Froguts Frog Dissection
This is an app that can be downloaded for $3.99 CA and allows students to "dissect" a frog. This is a great alternative to the traditional dissection assignment for a number of reasons. Students who may be "grossed out" should be able to handle this clean, scent free alternative. This app is also good because it would allow students who may have made a mistake to go back and try again without having to use a new frog.
This is an online database that holds video recordings of lectures at TED conferences. Students can access the different lectures from the app for free.
