Learning by doing

Online learning is the opposite in some ways of traditional learning. Maybe I should be specific and say that instructional technology is different. I've spent most of my educational career getting positive reinforcement for following directions. Success with using technology, in my opinion, has more to do with a willingness to strike out on your own. I'm beginning to realize that I have to muddle through the confusion and keep trying things until I find something that works. In some ways this runs counter to the mindset we cultivate as nurses. If we were to jump into our patient care with a "I'll push this button and see what happens" attitude we might kill someone. This would be an interesting concept to research. smlehman
