Over 80% of our brains are used interpreting visuals. It seems a waste not to take advantage this powerful channel into the minds of our students. What sorts of ways can a single image be used to tell stories and explore complex ideas in Math, Science, Language Arts or Languages classroom? What could we do with a series of pictures? How can we do this beyond the time and space of the classroom walls and have our students generate a bank of powerful visuals to inspire future students to create even more powerful learning imagery? What’s the best way to get stuff off the kids mobile devices and shared publically so our students learn while making a contribution to the global knowledge commons? We’ll touch on how all this feeds the essential 21st Century skills of Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, Critical Thinking and Global Citizenship.

Bring your camera enabled mobile device. We’re gonna use it. And show you how to take better pictures in the process.
