I’ve been thinking a lot about learning spaces recently. With Trinity’s World Languages Program, I have the opportunity to tour a number of people around our school and every time I walk through the halls, I see things that inspire, challenge, and excite me. I needed a break from today’s routine and found a few extra minutes on my Outlook Calendar. I decided to wander, with my camera, and thanks to Brian Barry (@Nunavut_Teacher), Katie Hellerman (@theteachinggame), and Cale Birk (@birklearns), I decided to post my ten picture tour. Here is my #10PIXTR from Wednesday, April 6th.
Five Easy Steps: How to make a “Ten Picture Tour”
- Use a cellphone camera, then you won’t have to pack/find another electronic gizmo.
- Take 10 minutes. That’s it. Then you won’t find a reason not to do it. And it won’t be too “staged.”
- Take pictures around your school that you think showcase some pretty cool things. They don’t just have to be of kids learning, we believe you when you say they are…
- Put them into a blog post with basic captions so we know what we are looking at.
- Put it as a link on your blog page, so that when we come and visit, we know that when we see a link called “10 Picture Tour” we will learn a little bit about what your learning environment looks like.
