We found some great discounts for teachers at every level that will spice up your summer break. Hope you enjoy!
We're at the MoSALPN conference today and tomorrow and are having a great time talking to students and instructors in Missouri.
At the IACTE Conference a few weeks ago, I met one of the creators of the Paige and Paxton series. For those of you who aren't familiar with the books, they're a way to introduce young minds to STEM fields using fun books, activities and puzzles.
We realize we're a few days late to announce the winner of the 2013 Techie Teacher of the Year Award, but with all this technology use keeping us busy, it took a bit of time for us to touch base with this year's winner, Colleen Royle, MSN RN from Minnesota State University, Mankato.
Join us for a free seminar on Teaching Critical Thinking with your Academic EHR System on Dec 18, 2013 3:00 PM EST.
All you have to do is register using the following link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2285574966860185858
Diane Yeager, Founder of EHR Tutor and FreeNurseTutor.com, will be doing a fifteen minute example lesson on how to use any Academic EHR System to teach critical thinking when examining a cardiac patient's chart. Our purpose is to share ideas for how instructors can use EHRs in the classroom for more than just charting.
We welcome any attendees who currently have an Academic EHR System or are considering purchasing a system like EHR Tutor in the future.
Please keep in mind, the first 15 minutes will be dedicated to a quick example of how to use a cardiac patient to encourage critical thinking and any related questions. We kindly ask you to hold any questions about using or purchasing EHR Tutor specifically until after 3:15 at which point Diane will remain on the webinar to answer any questions you may have related to our specific program.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
See you there! And feel free to pas this information on to any Nursing, Health Occupations or CNA teachers you know.
For those of you who are not subscribed to the FreeNurseTutor.com newsletter where we mentioned our Cyber Monday deal, I'm including the information below. Basically, if you request a demo today you'll get a half a year of EHR Tutor for your classroom for free. You don't even have to make your final decision until the end of the year, just schedule and demo and start thinking about how to use an Academic EHR in your classroom:
For those schools serving rural populations or running programs that provide distance learning to sparsely populated communities, here are some grants that make paying for an academic EHR (like EHR Tutor!!) a little easier.
1. The DLT Grant Program
$50,000 - $500,000
What the website says:
The DLT Grant Program competitively selects and funds projects that place distance learning and/or telemedical equipment in rural facilities capable of linking local service providers of education and/or healthcare directly to educators and medical professionals and specialists located in distant areas. Rural facilities can include public or private schools, training facilities, higher learning institutions, libraries, health clinics, rural hospitals, ambulance services and other rural community facilities. The kinds of learning and health care services that are funded originate at the grass roots level and represent needed services which are tailored to the areas from which the projects originate.
What it means for your school:
Does your school provide e-learning or distance learning options? If so you may qualify by connecting rural students to "education/nursing specialists". EHR Tutor fits in to this grant perfectly considering it's a web based program. Which means, students can log in anywhere in the world (perfect for e-learnings and distance learning)
