How I Use It
I used the virtual rat lab experiment to show the students the different layers of the rat and the step by step instructions for dissection. Also the students could see what the organs should look like by comparing to the diagram.
My Take
This teaching tool is great in that a dissection can be completed quicker as the prep work time is eliminated which allows the teacher to expand on the subject in greater detail. Also the students can learn visually and audibly as a different style of learning. The only problem is that the picture needs to be in 3D and have a help function for possible problems that could occur in a real live dissection.
