Reframing Mobile Technology Design through Education Principles
Today's aging population requires that health care professionals and trainees have immediate access to concise, evidence-based information. Mobile technology provides universal access but requires significant advance planning to ensure the mobile design will meet teacher and learner needs for point-of-care appropriate education resources. Educators' limited experience with mobile design documents (e.g., requirements management plan, detailed use cases) can be addressed by reframing it using core instructional design steps. This concept will be illustrated through the shift of a web-based resource site entitled Geriatric Fast Facts to a searchable, user-friendly mobile app.
OUTCOMES: Learn how to use mobile technology across the health care profession, from the trainee to the trainer * Gain a bird's-eye view of key strategies and design practice when developing a mobile app * Understand the advantages of specialty-specific, interdisciplinary collaboration and how to create teams within your institution * Learn what Geriatrics Fast Facts are and how they can be used across specialties to improve elderly quality of care
