Mariah at Playful Learning is offering a photo journal e-course for kids (and grown-ups) during the month of November. My girls and I will be participating and we are so excited! Both of my girls love taking photographs, so I know we are going to have lots of fun.
Here are the basic details about the course – you can visit Playful Learning for more information & registration:
Through the Lens: Explorations in Photo Journaling is an e-course that has been created for children (and their grown-ups) ages six through twelve. Participants will gain new understanding of themselves and the world around them by exploring a variety of photography and writing techniques while creating and adding to their own photo journals.
Each week participants will receive a video that introduces basic concepts of photography and writing, an assignment, recommended reading, and relevant printables and links. The entire course can be done at each individual’s own pace, and all of the content will remain available to participants long after the course is complete. Parents and teachers will also receive guidance on how to differentiate the assignments based on a child’s age and ability.
Dates: Wednesdays, November 2, 9, 16, 23
Ages: 6-12 (and their grown-ups) and teachers that would like to learn more about incorporating photography into their writing program.
Cost: $78 for four weeks
Materials needed: digital camera, ability to print photos and blank journal
We will be able to interact using individual accounts on VoiceThread – posting pictures, telling stories, and recording comments for others. I’m really curious to try out this new-to-me interface.
For more info, head to the Playful Learning site. Let me know if you decide to register – it would be fun to “see” you there!
