How would you complete that sentence? Think visually. 

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. We will model a simple process teachers and administrators can take back to their schools to engage their colleagues in meaningful discussions that culminate with creating a core set of shared values. Ideally these core values will inform the conversations administrators and teachers have about their professional growth. Teachers can also use the same process with their students to foster deep discussions around the content they are learning in their classes.

If time permits, we'll also discuss how these ideas can be shared globally. (You'll need a flickr account, get it before BLC12, and access to your email for that. NB: You do NOT need to do this to participate.)

Bring your own laptop.
