Close-up education thanks to distance learning

three students examine a preserved human heart

What do you get when you combine interactive learning technology, students from several schools, a medical college lab and actual human organs? For Schoharie High School students Katie Touchette, Lily Caza and Abigail Wetsel, the answer is an unmatched opportunity to learn about the human heart.

Schoharie's students, who are enrolled in an Anatomy and Physiology class offered through distance learning, visited Albany Medical College Dec. 5 to attend a lecture on the heart and various heart dissection methods.

They then participated in a hands-on lab where they studied the features of a preserved human heart.

Touchette, Caza and Wetsel were then given a tour of the college's simulation lab, a clinical learning space with a range of training tools including state-of-the-art Laerdal SimMan mannequins.

Distance learning technology allows students from numerous schools to take part in classes held in a singular location by providing live audiovisual links, real-time interaction and shared instruction.

Schoharie students benefit both from classes hosted by their school and those hosted elsewhere.
