Using Internet and Social Media Designs to Contextualise Science Inquiry Learning
Affeldt, Fiona; Eilks, Ingo
School Science Review, v99 n369 p90-95 Jun 2018
Social media are a highly visible factor in the daily lives of our students. Why should teachers not take advantage of this and develop teaching and learning materials that use the designs found in such media to contextualise science learning? This article suggests some ideas for creating lab instructions using social media design as an innovative and unconventional approach to inquiry learning. Our experience shows that illustrating lab instructions with the help of designs found on popular online platforms or encountered in frequently used apps is well received by students.
