KSDK, a news station from St. Louis, recently ran an interesting story on how the iPad is being used in innovative ways at the St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Tyler Robertson, a child life specialist at the hospital, says the iPad is being used for three purposes: Education, distraction, and preparation. An example is how the iPad is used to prepare children for the operating room by showing them pictures of staff they will encounter. The video contains a few other interesting examples of it’s use in practice.
