Immersive learning is a powerful way to bring mundane or complex concepts to life. Providing students with the opportunity to simulate a day in the life of a managing nurse, CFO or health policy administrator can help reinforce course content, engage students and assess their overall knowledge.
Jones & Bartlett Learning has partnered with Toolwire on the development of LearnScapes, a new virtual learning tool for students. This interactive scenario-based learning tool features scenes mapped directly to text book content and educates students on key course concepts as they progress.
Through cutting-edge immersive learning simulations students develop the critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills necessary to apply their knowledge to situations they will encounter in their future profession. Each LearnScapes features a series of episodes that walk a student through a virtual world where they make real-life decisions and interact with colleagues and patients to practice their skills and test their knowledge in a safe environment.
What do students have to say about LearnScapes?
|When you are having a discussion with someone in a mock hospital cafeteria or a café, it’s more appealing than if it were just questions on a piece of paper.”||I enjoyed using LearnScapes for Nursing Research, I think it helped to clarify the content that we were studying.”||“It made it seem like you were in a relaxed setting discussing things.“|
