The big Idea for this project is Using Aesthetic strategies in Designing Biology activities. The goal is to deepen students understanding of biology through awareness of their environment around them through thinking, visualization, creating models, and use of infographics to convey meaningful learning. The reason for selecting this idea is to develop students who can communicate learning aesthetically in several ways to express understanding of concepts. Also, students will use interdisciplinary skills to convey learning in biology.
The images ask the question "What is On Your Mind? I used this phrase because it allows students to think about the visuals. Students collaborate about the concepts and convey understanding in several ways...visuals, writing, verbally, images, videos etc.
The Brain depicts that students will engage in the thinking process throughout the school year. The flower depicts that students will express themselves in several beautiful ways. Finally, The image of the blood cell depicts that students will cover a lot of content on living cells throughout the school year.
I created images on Pixlr editor. The process was very simple and timely.
