When Richard Byrne allowed some of us to guest post on his Free Technology for Teachers blog last week, I was fascinated by the variety in the posts. This one, in particular, struck me. The simplicity of the idea makes me regret that I haven’t tried this before now. But I certainly have plans to incorporate it in my classroom soon, thanks to the author, Alison Anderson. Ms. Anderson basically encourages the use of videos and photography in the classroom. This is not new to me. But I love the ways she incorporates them. For example, she takes pictures of the kids “in action” during class, then posts them, and assigns this homework: “Narrate what was happening and what you were thinking about in these 5 pictures of you in class today.” What a great reflection piece! I highly recommend that you read the rest of Ms. Anderson’s article to find out more ways to use cameras in the classroom.

I really enjoyed your piece on the guest blogger who photographs her students. I am excited to introduce that to my faculty!
