ABSTRACT

Aims To establish an innovative web-based COVID adapted Neonatal Resuscitation Workshop (CaNRW) which provides regular Simulation Based Education in neonatal resuscitation to meet service need and training demand and at the same time satisfy strict infection control measures imposed on classroom simulation based training in a regional hospital with delivery of 6000 per annum during COVID-19 outbreak in Hong Kong since 2021. Methods A CaNRW was developed with the Multi-Disciplinary Simulation and Skills Centre (MDSSC) in January 21. It consists of a 1-hour lecture delivered in YouTube;a 1- hour video on skills recommended by Neonatal Resuscitation Program of American Academy of Pediatrics and a real time birth related drill performed at MDSSC- Pict 1. All trainees participate it online except those involved in the drill. All providers can join the drill and debriefing online simultaneously. Upon competition, they were asked to complete an evaluation. Results Total 113 providers consisting of pediatric and emergency department residents, neonatal nurses and midwives joined three CaNRW in 2021. Providers didn't report difficulties in viewing the program through electronic devices. Program facilitators felt more comfortable in executing this CaNRW. Seventy-three evaluations were analyzed. The providers reported this CaNRW was useful with high level of satisfaction (Score:4.41/5). They strongly recommended it to colleagues (Score:8.53/10). Nurses and midwives were granted continuous nursing education credits (figure 1). Conclusion Our data data shows that this web-based innovative CaNRW is feasible and well accepted by trainees. It provides regular neonatal resuscitation training and satisfies strict infection control measures imposed on classroom simulation based training amidst of COVID outbreak in a regional hospital in Hong Kong since 2021. Both neonatal nurses and midwives gained training credits to fulfill their continuous professional education. Therefore, this mode of web-based CaNRW worth promoting and should be made available to more trainees and departments in hospitals where strict infection control measures for classroom teaching is in place amidst of COVID- 19 Outbreak..

ABSTRACT

‘Cloud Computing awareness and adoption is the need of the hour, to meet the current market demands and expectations in terms of quality of education and the competition that market is currently facing, it has become crucial to use technology to the best of its ability to be the bare minimum to land a safe and comfortable jobs that the business atmosphere in and around our country is looking forward to. Either be it a boon or a bane, this is being penetrated to a level that companies like BYJUS, white Hat Jr,, and many more Ed-Tech companies have started programs to preschoolers such as coding, game designing, making them understand the basics of UI/UX aspects. This is very much similar to the 2000-2008 fame waves that competitive exams and colleges like IIT’s and other elite colleges have seen. So it is suggested and insisted to make our working force of the education industry make them well aware of these aspects and prepare them future ready.Objective: To understand the level of awareness on cloud computing among academic practitioners in the Vijayawada and Guntur districts and to determine the level of awareness on the emerging technology. Methodology: A structured questionnaire and survey approach are used to perform the methodological research. Findings: The research identifies that a more collaborative training (train the trainers) is required for the cloud computing technologies among the teaching fraternity. The institutions have incorporated it in their syllabus as professional elective but the awareness and skilling among the practitioners has to be drawn.

ABSTRACT

This paper examines the response by a Vocational Education and Training (VET) provider in the Northern Territory (NT) of Australia to the travel and social distancing restrictions brought about by COVID-19. The paper commences with a description of the impact of COVID-19 on the VET sector. The paper then describes the VET regulatory environment prior to February 2020 and the responsibility of VET providers to comply with the requirements of the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), in the delivery of VET programs to domestic and international students. A discussion of the lack of a specific vocational education pedagogy, the complexity of delivering VET programs online as well as current research findings in this area follows. A description of the College provides the context to examine the impact of COVID-19 on the delivery of programs in the Northern Territory VET sector. The paper describes how the College, which had a high international student cohort, migrated their courses online in order to remain viable in the highly volatile and unforeseen circumstances brought about by COVID-19. In order to ascertain the effectiveness of the online delivery of course offerings, a questionnaire and a series of face to face and telephone interviews were conducted with key stakeholders. The mixed method approach employed in this research was consistent with contemporary social and educational research. The paper concludes with the call for a new paradigm and policy shift in Vocational Education and Training post COVID-19. © 2022, Adult Learning Australia. All rights reserved.

