Pour ce faire, il a jugé utile de nourrir la réflexion commune par des éléments de synthèse et d'analyse sur la situation en France et dans plusieurs pays étrangers (États-Unis, Canada, Allemagne, Espagne, Royaume-Uni, Suède et Pays-Bas), et a confié à l'IDATE la réalisation d'une étude sur le sujet.

Will iPad transform Stanford's med school? The new class of medical students is being weaned away from pencil and paper to digital learning Norbert von der Groeben First-year medical students Jonathan Dunlap, Lizzy George and Stacie Vilendrer learn how to use their new iPads for lectures and studying, as part of a training for the new class that the School of Medicine provided on Aug. 20.

He was hanging out in the student lounge along with several other Stanford medical students a few weeks after the start of the new school year. “You can’t even see that,” said Sloan, a University of Miami graduate, who squinted at the image on his computer screen. Sloan is one of the 91 medical and master’s of medicine students who began class Aug. 23 with school-provided iPads for the first time. Jamie Tsui/Stanford EdTech “It will be an interesting experiment,” he said.
