When looking at an iPad app to evaluate, I thought of all of the things that I would want if I was a student. The ease of navigation, the available content, the accuracy of the content, and if the information is age appropriate. In my search, I came across the app called Anatomy and Physiology 3D Free: Anatomical Model of the Human Body. This was a free app that I was able to download within a few minutes on my personal iPad. Total size of the app is 723 MB. The web rating is 12+. A brief summary of the app was provided by the creator. The description read that the app was a great reference, testing, and educational tool. It provided a full 3D male and female model with over 4,700 structures in each of the two models. It provides …show more content…
The curriculum content and authenticity of the information within the app is accurate. The app provides a touch screen navigational style approach. The student is able to choose a specific area of the body, such as the chest for example. The student can then decide what they would like to explore: muscles, organs, skin, bones, etc. of the chest. Then from there, the student can click on diagram pins for explanations of what the particular object is they are looking at. They are also able to screenshot, save, and email different images throughout the app. There is also the ability to draw and take notes on the screen. There is no sound to the app and there is feedback that can be posted by teachers and students.

The instructions were appropriate for my reading level and though it is geared toward the higher education learner, the medical terminology was not so complex as to take away from the comprehension component. It is very much a teaching …show more content…
Considering that the body systems are a collection of so many parts and so much information, it would be a downfall of the app to not include everything but can also be considered the downfall of the app. The instructor will have to help the students to micro-focus on one system and its parts and not to stray into other parts and systems. This is a great side tool for teaching students to stay tasked and focused. This would not be an appropriate app for lower than 9th grade. The app is moderately user friendly. There are several different avenues to reach the same location and information within the app, this also being a downfall of the app. There are different modalities available within the app, mostly being comprised of text components and some drawing and video components. All levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy are addressed within the app. This would have been an app that I would have enjoyed in my 10th grade biology class as well as the anatomy and physiology classes I took in my undergrad. This is still an app that I would use today
