I looked at some apps that might be helpful for athletic training education. I already have downloaded the SCAT2 app for concussion assessment. This app is a great teaching experience because it guides students through a full concussion evaluation. I have found this to be useful for students to understand the different parts of the exam, how to create an orderly assessment of the exam, and see how the results change when questions are answered differently. I have not used this app to actually perform a concussion assessment on an actual athlete, but I think it is a great tool to use to educate students on how to perform this assessment.
Some other apps that I am not familiar with but look like they would benefit an athletic training education program are musculoskeletal system anatomy and skeletal anatomy quiz, Athletic Tapings, and the Palpation Mapp. These three apps are ideal for the athletic training student because the apps allow students to review information, test their knowledge, and cement skills learned in class. The best part is that the two quiz apps and the taping app are free! The palpation app was a little pricey at $9.99 but I think it would be a great addition to teaching. To lower the cost of students buying the app, the instructor could use the app in class by projecting it up on the wall for all to see, or have a couple of devices around the room for students to utilize while learning.
