A Picture is Worth 1000 Words…

Can we use a photo to inspire learning and interdisciplinary studies? What if we start with photographs from our campus? Can we collaboratively design a lesson or series of lessons around something on our campus to implement together? How can we easily have learners contribute digital photos, ideas, and creativity? Can we will brainstorm and prototype together with photos to develop place-based learning lessons?

Lisa Nielson details how to share photos using Flickr in her post Using Flickr to Collect Images Captured on Cell Phones.  Using her advice, it is easy to set up a Flickr space for participants to share photos via email.

Bo and I use a Posterous space with our Synergy team to collect their observations and photographs.  We like Posterous because it offers our learners the opportunity to contribute images and video along with their questions about community issues.  Richard Byrne’s Try Posterous Spaces for Private Classroom Blogging will help you get started with Posterous if you are interested in collecting observations and questions along with images from your learners.

In our T³ International conference session today we started off with two photos from my campus. Details for these two photos can be found on Handicap Ramps: Connecting Ideas and Experiences to PBL – apply what you’ve learn and Connections: Questions, Photographs, Algebra Graphs, Perspectives, Environment.
