Educational Innovation will play an increasingly important role in our society, which demands employees with skills like good communication capabilities or critical thinking. Namely, we are going to need people who formulate problems and questions accurately. People who are able to use abstract ideas, who think openmindedly and figure out solutions to new problems.

This is because automation is intended to lead most of current jobs to the Armageddon. All those jobs entailing an automated mechanism (those in which human decisions are not needed) will disappear by 2030. Such reasoning makes sense. A computer has a lower margin of error and is also cheaper to run than an employee.

A BoneModels anatomical model presents a great advantage since it is totally customizable. The student is forced to face different scenarios each time. Just like in real life. That is how Educational Innovation looks. Without discrediting other standardized anatomical models projects currently developed, we believe that customization should be taken into account. And here is why.

Educational Innovation through anatomical models

See through the eyes of a student, changing the scenario may trigger some stress at first. From then on, they need to recalculate the route instead of following an already known procedure. Critical thinking, creative thinking, openmidedness, etc., are all involved in a non-automated solution. Thus, we literally force them to think by themselves instead of following some action guidelines or operational standards.  We all know that any computer will be ready to execute those tasks in few years. This is one of the greatest richness of Educational Innovation.

In fact, if we look at the most innovative Learning Technologies, we can easily see that gamified tablets reach people (not only children) to develop 21th century intellectual tools such as the ones mentioned above. PescApps is one of the best examples. And in this same respect, YouTube is now becoming a competitor in terms of transfer of knowledge. Ultimately teaching standards are changing and we all need to make an effort to not fall behind.

At the same time, by using BoneModels anatomical models the teacher becomes a facilitator of a knowledge-sharing process. Therefore, they are not transmitters of content anymore. Seems like Google will always be the best transmitter of content. Even better than the best teacher, and every single student knows it. In this way, the teacher is disclosed as a knowledge guide and therefore as a partner.

Hence, the so-called Learning Generation desperate needs a paradigm shift. Non-state actors shall have the responsibility for developing that new paradigm around the idea of Educational Innovation. From BoneModels we bet on Educational Innovation. We will continue working on posing problems that no computer is able to solve.
