Slides to support a workshop on visual thinking across the curriculum at the MADLAT Conference. Winnipeg, Manitoba, May 2013.

Over 80% of our brains are used interpreting visuals. It seems a waste not to take advantage this powerful channel into the minds of our students. What sorts of ways can a single image be used to tell stories and explore complex ideas in Math, Science, Language Arts or Languages classrooms? What could we do with a series of pictures? How can we do this beyond the time and space of the classroom walls and have our students generate a bank of powerful visuals to inspire future students to create even more powerful learning imagery?
In this hands on session participants will mash up their ideas with powerful images, painlessly share them with the group and spend the lion’s share of our time together thinking deeply and discussing our shared vision for what real learning looks like in our classrooms. We’ll touch on ideas of ethical and responsible use of technology, creative commons and some thoughts about visual design.

Bring your camera enabled mobile device. We’re gonna use it. And show you how to take better pictures in the process.
