Australian schools geography curriculum uses the IAN online diagram creator
Conceptual diagrams are science communication tools that aim to communicate complex ideas about systems and processes in a simple, visual way. This education resource prepared by the Queensland Department of Environment and Resource Management, through their "Water: Learn it for Life" program, provides teachers with detailed lesson plans to take their students through the story of a river to identify the positive and negative features that most influence the health of the waterway. The lesson culminates in the students producing a conceptual diagram using the IAN Online Diagram Creator.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
