Video Games – the new highway to learning and personal growth

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2019-09-04 02:10

By Dimitra Giannouplaki, Thrive Global

The main question is whether video games can be used in our learning process. Can they transform the ways we learn and make us enjoy the process and simultaneously help us develop as personalities through the acquisition of skills like critical thinking, collaboration, and empathy? My answer could be only positive, and I will mention just three examples coming from the digital world that can make us reconsider the potential of video games in education. When students are exposed for so many hours to their digital devices, what if we use this new lifestyle to channel and inspire a new kind of education to both kids and adults?

By Jamie Merisotis, Inside Indiana Business

The worlds of work and learning are merging in powerful ways, driven by the exponential growth in human knowledge. This means the abilities needed in the workplace go beyond simple “job skills” that can be learned quickly through a short-term training program.

In a Changing Career Landscape, Employers and Workers Need a New Social Contract for Retraining

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Wed, 2019-09-04 02:02

By Sean Gallagher, EdSurge

There’s a growing consensus that today’s economy is increasingly defined by the need for continuous learning. What hasn’t been worked out is who should bear the responsibility for this ongoing re-training—the employee or the employer, or some mix of the two? And what role should higher education play? The reality in the tech sector is that skills have a short shelf-life. Software engineers must re-develop their skills every 12 to 18 months.

Topics for Continuous Education in Nursing Informatics: Results of a Survey Among 280 Austrian Nurses.

Stud Health Technol Inform. 2019;260:162-169

Authors: Ammenwerth E, Hackl WO

Abstract
BACKGROUND: Nurses are increasingly confronted with IT-based systems as part of their daily work. However, they often lack basic competencies in managing these complex systems.
OBJECTIVES: To analyze the need for continuous education in health informatics among Austrian nurses.
METHODS: Survey within five of the largest healthcare organizations in Austria. Overall, 280 nursing practitioners with IT responsibilities and nursing managers from middle and top management participated.
RESULTS: Participants assessed five topics (IT project management, IT in nursing, eHealth, nursing terminologies, and computer science basics) as important for continuous education in health informatics. Top management rated the importance of most topics higher than middle management did. Nursing practitioners gave ratings in between middle and top management.
CONCLUSION: Austrian nursing practitioners with IT responsibilities and nursing managers see a need for continuous education in health informatics. This supports findings of international recommendations of nursing informatics continuous education. There is, however, a lack of suitable opportunities for continuous education in Austria.

It’s Official: The M.B.A. Degree Is In Crisis

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2019-09-03 02:05

John Byrne, Forbes

Graduating M.B.A. students this year have had no trouble landing very good jobs.  Yet, for the second consecutive year, even the highest ranked business schools in the U.S. are beginning to report significant declines in M.B.A. applications . Last year, the top ten business schools combined saw a drop of about 3,400 M.B.A. applicants, a 5.9% falloff to 53,907 candidates versus 57,311 a year earlier (see Acceptance Rates At The Top 50 Business Schools). The University of Michigan Ross School of Business experienced the worst drop, an 8.5% decline from 3,485 to 3,188 apps. Harvard fell 4.5%, UC-Berkeley Haas 7.5%, Wharton 6.7%, Stanford 4.6%, and Booth 8.2%.

Capella U shares lessons from 5 years of competency-based education

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2019-09-03 02:02

By Hallie Busta, Education Dive
Capella University offers a look at the first five years of its direct assessment competency-based education program (CBE), FlexPath, in a report released Thursday that includes lessons learned so far and barriers to broader implementation of the model throughout higher ed. FlexPath participants finish bachelor’s degrees 59% faster and master’s degrees 42% faster than students in similar credit-hour programs, and they borrow 45% less financial aid than those in Capella’s equivalent credit-hour programs. They also persist over two years at higher rates. The data comes as regulators consider rules that intend to make it easier for colleges to explore alternative educational models and as a growing number of colleges adopt or express interest in CBE.

