Web 2.0 and Medicine: The Slideshow

I finally uploaded the slideshow I presented at the Medicine Meets Vitual Reality conference in Long Beach; at the University of Yale and at the hospital of Greenwich. I talked about how to build an online reputation for a medical practice or a research, but as I gave these slideshows in person, I couldn’t include all the texts in the slides. I plan to record the oral part of the presentation as well. Feel free to give me any kind of feedback!

  3. Great presentation. It’s inspiring to see the spirit of the participatory web spreading to the field of medicine. However, I did not connect well with the ideas presented here in regards to education. Replicating the traditional instructional approach to education on SecondLife doesn’t seem to be the best use of the technology. A Web 2.0 approach to education should be more about empowering people to learn by create and exploring their own interests rather than just using technology to broadcast information from a teacher to students. I am particularly interested in this area and I’m part of the team that has built an online community for kids to share their own digital creations that they make in a new programming languages for children called Scratch. The technology is new but also the educational approach is more focused on using technology to empower people to create and express themselves. Very much in the spirit of Dewey, Montessori and Papert. I’d be interested in knowing what you think.

  5. Thank you so much for the encouragement, it means a lot to me!

    Andres, this is a very hard question. Of course, at this point web 2.0 helps us how to connect patients/medstudents/physicians in any parts of the world, but I really believe (just take a look at my recently published interview with Jay Parkinson, the web-savvy doctor) web 2.0 will change medical education and not just because of removing the geographical borders. These tools let you think creatively. The openness of web 2.0 may persuade you to use wikis, blogs or Google Calendar in your research or practice.

    I think web 2.0 can empower medical students to be better at screening the tremendous amount of medical information.

    What do you think?

    Super page!

    “take control of publishing … on the internet”

    You may want to clarify that statement as “take control” may restrict the rights of individuals to express reasoned (or unreasoned) opinions via the Internet medium. Perhaps a system that provides credibility via recommendations tied to professional standing would give a user some insight into the reliability of the source.
