Reflection: Adaptive Technology Student Research in Action (Part 2) - Section 4: Extend


    During this lesson, I highly encouraged students to utilize their phones as data collection tools to accurately capture their data, especially those revolving around behavioral responses. This proved to be an effective way for students to a) relay information to their partners in their absence b) account for minute observations (eg. muscular contractions or egg count), c) revisit their observations for clarification and d) use the images as their data. Students were able to capture videos and unbelievably clear shots of their worm populations (see Data Collection photos attached) to utilize in their final products. With students being fluent in this technologies use and with the capabilities that it provides, I found this to be especially useful for a short term research project.
