#blimage

blimage

Curiosity got the better of me and I had to find out what the #blimage was going on in my Twitter feed. Turns out there’s some viral edu-blogging going on. Give someone a picture and challenge them to turn it into a learning related post. This youtube video from the originator @AmyBurvall explains it nicely.

I found my pic on the #blimage pinterest board. I feel like that’s cheating because I got to choose from a great selection. This one reminded me of my Babitech avatar, and also of a podcast I listened to recently about the maker movement.

Making is not just about robots and Minecraft, it’s about understanding your environment, making meaning from the physical objects and space around you. Going back to first principles and learning by doing. A makerspace does not need thousands of pounds worth of equipment, (as nice as that would be) rather like this challenge it’s about creativity in constraint.

All you need is time, some basic materials and curiosity.

That apple in my #blimage, it’s a battery, a stamp, a pie filling, a jam, a sauce, a hallowe’en game, an embryonic orchard, cider, part of a makeymakey piano, a tree decoration, a shrunken head, a source of pectin and 20 other chemicals, a floating tea-light holder…

The ethernet cable however is useless, I’ve got wifi!

Readers of this and the Pontydysgu blog, I challenge you to continue the game of #blimage with a picture from https://www.pinterest.com/sensor63/blimage/ or with this;

A few people have asked recently, “What exactly do you do?” and I struggle to give a simple answer.  So here’s a portfolio and a link to some cool infographics instead!

And because I’m feeling extra nice, there’s a link here to some bookmarks we used in a training session with careers advisors on using web2.0
