Moving at the Speed of Creativity by Wesley Fryer

Visualizing Sharing #edushare

Two of my top goals as an education advocate and “innovative instructional coach” in Yukon Public Schools this semester are to:

  1. help teachers overcome their fears about using multimedia with students to develop literacy skills
  2. encourage teachers to SHARE more

As I prepared for the two presentations I shared on Tuesday this week at our statewide educational technology and library conference in Oklahoma, I searched for compelling images which convey ideas about sharing. These ideals will hopefully be manifested in the new website project, Oklahoma EduSHARE. Some of these images are funny, some are poignant. All of them say, with pictures, “I’m sharing.” I love visual media which communicates in compelling ways.

Do you have a favorite image of SHARING? Consider taking that on as a professional development activity challenge in upcoming months: Working with a partner, take a photo which communicates some aspect of SHARING. Alternatively, find an image which visually represents SHARING. When you take or find a photo, post the image to Flickr and/or share it on Twitter using the tag/hashtag edushare / #edushare.

Dean Shareski is right, sharing is a moral imperative for educators!
