Like human anatomy? There's a really awesome iPad app for that

We’d be buried in posts if we wrote about every single cool app out there, but I just saw this and wanted to highlight it. The Human Atlas HD app (newly for iPad) looks like a truly fantastic way of exploring anatomy — like the Periodic Table app, it makes the science tangible and immediate. That’s one of the benefits of a full-size touch interface, and one of the major reasons I support things like iPads and laptops in classrooms. I’ve got a bigger post brewing on that, but I think we can all agree that a lot of kids would have a lot of fun and learn a lot of stuff by playing with apps like this. Sure, it’s $30, but a good anatomy textbook will set you back more than that. You can probably get volume pricing for classrooms and such anyway.
