Deep Immersion in the Experience
Posted 05 Jun 2019 in
Place-based education is about deep immersion in the experience of the world surrounding us, engaging in what is happening and what is meaningful. This approach embraces the complexities of the world and harmoniously recognises these as relative connections to place.
These Bold Park Community School students have been creating their own map and models of the school to assist them in sharing their favourite spaces.
What they found through their research was that the images available through online resources such as Google Earth did not contain all the information they wanted to capture and share. This led them to question how they could capture all the areas they wanted to share. How could they share what was important and memorable to them? They decided to capture their own images using a drone above the school from a position high enough to see the whole campus.
