01.12.11, a photo by colemama on Flickr.

Not much in today's camera - just one of those days! The class I teach, Intro to Tech for Educators, at Edison State College started tonight....and I discovered this copper siding on the new Science Bldg. As you can tell from the palm's shadow, the sun was still pretty strong and thus various gradations of light reflected off the copper. It is strange to me - I've never seen copper siding on a building and it is only on one section. I will need to investigate it further, but for now just an image to remind me of a task.

As with every 'first' class, one usually does introductions and ice-breakers to start the creation of an interactive culture. This time I asked students to respond to some questions - fairly typical..but the twist was that instead of writing all of the answers, they had to provide a response via a drawing of some kind and could not use text to communicate. It turned out to be a great way to share more than one might think - i.e., right brain/left brain modalities, comfort level with something a bit out of the ordinary, and their unique perspective (when you think about it words are pretty ordinary, but drawings are more individual/personal). Ok - strange musings ... but that is what flowed from this photo! ;) Edison State College, Naples, FL


  1. Neat idea about drawing instead of writing! Nice photo too - I like the contrast of gold and green

  2. I like the colours - the copper and the green of the windows. It "drew my attention"
