"Learn it. Punch it. Share it."

– Saad Jawaid, @edtimestories

At work, we often have moments like:

“Hmm, I didn’t know that!” … “Ahh, that’s interesting!” … “Oh, that’s new!”

In such highly stressful and pressured working environments, it is essential to celebrate self-improvement. mEDistation aims to capture such learning moments when they happen and to avoid them getting buried under the stress of work.

How does it work?

  1. Using a wall-mounted iPad located on the shop floor, ED staff can enter in any learning points they encounter during their shift.

  2. Our online form asks one simple question… “What have you learnt today?”

  3. Staff should aim to enter in at least one learning point per shift.

  4. Every two weeks, 15 learning points will be collected & shared (anonymously) with the rest of the department.

  5. Every three months (or sooner) each staff member will receive all their learning points collated in an email for entering into their ePortfolio on RCEM, Horus or RCGP.
