'35mm Seeing' - Formatting Photography Through The Lens Of Two Practitioners
A workshop that presents two approaches to teaching photography including some hands on quick activities. In this session, Lee and Kirsty will share ways that they have approached teaching Photography over the past few years in response to e-learning.
As we move every year further towards truly ubiquitous technology, new online tools in the education and visual media space are constantly being released, improved and replaced. The speed of these changes can be exciting but also frustrating. Lee has tried to keep up to speed with many of these tools and now 3 years into the Waitakere College BYOD programme has a range of strategies that have improved access to student work, and supported peer feedback and collaboration. Lee will share the gems and the pitfalls of his journey into a more digital classroom. While on the other hand, Kirsty will share her approach to teaching using a dual platform of the ‘physical hands on’ and the ‘digital’ as a Microsoft 365 school.
