Last post, I shared a bit about the important difference between explanation and expression and some of my experiences with these differences. I also promised to share what happened when I invited students in my college classes to visually communicate the meaning of their learning experiences. Here are a few amazing expressions of knowledge and insight.
Pam’s visual expression….. in her own words (condensed)
It’s name is the USS Contemplation. Each mast contains a genre and the sails equate the outline of what I have learned during this quarter.
The mirrors placed throughout the ship represent ”reflections” of what we have learned. A couple of the mirrors are placed so that individuals can see themselves. This is to show that we have not only learned about giving speeches but have also learned things about ourselves. I find myself thinking and contemplating that if the attitude of support, encouragement and kindness were displayed by the majority of people in our communities, in spite of our differences, just how much could be accomplished. People finding common ground and working together, building each other up, helping each other, growing together for the good and betterment of everyone’s future.
