KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS

  • The more students use both linguistic and nonlinguistic systems of representing knowledge, the better they are able to think about and recall what they have learned (Marzano, Pickering, & Pollock, 2001).


  • Visual representations help students recognize how related topics connect (NCTM, 2000).


  • Finding patterns helps students organize their ideas so they can later recall and apply what they have learned.(Bransford et al., 1999; Lehrer & Chazen, 1998).


  • After brainstorming to generate ideas, students can improve their reading, writing, and thinking skills by using thinking maps to help them organize key concepts in a visual way (Hyerle, 1996).


  • Using visual representation software in a science classroom helps students express their developing understanding of core chemistry concepts in the form of visual representations that are readily created and shared. (Michalchik, V., Rosenquist, A., Kozma, R., Kreikemeier, P., Schank, P., & Coppola, B., in press).

FLIPGRID

This free video response tool, recently acquired by Microsoft, allows students to respond to questions through video. Students who may not be comfortable participating in whole-group activities may be more inclined to participate via pre-recorded video. Students can also leave video comments for classmates and engage in deeper discussions.
