For now lets worry about the iPOD generation

Characteristics of the ipod generation l.jpg
Characteristics of the iPod Generation

  • “Digital Natives” of the Technology Age

  • Process Information Rapidly

  • Learn Interactively

  • Share Knowledge Informally

  • Group Centric

  • Constant Connectivity

  • Require High Levels of Feedback

  • Value Education

Are they really that different l.jpg
Are They Really That Different?

  • Use Increasingly Sophisticated Technology

  • Shorter Attention Spans

  • Quicker Reaction & Response

  • Read More Than Any Other Generation

  • Difficulty Reasoning & Reflecting

  • Still Undergoing Brain Development

  • Face More Challenges Than Ever Before

Is our educational system designed for them l.jpg
Is Our Educational SystemDesigned For Them?

  • View Lectures as Boring & Uninteresting

  • Become Easily Disengaged

  • Used to Learning in a Highly Interactive Way

  • Need Instant Feedback & Evaluation

  • Want to Work Smarter Not Harder

  • Prefer to Seek Information at Their Own Pace

  • Information Technology Skills May Exceed Those of Their Teachers

The impact of globalization l.jpg
The Impact of Globalization

  • Related to Economics & Business

  • Implications for Education, Health Care, & Information Technology Sharing

  • The U.S. is no longer Predominant in terms of Research, Science, & Technology

  • Next Generation Needs a Competitive Edge

  • Gen-Y is the First Generation in Decades that may not Surpass Previous Ones

Benefits of e learning l.jpg
Benefits of e-Learning

  • Greater Mobility & Convenience

  • Increases Course Availability

Challenges of online courses l.jpg
Challenges of Online Courses

  • Interactive Laboratory Exercises

  • Understanding Difficult Topics

  • Group Work and Interaction

  • Instructor/Student Communication

  • Class Integrity: Attendance and Exams

  • Retention Rate

Laboratory ideas l.jpg
Laboratory Ideas

  • Campus/Hybrid – Face-to-Face or Online with Labs on Campus

  • Simulations – Do not provide practical laboratory skills or measurement, instrumentation, and analysis.

  • Commercial Lab Kits – LabPaqs dispel the myth of online lab science

Slide19 l.jpg

Examples Of Exercises

  • EXERCISE 1: Using the Microscope

  • EXERCISE 2: Histology

  • EXERCISE 3: Classification of Body Membranes

  • EXERCISE 4: Overview of the Skeletal System

  • EXERCISE 5: The Axial and Appendicular Skeleton

  • EXERCISE 6: Joints and Body Movements

  • EXERCISE 7: Organization of Muscle Tissue

  • EXERCISE 8: Gross Anatomy of the Muscular System

  • EXERCISE 9: Muscle Physiology

  • EXERCISE 10: Organization of Nervous Tissue

  • EXERCISE 11: Gross Anatomy of the Central Nervous System

  • EXERCISE 12: Reflex and Sensory Physiology

Conclusions l.jpg

  • Generational Differences are not Definitive

  • Observations About Online Learning

  • Technology can be Used to Enhance Instruction

  • Distance Education and Face-to-Face Instruction can be Equally Effective

  • Access to Information does not Equal Knowledge
