Blogging Challenge, Identity and Picassoheads
Task One: This week’s Edublog’s blogging challenge asks us to reflect on our online identity compared to our “real life” identity. Т On my blog site and on Twitter, I tend to keep it professional. Т I’m interested in education and technology and I think writing, reflecting and reading about education helps make me a better teacher. Т For example, I’m completing this post because it’s something I’m asking my students to do (and if you “talk the talk” you need to “walk the walk”). Т In “real life” I’m interested in my children and doing fun things outside of school. Т I usually post these topics on Facebook. Т My Facebook style is more personal and whimsical.
Task Two: One of our visits to the Wexner Center this year will be to experience “After Picasso: 80 Contemporary Artists.”Т Some students and I played around with PicassoheadТ when exploring possible avatars. I encourage PAGES students and teachers to take a look at the gallery; you might see some of our self-portraits and you can even make your own.Т Т This is a fun way to introduce some of the elements of Picasso’s style!
