How I Use It
As a technology coach, this product would be one I would recommend to my 7th grade life science teachers as a way to allow kids to explore the human body. There would have to be some sort of teacher created activity to go with it such as a series of open ended questions. I think it could also be good as a research point for life science student created content such as the human body books we are putting together now.
My Take
I love that this product gives kids complete control over their exploration of the human body and the body systems. Students can take apart and reform a digital version of a human body piece by piece which allows real authentic learning. The reason I did not rate this higher is that there is no place for a student to create content or for a teacher to embed assessments. There has to be a companion piece from the teacher with this in order for it to be effective.
