In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
Today’s focus: Communication through different styles: I appreciate my twitter and Facebook friend David Etkin’s (@davidaetkin ) Whatever Wednesday meme. It is fun to reflect on one thing each week that really catches my attention, entertains me, and is special enough I just have to share it with the world.
Here’s my Whatever Wednesday Randomness:
I always enjoy reading George Couros’s perspective on his blog. Recently he shared this video… he looked at it as an inspiration for future student learning and integration of technology. Personally, I watched the video and wondered why I haven’t begun to learn Cantonese yet after a year of living in Hong Kong… Something to strive towards: Communication: immerse yourself in a new language/culture and watch how you grow with the help of patient, welcoming people!
Dancing in the Stacks: I enjoy So You Think You Can Dance– husband and I were happy to see a library scene incorporated into a dance this past week, what are they communicating? That’s the big topic choreographers discuss when introducing each dance. Sometimes I tire of this since I’d like to just watch and interpret myself but still… love that dancing:
Mark Crilley– I enjoy his creativity, especially when he shares videos. I am a huge fan of his Akiko book series! Here’s an advertisement he recently created for a company… What is the ad trying to communicate? Surely will use this next year with my Year 3 students during our media literacy unit! (Here’s where I collect those materials: https://smore.com/ds2s )
Mark also created a video that you can follow on how he creates an illustration.
Bill Nye the Science Guy– such an inspiration: What is his main goal for communication? To change the world. I remember when I watched his beginnings when I was in college… What a change he has made for so many growing up and loving science!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
Thank you again to “Eat the Book” for the Whatever Wednesday meme: http://mretome.wordpress.com David Etkin’s words: “Whatever Wednesday — a chance to post something I’ve seen that I’m diggin’. Though often a cool quote or poster, it might simply be a picture.”
