Help your students make an informed decision!
Student voice and choice increases student engagement. (Read more about THAT here!) Each week while a research mission is live, students have the opportunity to help shape the way the mission unfolds using our voting tool. This is an opportunity for collective decision making as each class gets one vote. We'll provide supplemental materials to support your students in making those tough decisions.
The first vote is about camera traps! We need to know if your students want us to use camera traps, also known as trail cams, as we search for evidence of a resident tiger population. Many researchers use camera traps to observe animals with minimal impact to the animals or their environments. What do your students think? Should WE use camera traps? You can download the T chart pictured here to help structure your class discussion. Feel free to add your own pros and cons during discussion. Remember to vote on either the livestream or vote page. You can even share those T charts on the Publish It! page so others know how and why you reached your decision.
