There are number of Kami tools that have applications across the sciences, in this article we will explore give a breakdown by subject of some relevant tools.
The following is a sampling of integration ideas for use in Science classes.
Inserting And Labelling Diagrams
Diagrams are a great way to visually convey complex mechanisms and concepts. If learning material doesn't contain a diagram you need for a lesson, you can use the Insert Image tool to pull in outside content into the document.
Have Students Look Up Terms And Record Their Notes In Context
Using the Dictionary Tool students can look up any technical terms they come across.
Students can then create their own notes based on these definitions:
Solving Multi-Line Problems With The Text Tools Formula function:
Using the Formula function under the Text Box tool, it is possible to write mathematical and algebraic notation in alongside standard text. This allows students to solve problems and show their working at each step.
Create Clips To Demonstrate Key Concepts and Methods:
With calculation-based subjects like Physics a video demonstrating how to solve an equation or visualizing a concept is often far more useful than text-based explanations alone.
Using the Screen Capture Comment tool it's possible to create a clip that records what's happening on your screen that your students can refer back to at a later time.
A good method is to first add a new blank page, which can be used as a kind of digital whiteboard space.
You can then record a Screen Capture comment, you're able to toggle the audio on or off depending on whether you need to talk through each step of your example problem and solution;
Equation Tool For Chemical Reactions:
Since the Equation tool supports superscript and subscript, students and teachers are able to express chemical forumulae and reactions.
Also the Formula function can be used for more complicated questions such as volumetric calculations that may involve solving a problem over multiple lines.
