Knowledge, Learning, Community
Absolutely fantastic presentation on photography by Alane Levine. Several threads are woven through this talk (summary, slides, video): the difference between amateur and professional, the impact of shooting a photo a day, what learning photography teaches us about learning in general, the use of photos to tell stories, the question of whether photos record truth, the capacities and features (ISO, aperture, shutter speed) of the camera. Presented using examples from Flickr Creative Commons photographs, the whole is engaging, thoughtful, and passionate. Do take the time to browse through the links and additional resources at the bottom of the presentation page. See also: six applications of photography in education.
