Virtual Frog Dissection on Your iPad

Virtual Frog Dissection on Your iPad | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

"Frog Dissection for iPad is an app that is popular with biology teachers. The latest version of the app includes more labels, quizzes, and videos. Of course, the main purpose of the app still remains. That purpose is to provide a virtual environment in which students can dissect a frog just as they would if they had a frog and a scalpel in your classroom. The app provides step-by-step directions for students to follow as they virtually dissect their frogs."


Via John Evans
Lee Hall's insight:

This would be good practice even if you are going to let them dissect an actual frog.

How To Use Brain Science To Be Your Best Self In 2017

How To Use Brain Science To Be Your Best Self In 2017 | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

Resolutions are often an exercise in wishful thinking. People rarely keep them, mostly because they’re vague about their goals and don’t have a plan for following through. But that isn't the only thing that may weaken resolve or slow progress toward a goal. Failing to understand some practical brain science can just as quickly do you in.

 

Neuroscience has shown us this year that we may actually have everything we need to stay focused, be more creative, remember more, and make better decisions—just as long as we can work a bit more with our brains, not against them. Here are a few things we learned that can take you closer toward being your best self in 2017.
