Doodling and Science

A recent study indicated that students who drew or doodled while learning had improved memory recall over students who did not. The researchers reported that students applied more effort when they drew pictures to indicate they understood text that they previously read. This appears to be especially helpful during science class to motivate and engage students.

Nice study to refer to if generating educational based goals for why a student needs to learn how to draw or doodle.
