#Change11 Virtual Worlds and Medical Education

An interesting article on Second Life for Medical Education.

Here are some videos on Virtual Worlds, Second Life and Medical Education.

In this Are Virtual Worlds still relevant in Education?

“The growth of VWs in education coincided with the edupunk and DIY U movements, which were both whispers of a larger conversation happening in higher education. As for-profit universities rose and public budgets fell, universities sought (and are still seeking) new models for the delivery of high quality education.”

“Ultimately, regardless of whether VWs are broadly used, their place in this broader conversation of technology’s place in the university and the struggles over maintaining high quality with smaller budgets, the movement that VWs initiated is one that we shouldn’t dismiss. Their adoption (or lack thereof) has a wider meaning. Educators know that there is room for improvement and we’re dedicated to looking for solutions. A single technology will not solve the issues.”
