Anatomy 4D Changes the Way We Learn About the Human Body Anatomy 4D, a free mobile app from DAQRI, gives students and educators the ability to explore every detail of the human body and all its systems in stunning detail. The app, which has been incredibly popular with the education community, allows users to isolate bodily systems: muscular, skeletal, circulatory and more, to see every detail and how each one works together. All you need to do is print the targets below and scan them with your phone’s camera. We’ve recently added a new target that gives a detailed, interactive look into the human heart - a learning experience previously only accessible in a gross anatomy lab. 4D embodies the way today's students can use technology to comprehend complex concepts in a much easier and more engaging way. Teacher Katie Ann Wilson saw this first hand in her classroom.
Bloomin' Apps This page gathers all of the Bloomin' Apps projects in one place.Each image has clickable hotspots and includes suggestions for iPad, Google, Android, and Web 2.0 applications to support each of the levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.I have created a page to allow you to share your favorite Web 2.0, iOS, or Android app with others. Cogs of the Cognitive Processes Option 1 I was recently reflecting on the triangular shape the Bloom's taxonomies utilize. Since the cognitive processes are meant to be used when necessary, and any learner goes up and down the categories as they create new knowledge, I was thinking another type of image might be more explanatory.Here is my draft of the idea of the "interlocking of the cognitive processes" or the "Cogs of Cognition".

3 Steps to Creating an Awesome Virtual Museum in Class You're spending an afternoon browsing the exhibits at an art museum. If you're anything like me, you'd probably appreciate the art a lot more if you could bring someone along that could explain the history and nuances of the pieces on display.

Excellent Videos OnThe Use of Augmented Reality Apps by Students Below are some good videos I got a few days ago on examples of how some augmented reality apps are being used with kids to help them improve their learning.

It might be a distorted, augmented, or less augmented version of the actual world but in its basic form, augmented reality is a simulation or rather a way of superimposing digital contents into the real context. You can learn more about the importance of augmented reality in education from " Teachers' Guide to Augmented Reality ". Now here are some video examples of augmented reality concept in action. These tutorials are all brought to you from apps by Paul Hamilton website.
Curating Links with Blendspace and Symbaloo Ever read an article or run across an app and think, “I’d love to use that when I teach (fill in the blank).” Then you bookmark it. Or pin it to Pinterest. And months later, you run across that bookmark/pin–usually a week after you’ve just finished the (fill in the blank) unit. I’ve found a solution–at least for me.
