HACC President Ski Visits BIOL 121 Blended with iOS - 11/27/17

We were excited to have Dr. Ski visit our biology lab to experience first-hand how my students are using iPhones and iPads in active learning exercises to learn human anatomy. The students were working on various blood circulation projects during his hour-long visit and he helped several groups create Claymation blood flow videos using the iMotion app! It was a visit to remember and my students were quite impressed that our College President took the time out of his busy schedule to visit the class and chat with them about their experiences in this unique learning environment.
