Pictures are worth a thousand words. I suspect that pictures taken of learning events boost student learning in the same way. My goal is to make images an essential tool of science exploration in school. In this lesson concept, students will learn how to complete an image mark up (taking an original image and labeling important concepts). The basic principle is that students create unique digital products that demonstrate their learning. In one class period with group access to a computer students create an image that highlights important scientific concepts. As students work to create their examples, you will unlock new learning opportunities. Once this skill is mastered, it can be used for anything, labeling insect parts on a specimen collected form the field, making constellation makes of the night sky, the possibilities are endless.
