Digital images are an essential part of scientific research. In field biology, researchers can capture images of animals and behaviors that provide months of data for future research. With the wealth of technology tools available to teachers today, our students can use these same technology tools. Almost any lab you do can benefit from students taking pictures of their work. Often, I will ask them about a lab event the day after and they struggle to remember. If students take pictures of their lab work, it’s easy to show them pictures of their own work to start the discussion. I also have students use these as part of their lab reports which leads to a deeper understanding of the concepts. If you are interested in this topic for your students, click the image below.
