What’s your definition of “arise”? According to dictionary.com, it’s best known as: “to awaken; wake up; to move upward; ascend; to come into being, action, or notice; originate; appear; spring up”.
All of these exciting action words can help describe the ARISE project happening at all 16 technical colleges across the state!
The ARISE project uses iPads and the ARIS app to add augmented reality to simulated learning experiences in all healthcare disciplines including: Nursing, Respiratory Therapy, Emergency Medical Technicians, Paramedics, Medical Assistants, and Pharmacy Technicians. It is funded by the TAACCCT 4 ACT for Healthcare grant from the U.S. Department of Labor. Developed as an open educational resource, it is shared amongst all 16 colleges and worldwide through Skills Commons.
The ARISE project incorporates videos, images and sounds into high fidelity simulations that instructors and students access through a QR code and an iPad. Through the simulations, learners are provided with experiences to more closely represent the actual clinical environment, eg: authentic images of patient heart with actual heart and lung sounds.
Chippewa Valley Technical College team presented a statewide ARISE training at MPTC West Bend Campus on August 25, preparing instructors to use ARISE in classrooms this school year.
