What Schools Can Learn From the World of Photography | Connected Principals

What Schools Can Learn From the World of Photography | Connected Principals | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

"I have taken a big interest in visuals and photography as I have found some amazing photo sites on the web, as well as simply enjoying using apps such as Instagram (along with a large chunk of the world). Recently, I was struck by this quote:

 

'(On digital photography) No wasted film, slides, or prints. And we are aware of this relationship between mistakes and consequences when we pick up the camera—so we click away, taking many more photos digitally than we would have in a world of costly film. Because we know failure is free, we take chances, and in that effort we often get that one amazing picture that we wouldn’t have if we were paying for all the mistakes.' John Hamm

 

When I thought about it, I wondered about the photography industry and how it has probably changed a great deal in the last ten years because of the evolution of digital photography. As I am admittedly no more of an expert on the field of photography as I am a strong photographer, I still wanted to share some observations and thoughts on what we can learn from photography and how it applies to what we do in school. The field of photography has grown and schools could probably learn a few lessons from the field."

Live from Mars - see hundreds of images from Mars as they are received by mission scientists

Every week, THEMIS takes several hundred images of the surface of Mars, and you can see them here as they are received by mission scientists. As you watch, you'll see many kinds of geologic features scroll by. Some will look recognizable, others may be harder to figure out. To see all kinds of Martian features imaged by THEMIS, visit the THEMIS Images by Topic Gallery.

 

Because THEMIS images are very large and would load slowly, the images you see here have been reduced in resolution; full-resolution THEMIS images are available through the Mars Planetary Image Explorer and NASA's Planatary Data System.

The Educator’s Guide To Instagram And Other Photo Apps

"I’m not the most dedicated Instagrammer (need to get out more) or the best photographer (wish I was) but like many other educators, I enjoy sharing my photos on Instagram.

Why? It’s fun! Easy! I can quickly share photos taken on my iPhone when I’m out and about! Or have fun editing photos and sharing from my camera on my iPad! And in the process I’m learning more about photography, photo editing and other Instagram users.

Here’s my advice to help you get started or get more out of using Instagram."

Growing Up Lost in Appalachia

Growing Up Lost in Appalachia | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

"Ian Bates is photographing a group of Appalachian teenagers coping with a tough economy. The project, “Growing Up Lost in Appalachia,” is now the first installment of an exploration of his generation’s experiences growing up amid high unemployment and breathtaking technological change.

 

But it didn’t start out that way.

 

It began with a blast — from a carrot cannon.

 

In October 2011, Mr. Bates, a 20-year-old sophomore at Ohio University, was driving around looking for something interesting to shoot. He was passing through New Straitsville, a former coal mining town in southeastern Ohio, when he came across a scene that made him stop.

 

'I saw this house that had tons of old stuff in the yard and a big old oil rig truck, and these two young men were making a carrot cannon in the front yard,” he said.'"
