Life moves to quickly and so some times you need to stand still……….and just look around………Our super speed, super highway lives are devouring the vital seconds, minutes, hours and days. The time spent gazing at one screen or another for the latest tweet or post soon breaks the back of your waking hours.
So if we stop, look around and take a few seconds just to focus on our World it may bring moments in time back into focus rather being obscured by a screen. I am not a luddite, for from it but I do think moments in life need to be recorded and used at a productive moment. Recalling or reflecting is a crucial part of teaching practice and as much a part of learning for our pupils.
So why not encourage your students to record images of life, store them and reflect on them. For my part I will be teaching pupils how to use a camera productively, how to edit images and how to safely share them. Setting up a flickr account has been my starting point, uploading life images for other to view and reflect on.
Please comment and use my images but not for profit or resale.
