The Interactive Ear is a neat website through which students can learn about how the human ear works. The site has three sections; the outer ear, middle ear, and inner ear. In each section students can click on little pinmarks on the drawings to learn about the parts of the ear and their functions. Students can also click the “journey” button to see how sound travels through the ear.
Applications for Education
On its own The Interactive Ear is a good resource for students of anatomy and physiology. Combine use of the site with the free iPad app Sound Uncovered to help students understand how sound travels and how we hear it.
