Social Media and Radiology Education

Are We #Ready?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Social media has become integrated into the lives of millions of people, but it has only recently been explored as a potential teaching tool. There is a body of literature to suggest that today's learners desire use of these interactive platforms for learning and that they result in higher degrees of student satisfaction, although it is not yet clear that a greater degree of knowledge transfer or retention is achieved. There are barriers to implementation in a curriculum, but as we learn to overcome these barriers and find new and creative ways to leverage social media we as educators will meet our students needs in the era of “web 2.0” and the digital native generation.
