Abstract


Conventional educational wisdom would caution against technological innovation without having all pedagogical outcomes fully mapped out. Our experience introducing iPads into medical education at the undergraduate level demonstrates significant augmentation over the traditional learning medium and manifests a digital platform enabling previously-unforeseen learning benefits. This study uses Puentedura’s SAMR model of technological intervention to describe and categorise these benefits, as well as to illustrate the pleasing successes possible through an experimental and innovative approach.
