Today technology must be part of our lives if we want to survive in this world where we can get everything with only a click if we know how to look for it. Combining technology, knowledge, design, and many other aspects to facilitate the learning process of students is what the video I watched this week talks about.
Giving the medicine students the opportunity to learn from the very beginning, practice and even learn how to do a surgery without touching a single body is something I found really amazing and almost unbelievable. There is an old adage I guess you all have heard before “Practice makes the master”, and I really believe knowing all the theory available in books is not enough if you do not have ability to put in on practice. So I found this idea really interesting and innovative to improve knowledge in the next generations. I guess it would be awesome if every school no matter the level of education (primary school, middle school, high school, university…) adopts these teaching techniques, at least for me it would be easier to understand everything.
By the way I think in this class we kind of have the opportunity to develop these skills, so we should start caring a little bit more about our progress.
