Visuals, technology and social responsibility: First steps and reflections from elementary school teacher researchers
April 19, 2007
This project explores three elementary school teachers' tentative first steps in using visual images in their teaching of social responsibility. Traditional drawing, computer-generated drawing and print/digital photography uses are explored. The research team consists of the three teachers and a teacher union researcher.
This report describes the approaches of three elementary teachers in a one west-side Vancouver elementary school. All three are using visual images to engage their students in learning, whether by the use of traditional drawing, computer-generated drawing, collage, or digital photography.
