Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Abstract

Last week Sanna and Laura had the pleasure of attending a presentation by Roma Maguire, professor of cancer care and head of eHealth research at the University of Surrey. Roma spoke about the need for personalised care to be more holistic instead of focussing solely on biomedical outcomes. Connected health is an ecosystem of care with the right information offered to people at the right time. Central to this ecosystem is ICT which allows for information to flow seamlessly through health and social care, offering a much more robust service. Through this shifting of responsibilities, Roma envisions a future where hospital care is the domain for the seriously ill and an emphasis is placed on communities to share the extra workload. Roma works at the 5G Innovation Centre in Surrey which focusses on mobile technologies and aims to offer a dense communication network to allow even the most remote areas to be connected.
