ABSTRACT: Perceptions of the roles of social networking in simulation augmented medical education and training
Simulation-augmented education and training (SAET) is an expensive educational tool that may be facilitated through social networking technologies or Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL). This study examined the perceptions of medical undergraduates participating in SAET for knot tying skills to identify perceptions and barriers to implementation of social networking technologies within a broader medical education curriculum. The majority of participants (89%) found CSCL aided their learning of the technical skill and identified privacy and accessibility as major barriers to the tools implementation.
