Researchers in Australia and England say doodling could help students learn about science, and suggest that freehand drawing be included in science lessons, just as writing, reading and talking are part of science education. Drawing can help students understand the subject and also make it more interesting, researchers say. "We can have students exercising their creativity and imagination in order to learn the canonical knowledge of science," said researcher Russell Tytler. "There is no need for it to be 'transmitted' to students as dead knowledge."
