The Digital Frog 2.5 engages students with an interactive, virtual dissection, allowing the student to learn each of the cuts necessary by "cutting" with a digital scalpel before watching the full screen video.
The program also makes learning anatomy an enjoyable experience,
by allowing students to have fun and learn through exploration and discovery.
Animations and interactions allow students to see how the frog's body works—from
blood pumping through the heart, to joints that can be built up and moved
by the user.
Much, much more than just dissection
The Digital Frog 2.5 is so much more effective than a wet lab because the interactive
dissection is seamlessly linked to a comprehensive anatomy and physiology
section, with human anatomy comparisons. A fascinating ecology section
reminds students that biology is the study of living organisms. With context-sensitive
definitions on every word and spoken pronunciations on significant words,
students have all the information they need with just a mouse.
Features & Benefits
Teacher and Student versions of the workbook materials are included on the disc in PDF, Word, RTF and Ascii formats, allowing you to print just what you need, when you need it, as well as customizing the materials if needed.
And, The Digital Frog 2.5 is now even better than ever
The latest version of our award-winning virtual frog dissection, anatomy
and ecology program. Like all Digital Frog International CD-ROMs, it uses
the full spectrum of multimedia technologies—full-screen video, animation,
sounds, narration, in-depth text and still images—to bring teaching
dissection and anatomy to life.
The new version builds on technology advances with higher resolution graphics,
interactive quizzes and built-in text-to-speech.
The Digital Frog eliminates the need for frog dissection to teach anatomy,
protecting a diminishing species. The Digital Frog focuses the student
on the study of structure and function, rather than on the process of dissection.
The Digital Frog also encourages squeamish students who may otherwise avoid
biology and science.
The Dissection module allows students to perform an entire frog dissection.
They can make cuts with a "digital scalpel" and then see the
actual cuts with full-screen videos. And unlike a real dissection, mistakes
are easily corrected.
Anatomy module, with its animation, movies, photographs and in-depth text,
seamlessly links from the dissection, providing a close-at-hand research
as students work through the dissection. Comparisons to human anatomy is
also only a click away.
The Ecology section rounds out the educational experience by giving students
insight into species diversity, frog calls, behavior and the life cycle.
