    Social workers and ipads

    Social workers and ipads 11th Jul 12 at 6:49 PM
    We had a theoretical argument at work today which has left me wondering something. If you had a social worker show up at your house and he/she used an ipad, what would you think?

    As in, you were doing a CAF assessment and they typed in into the form on the ipad rather than handwrite it or do it on a laptop.

    Ignoring issues of security of information, just about the perception of using an ipad instead of a laptop or paper documents.

    I don't know if any local authority with the money for social workers to get kitted out with these, this was just a 'modern technology' argument at work. Purely hypothetical.
