While learning through lectures and readings is beneficial, sometimes the best learning strategy is to tinker and experiment with interactions and simulations. With this virtual tool:
- Students learn how to read a physician's scale simply by experimenting with the slider and observing its impact.
- Educators foster student engagement and participation by presenting this tool during web lectures or in the classroom using a digital projector.
You can find this and other virtual tools in our flagship course—The Ultimate Head Start in Healthcare Career Training.
Note: Learning how to observe the rise and fall of the balance beam while the patient is on the scale is also covered in the Determining Weight Measurements module in the UHS-HCT course.
