The most accurate illustration of the consequences of what is nowadays known as “confirmation bias” comes from the French physiologist, Claude Bernard, in his book, An Introduction to the Study of Experimental Medicine, first published in 1865. Bernard says (translated from French):Men who have excessive faith in their theories or ideas are not only ill …

This html5 DLO simulates a spring’s stretching when several identical weights are attached to it. This DLO is meant to be used as a guided inquiry tool which allows learners to infer Hook’s law.
This video is an End of Course project , in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the “Production of Educational Video” course. The video targets students of grade 9 and is supposed to be used as a DLO facilitating the study of the heart anatomy.
I’d love to read your thoughts on how you might devise Mind-controlled prosthetics based on what you have learned in grade 10 about the nature and coding of the nervous message. Please comment below and I’ll publish your aggregated comments in a later post.
I have just finished this beautiful vector illustration of the cardiac cycle.
This simulator is made for experiential learning of the concept of receptor potenital and serves as a technological tool that will hopefully increase students’ engagement.
This screencast is about the amplitude of the global potential and how it’s affected by the intensity of stimulations applied to the nerve. This is a topic that’s thoroughly discussed in grades 10 and 12 of the Biology Lebanese curriculum and I have already posted about my simulator, the one I use in my classroom …

This is hopefully the first in a series of screencasts targeting biology learners in high school/secondary school. Your feedback is very much appreciated especially at this early stage. Enjoy.
This resource is an HTML5 simulation of the nerve’s response to electrical stimulations i.e. the global potential when there are slow and rapid conducting fibers in the nerve. This simulation is particularly useful for educators seeking an interactive way to explain the first chapter of Neurophysiology and I’ve had great success in using it with …

This simulator mimics the response of a nerve to electrical stimulations of different intensities, it is practically useful for grade 12 students of the LS section. It requires the flash player plugin so make sure you enable it in your browser. Feel free to contact me if you’d like a customized version or a different …
