The powerful features of the iPad have finally given us the true independence of time and place in Education, but we need to rethink how we design for a learning environment where every student has a connected device in hand. Designing for mobile learning environments is more than just revamping your content to make it look good on a smaller screen. It’s designing learning activities that take advantage of the many benefits afforded to us by mobile devices. This session will present the results of a 1:1 device initiative where the iPad Air was used to enhance the Clinical Gross Anatomy college classroom through the use of apps, mobile media, cloud storage, and mobile learning designs. Initial results show that students are using the iPads to continue their learning outside of the formal classroom; and just as important, mobile learning designs are creating a learning environment where students are making and sharing their own learning materials. Gross anatomy dissection, by any measure, is one of the most transformational experiences of graduate health science education and should NOT be replaced. Rather, we believe that incorporating the iPad into the current curriculum engages student-team interaction, refines important anatomical connections and correlations, and provides unique contexts for the application of anatomy knowledge.
