Using Public Health Education to Fight Ebola
News from Roehampton Online Student … – Vanguard:

THE outbreak of Ebola in parts of West Africa saw health officials, hospitals and other industry stakeholders reassessing their levels of preparedness for dealing with public health emergencies.

Widespread shortages of doctors, nurses and volunteers possessing requisite knowledge and skills for containing the epidemic was recorded in affected areas, resulting in the spread of the deadly disease from Guinea to Sierra Leone, Liberia, Senegal, Nigeria and outside the shores of Africa.

Against this backdrop, it has become imperative to be able to respond swiftly to stopping the spread of the disease to new localities. In order to achieve this, there is an urgent need for citizens to be empowered to respond to Ebola, alongside other infectious and deadly diseases, and also to properly deal with other chronic public health issues.

Important factor

This need for empowerment was an important factor for Daniel Tom-Aba. Currently occupying the role of Senior Data Manager and Team Lead for the Polio and Ebola Emergency Operations Center with the African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET) in Abuja, Tom-Aba coordinates all data management activities as well as builds software solutions geared at solving public health challenges.

The impact of e-learning in the workplace
News from Times of Malta:

E-learning is one of the most important services powered by the internet. It has the potential to transform how and when employees learn and integrates a learning culture with the work environment.

E-learning is not only about training and instruction but also about learning that is tailored to an individual. It brings together different fields such as online training, web-based training and technology driven instruction. Computers, tablets and smartphones facilitate and enhance the approach towards e-learning.

Today’s workplace is defined by a new employer-employee relationship. The employer provides the tools such as e-learning whereas employees have to manage and develop their skills and employability and ultimately are responsible for maintaining the value they add to the company.

E-learning can motivate employees to invest more time and energy in workplace learning. The key is that the alternative and flexible learning environments allowed by technology can reduce the obstacles and practical difficulties of scheduling learning activities around work schedules. The result is a more personal commitment and control over learning.

Research suggests that there is no significant difference in educational outcome between e-learning and traditional learning. This means that goals can be achieved irrespective of the…………… continues on Times of Malta

20 Facts About the Impact of E-Learning [#Infographic]
News from EdTech Magazine: Focus on Higher Education:

Online learning has become one of the fastest-growing industries in education technology, and it’s not slowing down anytime soon.

Plymouth Schools to make up snow days with eLearning on Saturdays
News from WSBT-TV:

PLYMOUTH –

What would your child think about having school on Saturday?

Believe it or not, Plymouth students are happy to do it because it means not having to make up snow days at the end of their school year.

Students will be doing online eLearning curriculum on three Saturdays: April 11, April 18 and May 16.

Last year was a test year for Plymouth high schoolers. They had eLearning classes from home for one Saturday.

“It was just like school,” says Angel Ulloa, a junior. “Wake up, do your normal routine, and do your homework.”

It went well, so the corporation decided to do the same thing this year for all grades.

The corporation says this is possible because every single one of their students is given a computer. Grades 2 through 12 have laptops, kindergartners and first graders have iPads.

While they know not everyone is a fan of school on Saturdays, assistant superintendent Andy Hartley says it’s better than the alternative.

“Adding onto the end of the year makes it rough, so the more we can keep things in line with the typical school year calendar, the better,” Hartley explains.

Hartley says homework won’t be due until the following Tuesday. Plymouth High School will be open for those who need Internet access, and teachers will be available to h…………… continues on WSBT-TV
