Science Apps

Entries into each section on this wiki will be structured so that this basic information is available. We will include the TITLE of the application, with a link to the broad description and rating on iTunes. The ICON is simply a screen shot of what will show up on the device. WHO describes the student you have used this particular app with. WHERE indicates whether the app was used at home, school, or in therapy. HOW describes the manner in which you used it. This is also the place to elaborate on other ideas for application. WHY/WHY NOT provides the contributer an opportunity to indicate the value of the app, whether they would use it again, and rationale for the opinion. We invite anyone else who has used the app to comment on anything about it... different whos, hows and whys....

The Human Body by Tinybop
This is my new favorite app!

"The Human Body" is an app used to explore the systems of the body. It includes:
  • The Nervous System
  • The Skeletal System
  • The Respiratory System
  • The Circulatory System
  • The Digestive System
  • The Muscular System

When you first open the app, you can choose a boy or girl outline. You can also create a parent account with a passcode that allows you to see how your child has been using the app. You can also turn labels on and off.

I love this app because it is so interactive. For example, when using the digestive system, you can feed the person food and watch it travel down the esophagus. You can zoom in and follow the food through different parts of the digestive system as it gets moved and digested. There are awesome sound effects to accompany the various processes too. There are so many things you can do with this app that my students and I haven't explored all of them yet!

Who: high-school aged students (but would be appropriate for any age)

Where: in therapy, to review science vocabulary, concepts, and processes

Additional ideas/comments from others:
I was lucky enough to download this app when it was free in the app store. However, it is so beautifully designed and easy to use that I think it is well worth the money!

This is just a chart place-holder, mainly for navigation purposes. Delete this text and use this section to write about your app. Be sure to include the who, where, and how information described above.
