"Teach Them to Play: Harnessing Chance, Construction, and Imagination in the Photography Classroom"

Rachael Hulme and Jacob Cecil (T&L)

Saturday, March 12 - 11:00AM to 11:45AM
Red Rock Ballroom I

Through hands-on exploration with materials and concepts in a photography classroom, this presentation will guide participants through the process of using play as a powerful pedagogical tool for teaching students to generate ideas. We will discuss a unit facilitated with 10th-12th grade photography students on constructed realities, showing examples of scaffolded assignments for students through a balance of collaborative in-class activities and solo image-making. Participants will leave having experienced an assignment themselves, as well as with many prompts and ideas for incorporating play into their own classroom practices.
