Abstract

RAMIREZ ZULUAGA, Liliana Patricia  and  TAMAYO ALZATE, Óscar Eugenio. NEUROLOGIC SEMIOLOGY DEEP LEARNING BY MEANS OF A COMPUTING TOOL. Hacia promoc. Salud [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.2, pp.109-120. ISSN 0121-7577.

Objective: to develop and implement an interactive tool that provides a virtual experience in the field of neurological semiology and is conducive to achieve deep learning and improvement in the learning process of medicine students at Universidad de Caldas in 2010. Materials and methods: cohort observational analytical research with development of two computing tools: educational BLOG and CD with audiovisual material. Population: 52 medicine students at Universidad de Caldas who were taking the General Semiotics class in the first semester, 2010: 24 men and 28 women ages 18 to 24. Thirty students participated in the educational BLOG and 22 did not. Students were evaluated in three moments: at the beginning, in the middle and at the end of the semester. Four deep learning categories were evaluated in each moment: analytical ability, richness in technical vocabulary, conceptual competence and problem solving ability. Results: most of the students who participated in the BLOG had dominantly appropriate responses in each of the categories of deep learning. Conclusions: the use of a computing tool for neurological semiology teaching and learning proved useful as a facilitator in the acquisition of deep learning. The BLOG development allowed students to gain confidence at the moment of performing the patients' clinical examination.

Keywords : Semiology; neurology; learning; teaching; TICs; medical education.
