The scientific method is predicated upon question formulation, hypothesis development, prediction, testing and analysis. Perhaps the most integral aspect of this process is the external review and sharing of findings. Paper, PDFs, and static spreadsheets cannot fully capture the magic and dynamism inherent to scientific findings.
The emergence of the world wide web towards the close of the century effected a paradigm shift in the way that information could be stored and shared instantly and efficiently across the globe. The en-masse adoption of mobile devices including tablets such as the iPad signals the ascension of another, more dynamic content delivery method – the App.
The following serves as a framework for scientists, researchers and academics alike to leverage the iPad as a vehicle to share their findings with the world:
Presenting your findings at conferences, summits, and academic conventions can be made easy and painless with the iPad. Load your reports, interactive graphs, data tables, photographs and other relevant findings onto an iPad Presentation App. Centralizing all of the information that pertains to your speaking engagement will facilitate a more interesting, seamless and ultimately informative presentation of your findings. You can even connect your iPad to an overhead projector and showcase your findings to your colleagues, on demand and in real time. Your facts, figures, reports, tables, and graphs are available to you instantly, and digitally.
2) Leverage the iPad’s ability to effortlessly display dynamic content
Transform dowdy presentations into interactive, non-linear iPad applications that more effectively engage your audience. Messages are more effectively retained through experiential, interactive learning. Dynamic tables, charts, graphs, videos, photographs and more can add further depth to your findings and facilitate greater understanding amongst your audience.
The iPad was designed with bidirectionality in mind. As aforementioned, a fundamental pillar of the scientific method is transparency and information-sharing. An iPad Presentation App designed specifically for scientific research could facilitate the instant, effortless, and full sharing of scientific information amongst the scientific community resulting in the fine-tuning of scientific theories or new discoveries altogether.
