A weblog designed to share Geography resources with students and colleagues

Monday, March 28, 2011



It seems as though most of the work we are displaying just now relates to the tsunami, although some is past work which I am just now getting a chance to review. However, this is a piece of work which started as something different but, through the students themselves, became focused on current events. This is very important in my mind as it is student led learning rather than a teacher force feeding disaster facts. The students concerned also took this home to complete without invitation. I am really drawn to the unconscious prioritisation of elements of the collage. It seems to me that by placing rescue at the centre and 'Hope' on its own outwith the cluster of words, the piece of work retains an optimistic quality to offset the images of disaster.
