Don't Graduate from "Google University"

Posted by Sandeep Shah on May 18, 2016 3:04:54 PM

We recently came across some research that Google searches can give your brain "an inflated perception of self-knowledge", a likely condition that will soon be classified as a mental disorder by DSM-5 (paradoxically, when we googled this syndrome, we came across a condition called Dunning–Kruger effect that deals with the illusory superiority of this kind.  Clearly I am being facetious to make a point that this should not give me a license to practice as a Psychiatrist!)

Clinical Log aka nTrack – HIPAA Compliant Tool

Posted by Nursing Educator on Jan 28, 2016 12:50:32 AM

 

Students need to be adequately prepared for the real-life clinical environment. Paper based clinical logs can get lost and don’t offer aggregate reporting.

Developed in collaboration with pre-licensure and graduate nursing programs, nTrack allows students to track their clinical experience and patient encounters. Additionally they can track time spent with each patient and at clinical site.

nTrack App is part of the nTrack Clinical Log system, which can be customized and deployed at your institution.

  • It’s better than a paper Blue book – our electronic log will reduce your workload by allowing you to quickly review students’ clinical logs and provide feedback online
  • Ability to provide ongoing feedback throughout each course
  • Track clinical experiences and check-offs throughout students education
  • View individual’s performance or aggregate data across the program
  • Easy access to data required for program accreditation
  • Documentation on individual’s performance for credits and graduation requirements

Student Benefits:

  • Access to vital nursing information at the point of care
  • Receive faculty feedback in near real-time
  • Gain experience entering data into an EHR-like system
  • Documentation for portfolios when applying for employment

Posted by Nursing Educator on Dec 12, 2015 12:56:34 AM

Gamification of education - Is it a buzz or the way millennials learn, retain and recall knowledge?

Why gaming in eLearning?

  1.  Games are fun, have levels, tolerate failure, are competitive, award points and badges
  2. Games on mobile devices offer flexible learning environment
  3. Self paced with instant feedback

Skyscape has developed Snap Word gaming platform which includes a free APP with:

  • Cue cards and answers that are grouped into levels and modules
  • Coins are earned or traded for hints and certificates awarded at completion of each level

Use your imagination to create your game cards and distribute to student group(s).  Get started with our library that includes:

  • 500+ skeletal, muscular and organ systems images
  • Add calculations, clinical scenarios or NCLEX questions

We’ve built the framework but the possibilities are  endless.

Try the free app and contact us to discuss how we can work together to gamify the classroom.

Did someone say "Delightful"?

Posted by Sandeep Shah on Dec 7, 2015 3:20:00 PM
In today's world there are far too many mobile apps. It is very difficult to deploy an app that will attract users’ attention.  It is even harder to release something that  will make its way among all others up to the top successfully. Definitely, one could say that a secret ingredient that turns simple apps to outstanding apps is the customization touches that developers and designers apply to even smallest details that usually most programmers don’t deal with.
