The Role of Academic Technology in Emergency Services Education
While we speak of education at RescueDigest most times we’re talking about training and education in leadership or operational issues. Floating somewhere in on and around those issues though is the purely academic aspect of education. While it may not seem very “boots on the ground” academic study is critical to emergency services as foundational knowledge, in development of critical thinking skills and even as a template for “grittier” field and clinical training.
We’ve preciously addressed the topics of Student-Centered Education and Digital Education in separate RescueDigest Resources, and through these we received a contact from OnlineUniversities.com about the integration of technology in the academic classroom. So we began to think about how it could be applied to emergency services.
So take a look at their original blog post on the subject and their infographic below.
What do you think? Have you taken a college level class that effectively incorporated technology in the classroom? Do you use technology like this in your emergency services education? Is it good? Is it bad? Does it depend?
