OCT222009, originally uploaded by colemama.

Bright sunny days ... and still quite warm (90 degrees high today) for October! Increasing the contrast in this photo helps to bring out the frond fraying as well as the sun 'shine'! Accentuating features can provide a slightly different interpretation to this photo - and going beyond the original shows manipulation and engagement. Visual learners connect with images such as these, but developing and reflecting on their own creations takes it to a deeper level. Some days I really do wish we could throw away the textbooks, break out of the confines of the classroom and really put the 'teacher-facilitators' and the students in a open environment for innovative learning.
