Integration of iPads in the clinic and the classroom can lead to exciting new avenues for practice and learning. In the clinic, iPads are changing the way that we care for patients, document, access reference and research information, and network with colleagues. In the classroom, iPads are changing the way that learners access and store information and how they collaborate with teachers and fellow learners. This program will be based on current evidence for the use of tablet computing in the clinic and classroom and on our 18-month pilot project with 3rd year Doctor of Physical Therapy students. The first half of the presentation will address use of iPads to enhance clinical practice. The second half will address use of iPads to enhance classroom learning. We will illustrate iPad-enhanced patient care and classroom learning through a series of case examples. Audience members will have the opportunity to share their favorite apps through a live twitter feed #bestPTapps. The formal presentation will be followed by a hands-on exhibition and more opportunities for sharing innovative ideas and apps. If you have an iPad or iPhone, bring it! If you don’t, come and see why you just might need one! (Full disclosure: we don’t own stock in Apple!)
