Today’s Learning Leader post is looking at Cleveland, TN’s Cleveland High School. Last fall, Cleveland High School had Cyber Anatomy software installed on a touch table for their Anatomy and Biomedical Engineering classes.
Monday, Cyber Science traveled a short distance from Coralville, Iowa to the Kirkwood Iowa City Campus to install Cyber Anatomy 3D onto a MimioBoard and laptops for Kirkwood’s Anatomy & Physiology Lecture and Lab courses.
Acquiring human bodies for medical research has always been a difficult task. In the past, medical researchers had to resort to digging up bodies from the grave. Today, such drastic measures are not necessary, however, for many reasons cadavers are not the most practical tool for studying anatomy anymore.
Since 2008, Darren Hoffmann, a Ph. D., Lecturer and Vice Chair of Educational Programs with the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at the University of Iowa, has been using Cyber Anatomy 3D to teach human anatomy to his classroom.
3D technology has become commonplace in today’s society with the advancement of 3D movies, 3D gaming and technologies like Oculus, Microsoft HoloLens, zSpace and Magic Leap, but where did 3D imaging originate?
On March 30, Cyber Science 3D attended the 2015 Iowa STEM Summit. The conference was an opportunity to learn about regional networks, communication strategies, STEM classrooms and much more related to K-12 students and learning.
