Our Missouri #moedchat topic for 8/29/13 9pm Central is Visual Storytelling. Glad I'm moderating it with +Ken Corum and +Barbara Warren Madden because 1) they're awesome and 2) moderating a topic makes me dig deeper as a learner.
The 3 guiding questions for #moedchat are ones I idea-bandited from +Ken Shelton and company. Thank you!
Q1: Why should I promote visual learning in my classroom?
Q2: What are some great examples of ways teachers have delivered visual learning lessons to their students?
Q3: How can I get started with visual learning to enrich my curriculum, engage my students, and teach more effectively?These 3 questions will take us on a JOURNEY from the the overarching why back to the what and then the HOW. How to get started increasing the use of VISUALS and storytelling in your classroom/school/district.
I'm no pro at visual storytelling. I learned a lot from prepping for this chat and I'll learn even more tonight with a large crew of talented and passionate educators on Twitter from 9-10pm!
Here are two initial forays into visual storytelling and metaphors.
- The Umbrella Metaphor (with pictures and student work)
- Storytime: My favorite Think-Outside-the-Box lesson (in pictures and videos)
