The Body Browser
Posted on April 6, 2011 by mrrobbo

Discovering the wonders of the Human Body has always been one of my favourite topics to learn and teach. From exploring the bones of the body to understanding the process of energy production, the human body seems to capture students imagination.

With this in mind, imagine my excitement when I stumbled across ‘The Body Browser‘ by Google a few months ago. As the name suggests Body Browser allows the user to navigate through the human body with speed, precision and complete anatomical accuracy. Check out the video demonstration from Betchaboy.

Hi Mr. Robbo,
I am a student at the University of South Alabama majoring in Elementary Education. I watched your video on “The Body Browser” and I must say it’s a pretty cool program! I myself, am fascinated by the human body and all that it is capable of doing. I believe this is an excellent program everyone who is interested in how the human body works, and everything should have. I am going to download it myself and check it out. I think you did a fantastic job by posting it into your blog so that it would enable others to start using the program themselves. Once again, I enjoyed reading your blog and you can visit my blog anytime you wish, and leave a comment as well.

Make An ‘App’ for your class
Posted on April 20, 2011 by mrrobbo

It certainly isn’t everyday that you can say you have developed a mobile application. Well, with thanks to AppMakr I can safely say this today. AppMakr is an exceptional online tool that allows you to develop native iPhone/iPod/Android and Windows mobile applications without any programming experience.

Simply use the step by step guide to include media via RSS from a variety of sources making it a potential one stop shop for all of your web content. With this in mind, I set about to develop an application across all mobile platforms that could be used within my senior PE class to bring together all of the class content.

The basic idea behind the application is to make all of the class content available to my students at any time. As my students travel for in excess of half an hour each day to school this becomes a perfect platform for them to complete bite sized, personalised pieces of revision. The best thing is that as the content is sourced to the app via RSS, they to can have an input into the content creation.
