5 Great iPad Apps to Explore Human Body in 3D ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

5 Great iPad Apps to Explore Human Body in 3D ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Virtual Classrooms | Scoop.it

"Science is one of the areas where the impact of technology has been markedly observed. It triggered an unprecedented revolution and reshaped people's knowledge about the world. It has also enhanced the way science is being instructed inside schools and colleges. Experimentations are being facilitated by the use of technology and students are able to learn and get engaged in simulated experiments that mimic the real life problems.

 This revolution is being carried on to the mobile platforms. There are now several science apps that students and teachers can use to perform a wide variety of science tasks. Below, for instance, is a set of apps that enable students to explore the human body in 3D. Check them out  and share with us if you have any additions. Enjoy"

A Detailed History Of Social Media - Infographic

A Detailed History Of Social Media - Infographic | Virtual Classrooms | Scoop.it

Do you know the history of social media? Think we'll remember Facebook in 20 years? This detailed timeline is a must-see.

 

Social media began decades before the Facebook era. It started, more or less, with CompuServe and Arpanet back in 1969. A couple years later, the first-ever email was sent.

It has evolved over the past few decades into a powerful tool, as seen in this social media history timeline. With so much that’s happened over the past few decades, we can only guess what’s coming next for social media.

"Kathleen Cushman, author of Fires in the Mind (and Edcamper!), has done countless studies on motivation and engagement. In many ways, her findings echo Daniel Pink's work in his text, Drive.
