifelong learning platforms, where a required level of nursing informatics competence could be acquired, are two gaps in the current research that should be covered in future.

When it’s Your Googopoly Game, You Can Flip the Board in the Air Anytime

Alan Levine, CogDogBlog, Aug 22, 2016

Alan Levine, being more thorough than I, discovered that if you click on 'Events' on your Live Streaming Dashboard, (right under 'Stream Now') you can run your Hangout on Air (aka Live Event) - look for the subtle 'New Event' button in the upper right of the page. Google usability engineers hate you. So you don't need the streaming media encoder. But I'll be honest - after having used the encoder, I really prefer it (though of course none of this works particularly well on my laptop). In the future somewhere is a world where we can use a media encoder of our choice and a cloud service of our choice to host live video events without Google or any of the rest of them. But we're not there yet. OK, now to see if I can hack using Martin Hawksey’ s genius script for an auto updated twitter archive to use something other than Twitter.

The Internet of Things for Educators and Learners

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2016-08-23 02:10

by Dina Kurzweil and Sean Baker, Educause Review

Given the phenomenal growth of connected devices in the Internet of Things, the issue of how higher education supports educators with the IoT in learning environments becomes a key consideration in teaching and learning. An educational environment explicitly focused on supporting learning with the IoT could be extremely beneficial; we call it the Educators’ and Learners’ Internet of Things, or ELIoT. What we have to decide is whether we will prepare, through the design of distributed, adaptive systems and methodologies, to give the ELIoT a warm welcome in higher education while managing the accompanying serious considerations.

by Seth Atkinson and Rob Curtin, Educause Review

The Internet of Things enables multiple benefits in higher education, from cost savings in building and energy management to new career opportunities for students. Integrated data and automation provide a safe, personalized, and always connected student experience. Cloud-enabled machine-learning models applied to student engagement and performance data can help institutions materially increase graduation rates. Cloud computing provides the centralized collection, storage, and analytics systems and algorithms necessary to make sense of the resulting masses of data produced by the IoT.

Sobering: Gen Z on track to cause major IT, STEM crisis

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2016-08-23 02:04

BY MERIS STANSBURY, eCampus News

Gen Z’s dependence on tech and tech support not mirrored in their career choices; IT dearth a massive problem on the horizon. According to recent data, Gen Z demands that devices and software—and the support required to use them—be woven into their daily lives; yet, most of this digital native generation has no interest in having an IT career. So who, exactly, will provide the technology and support needed to satisfy the future generation? It’s yet another cold water splash on the STEM fields that have been in crisis in the U.S. for years. However, unlike the somewhat vague notion of there being less engineers and mathematicians to better the collective intelligence and innovation of a nation, the fact that almost none of the future generation have any interest in information technology will have a direct, negative impact on not only individual consumers, but on entire ecosystems (like higher education) that are becoming increasingly dependent on IT.

5 Tips for Getting Started with Student Choice

OLDaily by Stephen Downes - Tue, 2016-08-23 01:19


John Spencer, Aug 22, 2016

A pedagogy based on student choice isn't just some myth that is talked about but never seen in reality. It's actually out there. John Spencer offers some practical advice to those working with choice. "Student choice goes beyond simply picking an item out of a menu. It’ s about self-directed students taking charge of their own learning." And, importantly, you have to model it. " They need a vision for how it can look and you, as the teacher, can provide that to them by modeling. Sometimes you will have to give permission when you assume they already know it. Sometimes you will have to model the metacognition needed in self-assessment."

Set up your live streaming encoder

OLDaily by Stephen Downes - Tue, 2016-08-23 01:19


Google, Aug 22, 2016

I don't have any talks scheduled for a few months (the world has finally tired of me!) but I'm getting set up to replace Hangout on Air with YouTibe Live just in case. What I discovered is that to use YouTube Live you have to use a stand-alone video streaming application (this is really similar to the way to send live audio to Shoutcast, so I was pretty comfortable with it). From the list of applications on this page I tried xSplit, which took a but to figure out but which worked beautifully once it was up and running (the audio was beautiful; it could really take advantage of my nice audio-technic mic). If you do any webcasting, take the time to get this figured out now - you won't be able to get it running in five minutes before your webcast.

How Musical.ly Became A Pop Culture Phenomenon

OLDaily by Stephen Downes - Mon, 2016-08-22 19:19


Jared Newman, Fast Company, Aug 22, 2016

What's interesting about  Musical.ly is that it grew out of a failed ed tech startup. Musical.ly allows users to lipsync to popular videos and share the results with friends. It draws from a catalogue of several million songs. The original ed tech application was a device that enabled users to create five-minute videos explaining a concept or practice. But it failed for a lack of experts. "The challenge is that there are not too many people who are able to explain knowledge in such a short period of time." This is interesting, but I guess not surprising. The authors took what they learned from the failed startup to create the new app. "If you're going to build a product that relies on user-generated content, it needs to be lightweight and capable of uploading content in minutes rather than hours."

