Explore the Human Body in 3D with Biodigital Human

Biodigital Human

101 Days of Free Tech for Teachers, Day 96
Biodigital Human is a free digital resource for exploring the human body in your classroom. This 3D model allows students to explore the different systems of the body with over 5,000 fully selectable objects. There are even simulated anatomy and diseases and the ability to dissect and manipulate the anatomy. This hands-on learning gives an immersive education experience for students to better interact and understand the human body. Biodigital Human gives teachers the option to save their 3D visuals for later, embed in their class website, capture graphics for presentations, and quiz their students.

How We Decide Which Free Tech Tools to Feature
Yup, there are thousands of apps, tools, services, websites, and other offerings — many free — designed for teachers and students. So, how do we sort through all of those to feature the ones which are most useful and interesting? Well… we start by sorting through thousands of these things… then we talk to the presenters in the SimpleK12 Teacher Learning Community and watch their videos closely… then we talk to many of the members in the Teacher Learning Community, teachers just like you who are using these apps and tools day in and day out. We’ve been doing this for over 30 years and have, in that time, developed a sense for what’s good and bad. Have we missed something that we should feature here? Most certainly. So, let us know in the Comments section what we should take a look at and we’ll throw ’em into the hopper.