ABSTRACT

Background: The Covid-19 pandemic has meant a modifcation of the patterns of the doctor-patient relationship, favoring online visits and reducing face-to-face visits. Likewise, the implementation of Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs) that do not require the intervention of the doctor in our clinical practice and that given their close relationship with the clinical activity of chronic infammatory joint diseases (CIJD) has favored an empowerment of patients and can allow the development of the online visit. Objectives: Know the use and acceptance of patients with CIJD: rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and spondyloarthropathies (SpA) of a non-face-to-face online visit, through a digital environment. Methods: Patients were included in a platform called Rheumanet for access by username and passwords (https://www.laconsultacercadetI.com/). At the time of inclusion, demographic variables were collected: date of birth, sex, level of education (primary education, secondary education, vocational training, further education and higher education), distance from the hospital to the patient's home, and clinical variables such as diagnosis: RA, PsA or SpA, as well as the duration of the disease. Prior to the appointment, patients were encouraged to complete a PRO survey to assess their clinical situation: Routine Assessment of Patient Index Data 3 (RAPID3) for RA, Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI) for SpA and RAPID3 and/or BASDAI for the PsA. Both the RAPID3 and BASDAI were scored for the patient's knowledge and assigned to a color scale based on disease activity in green (remission or low activity), orange (moderate activity) or red (severe activity). Likewise, they were ordered to express through a free text what they would tell us as if they were in a face-to-face consultation. Complementary tests (analytical, radiological studies and others) are obtained simultaneously from the medical records and a joint assessment of the visit is carried out. Results: Between September 1, 2020 and January 31, 2022, a total of 248 patients (113 RA, 53 SpA and 82 PsA) were included in the platform. 172 (69.3%) patients used the digital platform and made at least one non-face-to-face visit during follow-up. The number of online visits made by each patient ranged from 1 to a maximum of 13 visits. 80 patients (70.7%) suffered from RA, 40 (75.4%) from SpA and 52 (63.4%) from PsA. The number of patients who made non-face-to-face visits was 38 (72.3%) for a disease duration of <5 years and 137 (64.5%) for >5 years. When the ages of the patients were analyzed, the number of patients who made visits was 75 (73.5%) between 18 and 30 years old, 50 (67.7%) between 30 and 50 and 47 (66.4 %) from 50 years. According to the degree of activity of the disease, 75 patients were in remission or low activity at some point during the visits, 63 patients with moderate activity and 34 with severe activity. The distribution according to level of education was: 11 (6.3%) primary education, 21 (12.2%) secondary education, 37 (21.5%) vocational training, 63 (36.6%) further education and 40 (23.2%)higher education. The number of online visits was higher in patients who lived at a distance of 50 km or more from the hospital, reaching 100% of the visits in this subgroup of patients. Conclusion: The online visit through a digital platform through PROs is well accepted by our population with CIJD, especially in the young population, with a higher cultural level and whose home is far from the hospital. The online visit was made by patients regardless of the severity of their disease activity. Speed and ease of use using PROs already known to the patient and clinician is an important consideration for rheumatolo-gists working in healthcare systems where patient contact time is limited. It would be interesting to obtain this information in non-pandemic situations such as COVID-19, which would make it possible to assess actual acceptance and its use in this type of patient in circumstances in which fear of contagion is not a variabl to consider.

ABSTRACT

Vocational education and training (VET) plays a central role in the lifelong learning (LLL) continuum. In Europe Union and in Latvia, LLL is recognized and accepted as a tool that promotes human entrepreneurship, employability and resilience, active civic participation, social inclusion and personal self- development. The COVID-19 pandemic has seriously disrupted standard education and training activities, including VET across Europe. Young people entering the workforce at this time will find it harder to secure their first job. VET have to provide people with skills and competences for work which help them to cope with emergency situations and economic shocks and get or create jobs in demand on the labour market. Transversal key competences (TKC) is an essential part of VET. Professional and general competences reflect an individual's ability to work in a specific context, i.e. professional environment;at the same time they presume a set of abilities which we call transversal. The aim of this research is to analyze the process of implementation of four TKC (learning to learn, social and civic competences, initiative-taking and entrepreneurship, and cultural awareness and expression) in VET curriculum in Latvia. It is part of wider study of the National Centre for Education of Latvia and Erasmus + Srategic Partnership project Developing, assessing and validating transversal key competences in the formal initial and continuing vocational education and training (TRACK-VET), (2017-2020). The project produce detailed analysis of the systemic solutions, practices, and techniques in six EU countries regarding development and assessment of TKC.

