Science notebooks can be amazing tools to help students define and document their thinking, engage in reflection and revision, and track growth in ideas and understanding. But how does this paper-and-pencil tool translate to remote learning and online instruction? Alternatively, even when it may not be a necessity, are there benefits to a paperless classroom and the utilization of digital science notebooks?
In this live workshop, we broke down
- the purpose of student notebooking (hint: it’s NOT to record YOUR NOTES!)
- simple ways to structure a notebook to support NGSS storylines
- seamlessly integrating notebooking into instruction
- assessment approaches, tips and tricks to consider, and resources to get you started
