Let’s face it: Ours is truly the great age of technology. And while many parents may want their children to enjoy the simple innocence of childhood, free of the risks that an overreliance on tech can yield, the simple truth is that technology isn’t just a staple in the lives of children today, but it’s also inevitably going to form the cornerstone of their future success.

In other words, there’s just no denying the central importance of technology in the lives of children today. Millennial parents, however, understand perhaps better than most that this is by no means a necessarily bad thing. As the first generation of digital natives, millennials understand what it means to grow up with a device in your hands.

Best of all, they understand the unique power of technology as a learning tool. It is for this reason that millennial parents and educators are increasingly forging a potent alliance for the use of technology in education.

The Future of Medical Education Relies on AI & Robotics

By Devin Partida

Meet Pepper, Humber River Hospital's Humanoid Robot | HRH Foundation

Medical education is not something obtained easily or quickly. Traditional medical education requires a four-year undergraduate program, a four-year graduate program in medical school, and a residency that can take anywhere from three to seven years, not to mention the tests necessary to practice medicine in the state they live in. Everything from basic treatments to delicate surgeries requires practice.

While some of these procedures can be practiced on cadavers or dummies, the best education comes from hands-on experience. However, these experiences aren’t always available. How can we ensure the next generation of medical professionals has the training and education to care for future patients? What role will artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics play in the future of medical education?

The marriage between health science and technology has been a long and happy one. However, that union has perhaps never been more important than it is today. Now, more than ever, state-of-the-art technologies, from bioengineering to artificial intelligence (AI), are playing a leading role in optimizing patient care, supporting healthcare providers, and expanding the scope of medical knowledge.

Among the most significant and promising of these technologies in the domain of health, sciences are robotics.

These technologies are not only increasingly being used in clinics, hospitals, and operating rooms, but also in health sciences classrooms at every level, including primary, secondary, and post-secondary education. This article explores the reasons why you should begin integrating robotics into your health sciences courses and identifies key strategies for doing so.

All children deserve the right to be set up for success, and one of the ways children are prepared to do their best in school is based on their access to technology. Technology is a great equalizer for all children, and all children can become better learners through the use of technology — especially children with disabilities. Despite this benefit of technology in the classroom, however, not all technology is accessible to all children. How can parents and educators ensure all students, no matter their ability, receive the best education they can?