Google Adds Data to College Search

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Tue, 2019-09-03 02:01

By Sara Friedman, THE Journal
Google is making improvements to its college search feature to provide students with more detailed information on their college options. The tool now offers data on two-year colleges and certificate- and associate-level programs at four-year institutions. In June 2018, Google added the ability to allow users to search for data on four-year institutions and get information on college acceptance and graduation rates, costs, SAT scores and rankings. The update to the college search feature adds more detailed information tailored to students at two-year institutions, such as in-state tuition rates and the total cost of books and housing.

7 Things You Should Know About Digital Badges

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Mon, 2019-09-02 02:03

EDUCAUSE

Digital badges are validated indicators of skills or competencies, often representing the completion of a microcredential. Badges typically represent competencies not shown on a transcript, including learning from internships, volunteer work, and other co-curricular activities. Increasingly, badges conform to the Open Badges standard, and many are stackable, meaning that they can be credited toward an advanced badge, a certificate, or a degree.

The Growing Partisan Divide in Views of Higher Education

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sun, 2019-09-01 02:02

BY KIM PARKER, Pew Research Center

A new Pew Research Center survey finds that only half of American adults think colleges and universities are having a positive effect on the way things are going in the country these days. About four-in-ten (38%) say they are having a negative impact – up from 26% in 2012. The share of Americans saying colleges and universities have a negative effect has increased by 12 percentage points since 2012. The increase in negative views has come almost entirely from Republicans and independents who lean Republican. From 2015 to 2019, the share saying colleges have a negative effect on the country went from 37% to 59% among this group. Over that same period, the views of Democrats and independents who lean Democratic have remained largely stable and overwhelmingly positive.

Nursing Informaticians Address Patient Safety to Improve Usability of Health Information Technologies.

Stud Health Technol Inform. 2019;257:501-507

Authors: Williams A

Abstract
With the introduction of Health Information technology, the potential for unintended consequences can occur. Island Health developed a Quality Assurance review process to evaluate and identify opportunities for system optimization, education and engagement, policy changes, as well as identify unintended consequences of Electronic Health Record (EHR) implementations. The Patient Safety Learning System was utilized to audit and evaluate reported safety events for system breaks and opportunities, practice and policy, as well as workflow implications. The findings were then reported to the reporter, leadership, and through governance structures. This process identified that 242 reported patient safety events in 1 year has resulted in 30 (13.7%) of these events leading to EHR System optimization. Ultimately Island Health's Nurse Informaticists foster a culture of safety through their QA/QI Patient Safety event investigations which improve system usability and ultimately Patient Safety.

Commentary: Time for public sector to embrace artificial intelligence

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Sat, 2019-08-31 02:10

By Patrick A. McLaughlin and Tyler Richards
Tribune News Service

The National Institute for Standards and Technology just delivered a final plan to the White House for developing artificial intelligence standards for the private sector, in order to “maintain and strengthen America’s leadership in AI.” But the private sector seems to be developing standards just fine on its own. Where we really need to promote the use of AI (and establish AI standards) is actually within government, because in the few governmental bodies where AI has been adopted, the results have been remarkable.

World Economic Forum

From transportation solutions to video-streaming applications, artificial intelligence (AI) permeates almost every aspect of our lives. This includes government, where AI is increasingly making an impact. Consider the two examples below:

  • Emma chatbot: US Citizenship and Immigration Services receives a considerable amount of service requests daily. In response, a chatbot named Emma was deployed to address immigration questions. Emma, which can operate in both English and Spanish, handles more than a million immigration queries a month.
  • Firebird framework: Co-developed by Georgia Tech and the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department, Firebird helps the City of Atlanta prioritize buildings for inspection according to the building’s risk of fire.

Scott D. Miller: A ‘climate’ change taking place on U.S. campuses

Online learning update by Ray Schroeder - Fri, 2019-08-30 02:10

By Scott D. Miller , President Virginia Wesleyan University

The slowness of many colleges and universities to mobilize to combat the effects of changing demographics, rapid advances in technology, rising costs of tuition and students’ customer preference has shifted the campus ground. A June 18 article in The Atlantic points out that 3,122 four-year schools (many for-profit) existed in 2013-14. By last year, there were 2,902. Not all small colleges around the nation are failing.