Why On Earth Is Google Building A New Operating System From Scratch?

OLDaily by Stephen Downes - Mon, 2016-08-22 19:19


Jared Newman, Fast Company, Aug 22, 2016

The answer to the question is that we need lighter and more basic operating systems to provide a common computing environment for small devices and larger computers. Even the Linux kernel is overloaded with functions that single-purpose devices don't need. As well, new applications need to respond on the thousandths of a second, an an operating system with a built-in scheduler creates the possibility of lag. The new operating system being developed by Google to meet these needs is called Fuchsia and has been distributed on GitHub and Google Git. More from The Verge, CNet, Pocket Lint, Engadget.

Will Virtual Reality Solve Your Real-world Problem?

OLDaily by Stephen Downes - Mon, 2016-08-22 16:18


Lisa Minogue-White, Learning Solutions Magazine, Aug 22, 2016

The answer to this question is still mostly "no' but this business-focused article looks at some training scenarios - for example, a virtual “ hackathon” space using Microsoft's “ holoportation” technology. The article outlines a framework for evaluating the potential use of virtual reality (VR), "a model for analyzing dimensions of the learning need and how appropriate VR would be as a solution," with three dimensions: risk, sensory, and practice. "Seeing the world through another’ s eyes can be a deeply powerful emotional experience; and because the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic stimuli of a VR environment are so immersive, VR gets you very close indeed to truly seeing through someone else’ s eyes."

New report lists the rising expectations for quality online education leadership

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2016-08-22 13:45

by Merris Stansbury, eCampus News

As online learning evolves from amateur experimentation to a mainstream professional entity on campus, new standards for quality online learning leadership are emerging in order to not only sustain these distance programs, but ensure they meet the growing demands of 21st-century academe. The University Professional and Continuing Education Association (UPCEA) has released a report detailing seven hallmarks of excellence in online leadership. These standards of excellence for online learning leadership are an attempt to articulate those features and principles that will create opportunities for students that “far exceed anything already achieved in higher education, take pedagogy to a new level, and demonstrate the capacity of universities to be an even more vital force in our society,” notes the report. Hallmarks range from advocacy to entrepreneurial initiatives and much more.

Students Delay Getting Course Material, Face Poorer Grades

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2016-08-22 02:05

By Dian Schaffhauser, Campus Technology

More than seven in 10 students (72 percent) wait until a new course has started before they invest in course material. Another 27 percent never buy the course material at all. Fifty-five percent say they’ve gone with old versions of the content and 47 percent say they’ve shared materials with a classmate as strategies for lowering the financial outlay they have to make. These results come from a survey done in May 2016 of 500 currently enrolled college students by Wakefield Research on behalf of VitalSource. The latter is a company that provides a platform for delivering curriculum in digital form.

Breaking the ‘Iron Triangle’

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2016-08-22 02:03

by Carl Straumsheim

Faculty members at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro experiment with a model for course redesign they say can increase access and quality and lower costs. Quality, cost, access — pick two. That’s the traditional view of higher education’s “iron triangle” — that trying to adjust for one of the three main factors of a college education will influence the other two. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is the latest institution to challenge that axiom. Over the last two academic years, the university has been involved in a project where faculty members redesigned four courses according to design principles they named CRAFT (the acronym is short for Create and curate content, Replace lectures with Active, and Flipped, Team-based learning). The project targeted general education requirements and courses with high rates of students withdrawing or earning a D, F or an incomplete.

Popular MITx philosophy MOOC introduces instructor grading

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sun, 2016-08-21 02:10

by MIT Office of Digital Learning

If one of the core philosophies of online learning is to democratize education, then a new verified certificate option for a philosophy course on MITx on edX — the massive open online courses (MOOCs) offered by the Institute — brings the concept full circle. Starting Aug. 29, Introduction to Philosophy: God, Knowledge and Consciousness will enable students to obtain a verified ID certificate and have their work graded and commented upon by professional philosophers. Learners from any background, anywhere in the world, can pursue the certificate option to add credibility and value to the accomplishment of completing the course. “This is a big deal — the first MITx humanities course to offer students the chance to write a paper and have it carefully reviewed by instructors,” says Caspar Hare, who will be running the popular MOOC for the third time. “Listening to lectures and reading books is great, but philosophy is all about taking complex ideas and organizing them in a simple way.”
