Updating your technology knowledge
Colleges and online learning centers offer continuing education courses to help nurses advance their knowledge, develop new skills and further hone their existing skills.
Some states require nurses to participate in continuing education courses to renew their licenses.
These emerging systems aim to provide learning experiences delivered via online environments as well as mobile devices and tailored to the educational needs, the personal characteristics and the particular circumstances of the individual learner or a (massive) group of interconnected learners.
Such diverse learning experiences in real-world and virtual situations generates big data which provides rich potential for in-depth intelligent analysis and adaptive feedback as well as scaffolds whenever the learner needs it.
For instance, if your PCs are running slowly, simply upgrading the memory can help applications run more quickly and efficiently.
Adding a larger--and faster--hard drive can help as well.
During the last 15 years, we in education have moved at light speed in the area of educational technology.
