Scientific Modeling with Collaborative Drawing Tools and Screencast Video - Ryan Cain "As the Utah Science and Engineering Education (SEEd) standards require students to engage in the practice of scientific modeling, collaborative drawing tools provide easy-to-use platforms to support making scientific reasoning visible. Gone are the days of asking students to copy a poster of the water cycle. Now, science teaching should provide opportunities for children to make sense of relatable scientific phenomena. Instead of teaching a generalized model of the water cycle, students in Ogden might draw a model that includes Pineview Reservoir and Mount Ogden. Collaborative drawing tools like Google Jamboard and Google Drawing provide a common workspace for drawing models that promote discussion and revision.
