Day 4 (Roller Coaster Physiology)

*Complete any unfinished work from Day 3 with your partner. 

Instructions (Part I): Charge your Oculus  headset. Carefully watch the below video as a class or with your partner. When done, share aspects of human anatomy (structure) and physiology (function) that were discussed in the video.

Instructions (Part II): It is time to you revisit YouTube VR! Use the search function (click here if your need assistance) to find and view each roller coaster video below. When done, switch headsets with your partner.  When you are not using the headset, please stay present with your partner to see if they need assistance during the rides. 

Instructions (Part III): With your partner, reflect on the video from “Part I” and hypothesize the physiology behind why you FELT like you were riding the roller coaster even though you actually were not. After your discussion, view the video below with your partner. 

Instructions (Part IV): Reflect on the Human Anatomy and Physiology learning experiences you had on YouTube VR, in 3D Organon, in Human Anatomy VR, as well as in the supplementary resources and videos. Keeping your reflections in mind, as well as the information learned above, work with your partner to brainstorm a novel idea for a VR application to help students learn Human Anatomy and Physiology in an engaging and fun way. Your application should teach both human structure and function and involve game-like qualities. Once you have discussed your idea, write a brief description (1-2 paragraphs) of what the game will entail below by clicking the “+” icon on the bottom right of the board below. Type both of your first names in the “Subject” area and include your application description in the “Write something…” area. If helpful, please upload a sketch of how your application will work. Prepare to share with the class.