ABSTRACT

The covid-19 pandemic has changed the entire life order of government and society. Including also having an impact on vocational high schools, learning that was originally carried out in schools now has to take place with distance learning. This study examines the effect of interactive multimedia to enhance meaningful learning in the context of technical and vocational education and training schools. This research method uses a literature review, namely by finding sources that are relevant to the object of research. Even though learning is currently being carried out using distance learning, of course, teachers are still required to provide quality learning to achieve meaningful learning. The limitations of distance learning are a challenge for vocational high schools because the implementation of learning in vocational high schools is mostly carried out by work practices both in schools, places of business, and industry. Thus, the development and use of educational technology become important. One of the existing technologies is interactive multimedia. Interactive multimedia is a learning media that combines text, animated video, images, sound, and evaluation in learning media. © 2021 ACM.

ABSTRACT

Data are playing an increasingly important role in the development of industry–education cooperation strategies in vocational education and training. The objective of this study was to promote the comprehensive progress of an industry–education cooperation system and improve the effect of the application of big data technology in this system. First, we designed of a big data technology application in an intelligent management platform system for industry–education cooperation. Second, we analyzed the synthetical design of the system. Finally, we optimized and designed a support vector machine (SVM) data mining (DM) algorithm model based on big data, and evaluated the model. The results revealed that the designed algorithm model provides outstanding advantages compared with similar algorithm models. In general, the highest average computation time of the designed SVM algorithm model is about 95 ms. The overall average calculation time linearly decreases around 200 iterations and tends to be stable, and the lowest overall average computation time is about 20 ms. In the DM process, the highest accuracy rate of the model is about 97%, and the lowest is about 92%. The DM accuracy rate is always stable as the number of iterations of the model continues to increase. The designed model slowly increases the occupancy rate of the system in the process of increasing computing time. At about 60 min, the system occupancy rate of the model tends to be stable, and the highest is maintained at about 23%. This study not only provides technical support for the optimization of DM algorithms with big data technology, but also contributes to the integrated development of industry–education cooperation systems.

ABSTRACT

This study was designed to see the learning readiness of vocational education students who were carried out online during the Covid-19 pandemic. Vocational education which has a peculiarity is the mastery of skills, so we want to see the extent of students' readiness to carry out online learning. In a quantitative research approach with a survey method, a survey was conducted on 247 vocational education students via a google form. The collected data were analyzed, then the results of the study revealed that students were fully ready to carry out online learning, starting with digital literacy, independent learning, and communication. Overall students are ready to do online learning, Judging from the characteristics of vocational education, there is practicum material that can be handled by the use of several supporting learning media. But in controlling themselves during the learning process (learning control), students have not been able to fully control themselves during the learning process. The online learning process provides various facilities for students, but still, the teacher has a role as a guide and guides students so that the learning process is following the expected goals. © 2022, Rajarambapu Institute Of Technology.

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 pandemic is still a major global health problem that had substantial consequences on people's daily lives. This paper evaluates the impact of education and institutional management on Vocational Education and Training (VET) schools in Oman during the COVID-19 period. The purpose of this study is to understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and identify possible challenges that may affect its impact on economic growth. This qualitative research is used as the main methodology of the study. Qualitative data are collected through convenience sampling of 108 VET college students and staff using interviews and questionnaires. The study revealed that the administration plays an important role in economic growth. The students suggested that the national educational administration of the government of Oman plays an important role in their education and that this in turn churns out industry-ready individuals who will impact the economic growth. The government's role, especially financially post-pandemic lockdown, will be a critical determinant of VET's impact on economic growth. This study introduces a new perspective on education administration from the perspective of students and staff of VET colleges.

