Goal "• Describe " • University, Commercial, Non-proﬁt, Government Radiology Education Resources" • For Apps focus on iOS because it has the most"• Identify " • Radiology Education Resources that are needed but have yet to be built" • An opportunity for inter-society cooperation and collaboration to build them"• Predict" • The future"
But First, A Little History " Nothing New Under the Sun• Universities are knowledge factories and engines of innovation" • 1989 - Yale - Echocardiography Encyclopedia - ﬁrst radiology hybrid digital / analog textbook" • 1991 - U of Iowa - Hyperlung - ﬁrst radiology digital textbook" • 1992 - U of Iowa - Virtual Hospital - ﬁrst medical + radiology digital library on Internet" • 1993 - U of Iowa - Virtual Hospital - ﬁrst medical + radiology Web site" • 1994 - U of Iowa - Hitchhikers Guide to Pediatric Imaging - ﬁrst radiology eBook / App"

What Is Difference Between eBook and Educational App? " Will educational Apps be replaced by iBooks2?"
Commercial Communities of Practice""Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern, a set of problems, or a passion about a topic, and who deepen their understanding of this area by interacting on an ongoing basis."

Education Resources That Do Not Yet Exist: An Opportunity for Intersociety Collaboration"• Your members are far ahead of where you are in regards to what Internet-based radiology educational resources they would like you to provide for them"
Education Resource Needed "Wiki Archive of Educational Exhibits From Meetings• Educational Exhibits" • Were printed posters ~ written in prose ~ discarded at end of meetings ~ few repurposed as review articles" • Now are PowerPoint presentations ~ written in bullet points and cant be repurposed for much"• Create Wiki for Educational Exhibits" • Return to posters written in prose ~ easily repurposed as review articles for journals" • Over time becomes archive that evolves into searchable textbook of radiology ~ StatDX competitor that would be free" • In 21st century, as number of radiologists in developing world continues to increase, and we move away from US-centric view of radiology, such a resource would build a bridge to them and be wonderful gift to the world"
Education Resource Needed Educational Social Network"• A community of radiology learning, teaching, sharing and collaboration" • Goal - build a radiology learning community around content, conversations and connections for purpose of improving patients health"• Move from learning solely as an individual to also learning in a group" • Lets us take learning from proﬁciency in radiology to next level - learning to excel in radiology - by creating passionate learners in radiology" • Proven to be educationally effective"
Education Resource Needed Massively Open Online Course (MOOC) "• Deﬁnition: " • Instructors, learners, course materials dispersed across open Web" • Posting, reﬂecting, sharing using social media at its core" • Curriculum unfolds in practice"• Started in Universities, becoming commercial" • Coursera, Udacity, EdX"• Radiology MOOC design" • Freely open to entire world ~ 3 month subspecialty course" • Lecture / week" • Problem set / week solved individually + collaboratively" • Machine grading of problem set" • Master teacher session to go over problem set" • User-contributed cases solved collaboratively" • Individual learning portfolio maintained and shared" • Certiﬁcate upon completion of course (pay to obtain?)"
Future e-Memory - Digitization Of Your Life"• A digital archive of your life" • "Lifelogging""• Made possible / inevitable by" • Most memories are digital" • Near-inﬁnite space to store them" • Every improving technology to recall them"• Captures, stores, organizes and makes retrievable your experience + reﬂected wisdom"• You become the librarian, archivist, cartographer and curator of your life"• Early example: Evernote"
Future Head Mounted Displays"• Google Glass" • For Augmented Reality and e-Memory"
Conclusion"• Radiology educational resources" • State of art " • What needs to be done" • Perhaps by inter-society collaboration?" • Future"• To review this talk:" • www.slideshare.net/michaeldalessandro"
