Essential Anatomy 2 adds more systems, iPhone support, just in time for back to school

Essential Anatomy 2 adds more systems, iPhone support, just in time for back to school | Wellness fitness | Scoop.it

"Just in time for the upcoming school season (and Apple's education promo) 3D4Medical has released Essential Anatomy 2 for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. The most noticeable improvement, of course, is the iPhone support (EA1 was iPad-only). The first Essential Anatomy app (you can read my review of it here http://www.tuaw.com/2013/02/13/essential-anatomy-is-the-future-of-touch-based-anatomy-learning/ ) has become a staple of anatomy learning in the classroom. With the latest update to the app, it has become even more comprehensive. Now in addition to exploring the bones, muscles, connective tissue, nerves, arteries and veins in the body, the app has added the digestive and urinary systems."

The Touch-Screen Generation

The Touch-Screen Generation | Wellness fitness | Scoop.it

To date, no body of research has definitively proved that the iPad will make your preschooler smarter or teach her to speak Chinese, or alternatively that it will rust her neural circuitry—the device has been out for only three years, not much more than the time it takes some academics to find funding and gather research subjects. So what’s a parent to do?

DiAnne Galm's insight:

I am amazed when I watch my 3 and 2 year old great nephews using an iPad or iPhone. They are already more tech savvy than some adults I know.

A good, if rather long read about the concerns of parents in relation to touch screen technology.

Laura Burton's curator insight, March 22, 2013 1:54 AM

This article discusses technology for children and the way they play their games on things like iPad's tablets and more. Research has shown that since children started playing mind rattling games on these resources they have improved their ability to learn at a young age. This is why it is important that applications for children continue to advance. So if you read this article you will realize that this form of technology is important.

Phil Havlik's curator insight, March 22, 2013 11:01 AM

As a parent of three under age 5, always a fascinating topic. As a former teacher, fascinated for the potential. As a borderline millenial, and a member of the generation who grew up with the TV babysitter, fascinated to see where it all leads
