A fortnight of visual learning

The last couple of weeks have been a bit manic. Lots of teaching highs that have been obscures by lots of administrative (and personal) lows. My year 12 students continue to push their thinking about Orwell’s significance, my year 7s have loved every minute of Winton’s ‘Lockie Leonard’ and my year 10 students have shown a growing appreciation for poetry. On the flip side I’ve been dealing with the death of a colleague, the grinding reality of traditional assessment and reporting as well as completing far too many forms about photocopying and printing. It’s just been a weird ride and as a result, I haven’t felt compelled to write anything meaningful. I have, however, been collecting visuals from Twitter and Facebook – these images, I think, track my thinking and learning over the last ten days or so. I only just realised that I’ve been an unconscious bowerbird; stealing the gems of wisdom others have captured through well-selected images and groovy fonts. Can I just say this, THANK YOU. They helped. They inspired me, challenged me, made me laugh. I, sadly, haven’t been considerate enough to record who each image belongs to. Do me a favour? Claim ownership by commenting below?

  3. Hi Bianca, Your post has many inspirational and thought provoking ideas, questions and ponderings that we need as teachers. Sometimes its a case of “less is more” where only a few words are needed to get the idea across, especially when we are already overloaded with lots of opinions and comments. Just a few words are all it takes to help refresh a weary mind and heart. Thank you for sharing your findings, as I always appreciate what you have to say. Kind Regards Kate Todd

  4. Oh! I was enjoying the images and then I scrolled onto one that was very familiar: the STEAMmaker one is mine for the camp we run. Yay! How cool that you picked that!

    Also, the one about the right/wrong ways to use tech is from Bill Ferriter, @plugusin.

    Glad to hear you’ve had some ups and yet so sorry to hear about your colleage. Take care, friend.
