Yale University distributes ipads to students

Yale’s prestigious medical students will receive iPad 2 this fall, which will replace paper used to learn and collect patient data.

More and more universities are beginning to look at tablets and offer them to students, replacing paper. That’s what made Yale a prestigious college, which is planning to donate iPad 2 to medical students this fall.

Tablets will receive special software, which students will use during the first and second year of study. On the other hand, students of the third and fourth year will receive tablets containing information related to their specializations.

Yale claims that the solution is more eco-friendly and that, in his words, a photograph is presented showing how much paper savings will be replaced by a tablet. The picture shows a thin tablet, next to a giant heap showing the materials used by students only during the first two years. In addition to saving paper, students, thanks to an interactive learning style, will also be much better acquainted with knowledge.
