Edtech Resource of the Week – BioDigital Human

Those of you who know me are likely aware that I am a fan of the Google Chrome web browser.  So today’s resource comes from the Chrome Web Store, and you will need to download Google Chrome if you don’t have it yet – it’s free.

I stumbled upon the BioDigital Human web application in the Chrome Web Store this afternoon, and quickly added it to my list of great free resources available on the web. The app allows you to view and explore the human body in 3D.  Great for human anatomy and physiology classes, but could also be helpful to more basic science lessons as young as the elementary grades.  Some of the features include:

  • Pan, zoom, and rotate the body to view from different angles and at different sizes
  • The ability to add and remove body systems
  • Switch between Standard, X-ray, and Isolated view
  • Toggle labels on and off, and view additional information about the body parts
  • Remove/dissect parts of the body to reveal relationships
  • Change the cross section view so that you can see the body systems from different planes

A great resource for anyone teaching biology – check out the BioDigital Human web app, or find other great apps in the Education section of the Google Chrome Web Store.
