The use of technology both inside and outside the classroom is integral to the facilitation of pharmacy students’ learning.1
Technology is allowing education to restructure classroom time for something other than simple transmission of factual information and to adopt an evidence-based approach to instructional innovation and reform.1
Pharmacy colleges and schools should incorporate technologies that students frequently use and that positively impact learning.2
