Now that it is time to be handing in these IPads, I have finally figured out a few things that I can do with them. I have utilized the anatomy apps during my IStan simulations to allow the students to review anatomy while we are doing a scenario about that particular system. The first time, they thought it was OK. The second time, many of the students thought it was way cool and was really excited, guess it took a few times for it to catch on!
I also started utilizing it as an electronic medical record tool for my students to chart their assessment of the patient during the simulation to practice charting. Just started that this week, I am a late bloomer.
For Dave's class, I think it would be cool to have an app to instruct students how to read a blood gas sample and the different disorders. A fluid and electrolyte app would be really cool too, examples of imbalances and the signs/ symptoms.
That is all for now, and yes, getting used to the blog thing alitte more now too, Just takes me awhile! Dec 7 is not that far away, did I really sign something??
