Hi again, Sally, I was in a hurry responding to you last time. I love the idea of taking photos of things and relating them to something… This kind of reminds me of a class activity i did last semester with in-service teachers, we did two such connections. “Education is like food/dieting” and “education is like flowers”. I blogged about them, don’t know if you’d seen that one.
I also like the one about finding articles and tweeting parts. I hadn’t initially thought to ask them to read (it’s this core curriculum creativity class, and i am teaching them educational games, so i don’t ask them to do much reading…) but now i think this might be a fun way to get them to find resources and share them. Hmmm… Will check out a good hashtag for that!
