Pienso que nosotros los docentes y nuestros alumnos nos hemos olvidado de lo importante que son nuestros sentidos y por ende cómo percibimos el mundo. Es importante pregunt***** ¿que es lo que más me gunta ver,oir, oler tocar y degustar? para poder conectarnos primero con nosotros mismos y luego con los demás.

Nice site. Informative, complete, concise. I will be using this one with some
ideas I have for my evening ESL class. I will post the lessons when I complete
them.I spent about 15 minutes browsing (it's a lot of info!) Should be easy to
use. I will create and post when I get the chance.
Used in course

This website is very clear and concise. I looked into the biology sub heading
because I am a biology major myself. We actually just covered all of the
sensory tracts and how our senses work. The information I found here was very
accurate and very well explained. The creator took a lot of time to make
something that is a rather complicated topic to be a very simple idea. I was
very impressed by the models along the side of the paragraphs to break of the
description. It also provides more understanding for the visual learners then.
I got a great review for my test on Monday from this site!

Technical Remarks:

I might try to find more models or pictures or something. It would help to
break up some of the parts that are lots of word descriptions.

I spent a good amount of time reading the different articles in Seeing, Hearing,
and Smelling the World. I thought that the content was extremely interesting,
and many ideas, thoughts, and examples that were listed I found very true. This
is what made me so interested in the topic. There can be many things learned
from these ideas about studies done on the mind, and on senses. On how the body
and mind work. This is a great topic for learning. The use of the materials is
alright, it might be difficult for some who do not use computers as often. I
found it easy enought to use.

I spent about a half hour looking over the site and found some very interesting
facts about color blindness that I didn't know about before. The information was
of high content and I would definately recomend this site to others. The site
was also very easy to navigate.

I explored various aspects of this site, beginning with each category and ending
with the hyperlinks provided within the text. I found this site to be very
educational and informative. I beleive that this site would certainly be
beneficial as a tutorial tool. This tool would assist the students in fully
understanding the concepts incorporated within the area of human sensations.

Technical Remarks:

Overall, this site was very user-friendly.

I was pleased with the content and learned a lot. It gave you examples that
almost anyone could understand and taught you things that you would have never
noticed. It proves how remarkable your senses really are.

Technical Remarks:

I thought that this website was very easy to use. First time users will be very
pleased to see how easily this site can be navigated. I was able to find
information and enjoy what I was reading.

I spent about an hour going through the entire site. I thought it was an
excellent site and it thoroughly explained the details of the senses, in plain
English. I think this would definitely enhance teaching and learning.

Technical Remarks:

The site was very well laid out and extremely simple to use, I would recommend

I really enjoyed the site, it was very informative without getting too
technical, a good site for the average person with a non-medical background. The
visuals were well done and attention getting. I spent almost an hour looking
around as there was definitely some substance here.

Technical Remarks:

The site was well planned and easy to navigate.

I spent about 45 minutes playing around with the visuals and reading the
information. I found it helpful as well as interesting to understand the brains
ability to percieve and understand different visuals, and the way it does. It
would be a good lab exercise I feel for the students to read this and do the
interactions. It presents concepts that are easily confused and makes them easy
to understand in an effective manor.

Technical Remarks:

I feel that this site could be used by just about anybody interested in this

I read all the material that interested me, and clicked on any links I thought I
might like to learn more about. The quality was very high. There was lots of
material to read and plenty of information to help one understand and answer any

I think this resource was very informational. it went into great detail on how
each of the five senses effect a person'd development. I spent abotu an hour and
fifteen minutes on this website browsing through the information.I think both
teachers and students could learn from this sight. I don't think alot of people
realize how much we ca be effected by our senses.

Technical Remarks:

i think this website was very easy to use for a first time user. I also think it
was very easy to navigate.

This site explains in detail how humans use their five senses. It took me about
an hour and a half to get through all of the information because there was a lot
of it. This site provided an extensive explanation of our five senses and how
they work. This site is broken down into five chapters. Each chapter deals with
a particular sense. In each chapter their is a lot of information pertaining to
it. This site will definetely help you to learn how our body interacts with the
surrouding atmosphere so that our brain uderstands what is going on. Each
chapter goes in depth about what protiens and cycles are used in order for us to
use all of our senses. The information was easy to use and find, but the
information itself was not on a beginners level.

I have seen better sites than this one.It basically tells about the five senses.Informative but not very user friendly.The information is there but you have to look for it.

Technical Remarks:

Technically this website was well put together.
