I chose this image for a few reasons, the most significant in my mind would be the desire to work with these students. As an EdTech coach, and someone deeply interested in the environment, I think it would be great to be working with more kids outside.
In grade 3 we are looking at design using the CRAP design principles. Reid created this which I also shared with my class.

The big take aways for me this week are how important colour and design principles are when trying to engage learners. We’ve been talking about the importance of images, but we really need to create or use powerful images as teachers. Without powerful beautiful images (Heather suggested we keep a beautiful images catalogue in our google+, which I am going to start) we can’t really engage students the way we want, and there is no great example for students to shoot towards.
More than this, I’ve been chatting with my environmental education group about the importance of story telling. I think images, infographics and stories can play a powerful role in creating connections between people and their world, but in order to do that, we need to have powerful images.
