I had an exciting and inspiring conversation with a colleague a week ago about “visual culture,” which is a more comprehensive term that includes visual literacy. I don’t understand most of it right now, but I see the importance of helping students (and everyone) think about the images that they see all day every day. We are going to work this summer to develop resources for teachers and perhaps launch into some curriculum development as well.
It was then that I noticed that my blog posts are pretty much all text even though I consider myself am a visual person. In the spirit of #FacebookFreeFebruary and the #whole30, my goal for the next 4 weeks is to take at least one picture per day and post it to instagram, focusing on a weekly theme.

The first week’s theme will be #PLACE
I hope you will join me!
