Anatomy and Physiology can be one of the most challenging subjects for high school students. Both Career Technology Education health science students and biology students can get overwhelmed by the complexity of the human body and the amount of anatomy there is to learn. More students are studying therapeutic, diagnostic, and personal care services as well as advanced human biology. They all need a firm grounding in anatomy and physiology to complete their education and launch their careers. That's where Visible Body can help!
We work with educators and students to design apps that present information to students in ways that they find accessible, relevant, and engaging. Our apps are visual, interactive, and mobile! They are used in high schools across the country for:
Watch the videos below to hear straight from our development team and instructors. Today's high school students are part of the "Digital Natives" generation. They engage with information presented visually, in small bites, on-screen, and on the go. Interactive 3D worlds are more familiar to them than dense textbooks. Visible Body apps leverage students' comfort with the technology to help them gain a comprehensive understanding of complex anatomy and physiology.

This 2-minute presentation by Molli Crenshaw, instructor in the Biology Department at Texas Christian University, reviews how she uses 3D interactive homework assignments to prepare students for a heart valve lab.
When high school students are given access to this technology and content, they are not only being equipped with a powerful learning tool for their current coursework, but they are also building skills to use a technology that will continue to serve them in the future. Today's therapeutic services student is tomorrow's athletic trainer, nurse practitioner, or endodontist who can use these apps to better explain scenarios and treatments to their patients.
