life snaps






here's the site i was telling you about....
for those i haven't told....
the photographer, simon hogsberg, photographed 150 people on the street and asked them what they were thinking right before he stopped them. the photos - partnered with the snapshot bio - become mini day-in-the-life experiences. click here to check it out.
interesting what we think about...what occupies space in our brain. i'm thinking the world would be a better place...more about peace...if we could get into each other's heads. (with the exception of that girl that thought faking blindness would be a great cover for a robbery.)
how about you? what were you thinking right before you checked this out? what occupies space in your brain?

what does it mean

sorry guys - couldn't get the video to attach.
if you're here - i'll assume you saw it in class.

please add your comments/thoughts/questions....what intrigued you the most? what does it all mean? for you? for us? for the world?

try to keep the conversation alive - by not just posting. come back to read other's comments and then respond to them if you're so inclined.

what would it take....

ok. take a look at this video. then think really hard with your incredible minds. ...
what would it take to engage you/me/us?
we all want our days to be meaningful. we spend so much of our time at school. let's be a part of something amazing. do you care enough to change it up? do you believe that YOU can?

i'm posting the url here too - just in case the link doesn't work.

3) do your best research/collaboration - you inspirational people you - to come up with a convincing "article" to sell the cell (in the classroom).

1) find out who might already be using it and what exactly they are doing. go for specific uses for math. share them here - so that you can feed off of each other's ideas.
2) pre search: take a look at the article and the podcast on our class site - the global achievement gap.
