The Next Page Entry 33: Cameras in the classroom update

As long as Beth and her trusty sidekick Sanjay are handling the tech end of things, I’m sure our photographers will continue to thrive.

Recent eye-openers by the kids:

  1. I asked the kids to draw various geometrical shapes. Two kids [James and Jennifer] asked if they could go out and take photos of shapes they find on the playground. Not one to steal thunder, but wanting all the kids to try it, I had those two announce their idea to the class. Within minutes, Room 36 had scattered across turf and blacktop in search of ‘real-world geometry’. And, of course, Mrs. Nix witnessed it the kids laying siege. I’m just learning to shrug and live with possible future grilling.
  2. Sanjay created a screensaver slide show of those photos that the kids see when my projector-connected laptop shifts into limbo. [my non-techie term for locked/inactive mode]. ‘Locked/inactive’…at times applicable to me about 2:30 most afternoons. Problem: School dismisses at 3:00. ;->
  3. Creating ‘Postcards from Room 36′ entries for the school newsletter. Rather than—to quote Beth Carson—’a boring old paragraph’, we’ve submitted a travel log-themed layout of four captioned photos.
