PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

My school is working on incorporating technology into all of our classrooms, and this is the brain dissection assignment that I created in response to this.

To use it, I guide students through a sheep brain dissection, step-by step, showing them the structures. After each stage, the students then complete the same steps that I have done, demonstrating their learning to me when they are ready. They call me over, and I initial that they have shown me the structures.

This is when things get technical: The students then take a digital photo of the structures in front of them and digitally label all of the structures. They import the digital photo back into the document, and then research the function of each of the structures, creating a very complete set of notes on the brain structures and functions.

(in case you're wondering about the digital logistics, I have had students take the digital photos with their phones, then use an app like "oh my pic" to label the photos. Other groups have used the camera on the computer to take the photo, and then have used "notebook" or even "paint" or "photoshop" to label the pics) There are a great many options out there for them to do this assignment. Other groups have elected to take the photos with the computer camera and simply print them out and write on top of the photo with a felt-pen. I think it's more about the product than the process...)

Once the worksheet is complete, students hand them to me (digitally, but on paper works too!) and they now have a GREAT set of study notes that includes both anatomy and physiology of the human brain.