ABSTRACT

Young people in non-academic track secondary educational settings ('Hauptschule' and 'Realschule') are more affected by uncertainties in their transition from school to vocational education and training. The Coronavirus pandemic reinforces this situation by having major effects on the labour market. The paper is based on a cohort study with two parallel longitudinal samples (2017/18 and 2019/20). It aims to analyse how the trajectories and future worries of young people in non-academic track educational settings have changed due to the pandemic and what role personal resources and social background indicators play in this process. The results show that during the pandemic: 1) both migrants and young women struggle more with worries about their future, and 2) personal resources, such as vocational goal orientation, become more important for continuity and autonomy in the process of career choice.

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the continuity to technical and vocational education and training (TVET) training activities and assessment thereby affecting and/or threatening the completions dates for many learners. Several institutions must revisit their assessment methods and tools for work-based learning during such pandemics. This study investigated the innovative assessment methods adopted by private TVET institutions to assess work-based learning during the pandemic. A quantitative research design was used to gather data using online questionnaires. Online questionnaires were used to effect social distancing and getting instant feedback. Purposive sampling was used to select research participants amongst TVET lecturers and attachment coordinators in private TVET colleges. Descriptive statistics were used to present research results using quantitative analysis and descriptions for clarifications. Findings indicated that assessment of practical skills virtually remains a challenge, and most of the institutions kept on using their old ways of assessing.

ABSTRACT

ObjectiveA considerable amount of research identified socio-economic status and cognitive ability as robust predictors, the influence of student’s ability to delay gratification (ADG) on their educational transition choice doesn’t received researcher’s attention. To address this gap, the present study examined the incremental power of students ADG in predicting the dichotomous choice i.e. the choice of general or vocational education after successful completion of compulsory schooling.MethodsAmid Covid-19 pandemic, cross sectional survey via an online mode was found feasible for the data collection process in our study. An online link of survey questionnaire was created in the Google forms and administered to (N = 1024) grade 8 students in the Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir, India. Multiple binary logistic regressions were conducted to predict the students’ choice, and odds ratios and average marginal effects were reported for better interpretation of results.ResultsOur results showed that students tracking choice differed significantly with respect to their gender and locale (smaller effect), ADG (medium effect), and cognitive ability and socio-economic status (larger effect). The probability of choosing the track of vocational education (with general education track as a baseline category) increases as students ADG decreases, and vice versa. This association of student’s ADG with the choice of vocational education track held same over and above the covariates—socio-economic status, cognitive ability, gender and locale.

ABSTRACT

Given the occurrence of the Covid-19 pandemics, the art teaching process within the higher education system had to incorporate the on-line experienc, with the help of dedicated software platforms. This paper proposes a solution for making remote teaching more effective for hearing-impaired students, so that they may have access to the oral explanations of the teaching staff, given the circumstances of the lack of linguistic IT support for the Romanian language in the dedicated software for PCs.

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the willingness and influencing factors with novel coronavirus vaccines(COVID-19 vaccines) among college students in Shanghai. Methods From February 23 to March 15, 2021, a web based questionnaire survey was conducted among students from four colleges to analyze the willingness rate of COVID-19 vaccines. Multivariate Logistic regression was used to analyze influencing factors of the willingness to receive vaccines. Results Of 4 462 subjects, 78.04% were willing to receive COVID-19 vaccines. Logistic regression analysis showed that students from the technology university and the vocational school had higher willingness to vaccinate (OR=1.53, 1.50), compared with those from medical college. Respondents did not agree that vaccines are important for protecting health (OR=0.11) and did not agree that all vaccines marketed through National Medical Products Administration are safe (OR=0.42) were less willing to be vaccinated. Those who had no one nearby to vaccinate against COVID-19 were less willing to be vaccinated (OR=0.68). The main reasons for refusing or hesitating to be vaccinated were concerned about the safety(73.88%) and efficacy(55.61%) of the vaccine. Further investigation showed that 37.86%, 48.27% and 35.31% of respondents who had previously chosen not to vaccinate or were unsure about vaccinating against COVID-19 were willing to vaccinate if recommended by the government, doctors, relatives and friends, respectively. Conclusion The willingness rate of COVID-19 vaccination among college students was high in Shanghai. The relevant departments should do a good job in the coordination of vaccination so that the vaccination work can be carried out effectively.
