Nowadays medical ethics education has become a universal component of undergraduate formal medical training in most countries. From the standpoint of vertical integration, medical ethics should be taught step by step throughout preclinical and clinical education. However, examples of well-integrated ethics programmers, quite often found in the literature, are mostly limited to Western industrialized countries.1 Significant progress has been made in developing the place of ethics…Continue

In 2007 I began working with alternative education. This was a full time job of teaching out of school suspended students social studies and English. Last year this job went to part time. I now work with OSS students in the morning and another alternative program in the afternoon teaching 9th and 10th grade Global Studies to students with severe emotional, behavioral, social and lack stability at home. Not all my students meet all…Continue

I haven’t completed much research in the past on social networks because I’ve spent my time working at an Elementary School where social networking is not allowed. I’ve also been pretty much blocked from every social media site by my district’s proxy. After reviewing the various sites I understand that many of them collect student information and is probably one reason why they’re blocked. I was really surprised to see that the one social network tool that’s approved in my district is…Continue
I know everyone is ready for that first bright day when our students return to socialize and learn. But here are a few ideas for using Google Apps, including an activity for Veterans Day: a short 150 word essay on the simple topic "Honor All Veterans." This was sponsored by our local VFW last year, but two of my students carried it further, and if you use Google Apps, you might want to try this, or adapt it to another project.
Google Docs is our tool to…Continue

A week ago my knowledge of the education system of Finland was, to be honest, almost non-existent. I knew that they were consistently ranked number one of all “Western” countries in PISA testing but had no idea how they did it. Then, last weekend, I attended a keynote address by Professor Teemu Leinonen, Professor of New Media Design and Learning at the Media Lab of Aalto…Continue

Education needs to be different from its current form to meet the needs of 21st century society. I am concerned that the reforms and legislations of the last twenty years have not been effective in…Continue

It’s Easter. I’m sitting with my coffee with an Easter egg, enjoying the delicious blending of coffee and chocolate while reading, with considerable pleasure it has to be said, some fascinating traffic on the blogs around the world – many of them debating the merits or otherwise of the Khan Academy and the recent speech at TED by the Academy’s founder Salman Khan. Then…Continue
