Project Abstract

Focus on Learning will use digital photography to incorporate project-based learning into the grade 1 curriculum. It will motivate and engage students in our increasingly technological world. All students would be actively involved in their own learning, using cameras for a variety of projects in all subject areas. Looking at the world more closely will help focus students and encourage critical and visual literacy. Digital photography creates connections between literacy. Digital photography creates connections between literacy and math, teachers and students, and students, and between school and the world beyond.
