Eirini Vogiatzaki, Anastasia Nikolopoulou

Abstract


This article aims to present a lesson plan entitled: "An instructional scenario: The Importance of Arterial pulse". This teaching plan lasts for one teaching hour. It was carried out with modern educational form through the Cisco WebEx Meetings platform and concerns the course Nursing Theory II for the 3rd Class of Vocational High School (EPAL), specializing in Nursing of the Health, Welfare & Wellness Sector. This lesson plan was implemented in the context of the training of B2 level ICT trainees, organized by the Institute of Educational Policy (IEP) with the co-financing support of Greece and the European Union. The article aims to present a teaching plan so that students can deepen their knowledge in the topic of Vital Signs with emphasis on the importance of arterial pulse. More specifically, students learn to define what an arterial pulse is, to list the points where the arterial pulse is taken, and to state each time the arterial pulse should be taken. The strategy on which it was based is collaborative learning. In particular, through the working groups, the participation and the interaction with the students are reinforced. Students were asked to complete interactive exercises created in the e-me content, then work on a collaborative document (google forms), and at the end of the course fill in a worksheet for feedback.
