Science Journal App - a digital science notebook to inspire learners to explore the world around them | technologies | Scoop.it
Check out Science Journal-- a digital science notebook to inspire kids and adults explore the world around them using sensors and data!
John Dalziel's insight:
The "Science Journal" app, currently available for Android users only, allows users to gather data from the world around them. The on-board sensors of a users phone helps them collect, analyse and conduct experiments on the world around them; turning a phone into 'a pocket science laboratory' to measure... 
► light, 
► motion, 
► sound 
 ...and more. 
Science Journal empowers users with a set of built-in features that turns it into a lab notebook. 
Users can use these features to... 
► record their data, 
► visualise their data into charts and diagrams, 
► take notes including voice notes, 
► organise their data into projects, 
► collect data in multiple trials, 
► annotate and explore their results
...and much more. 
Science Journal has also partnered with Exploratorium to provide users with third party tools and materials to utilise in different science experiments. 
There is also an activity section ( ideal for STEM Practitioners) featuring a variety of activities for learners (ages 10 and up) to help them tap into the educational potential of Science Journal. Each activity comes with a set of instructions and guidelines to print out and use with learners.

John Dalziel's insight:

GeoStories are short, map-based stories featured on National Geographic Education.

The stories combine text, maps, and pictures to tell a story as a series of slides connected to placemarks on maps. National Geographic Education currently offers twenty GeoStories.

The current GeoStories cover subjects in the areas of...

The Geostories offer a good model of using maps to enhance the telling of a story.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, December 21, 2013 8:06 PM

GeoStories are published by National Geographic and contain a narrative, a map and media. It  would be a great idea for students to make their own GeoStory about a significant historical character, ancient civilisation or a journey of discovery!
