Interesting post from AAMC's Group on Information Resources

Ran across this today:

Web 2.0 and Medical Education: It's Here. Are You Ready?

Interesting perspective of the application of 2.0 tools to medical education, from the viewpoint of a medical educator. There's some good references at the end of the article, and i found this particular statement rather provocative: "A minority of students is hesitant. They question the value of information provided by their peers and are only concerned with the content from their professors' since it reflects what will be on their summative tests."

What are your schools doing in this respect? Here at LSUHSC-NO I don't see too much incorporation of blogs and wikis just yet. But I do see alot of Facebook pages open during medical lectures.
