Bridging Language Barriers to Unlock Global Access: Bricks Create Clone & Translate
New digital learning platforms are transforming higher education and providing high-quality education content at little to no cost. Educators can now reach large, even global audiences. Yet, while more than 7,000 languages are spoken worldwide, most medical education material is only available in a handful of languages. While medical schools go to great lengths to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion, resource equity is rarely mentioned.
The newest feature in Bricks Create, Clone & Translate is an AI-powered tool that translates cloned Bricks into four different languages:
- More to come!
While understanding English is advantageous to med students and clinicians–since most research, reference materials, and study tools are much more readily available in English–expanding access to non-English speaking countries means delivering the same type of high-quality material in their native tongue. Reducing this barrier will represent a giant leap forward in resource equity and a step toward achieving our goals.
Bricks Create for Students
Bricks Create is for more than just faculty.
As an educator, you know it's essential to provide tools to empower students to take ownership of their learning process. Bricks Create for Students allows them to create, share, and learn, making learning more engaging and exciting.
Engage Your Students
With Bricks Create for Students, the empowerment possibilities are endless. Here are just a few ways you can utilize it in your classroom:
- Assign projects and activities that require building a Case Connection within a Brick.
- Let your students get creative and create videos that enhance their Bricks.
- Encourage peer teaching by having students present on a chosen topic.
- Create a collaborative Brick on a topic you're working on in class.
Student Bricks Are Not Searchable
One important note: any Bricks that students create, clone, or publish will only be found on their Author page, not on the Rx Brick Exchange or their 'My School' page.
Ask us for a demo of the Bricks Create at Booth #47! We can't wait to show you.
