Our daughter was born with a heart murmur. Today, we visited the pediatric cardiologist. I think we had the first doctor who frightened us a little bit about her condition. He still believes it will resolve itself, but he wants to watch a little more closely. So we had a chest x-ray, EKG, and electrocardiogram. What amazing technology.
In reading Disrupting Class, the authors talked about virtual science labs. In my mind, I always thought about chemistry experiments. As I was sitting watch the screen of my daughter’s heart. I thought about biology and anatomy & physiology. This is so much better than a picture. The program could show different so many different parts inside us and give comparison and contrast of healthy and unhealthy conditions. I am curious if anyone has comments about this idea. It was my aha moment in a stressful day.
