Recently, my class did a science experiment, where we explored how rain falls. In short, you put shaving foam (the cloud) on top of a cup of water and drop food colouring onto it. When the cloud gets full, it begins to ‘rain’ the food colouring.
Have a look at a video we took:
How did the class document the experiment?
We used a brilliant app called Google Keep. Its primary purpose is to make notes and reminders but it has a lot of uses.
Watch my video tutorial on how to use Google Keep:
My class combined notes, pictures and doodles to write-up the experiment.
The app was really effective. Here is an example of what the students’ achieved:
Other ways I plan to use this technology is for drama freeze-framing and also for general note-taking.
