Virtual Learning Portraits

During the 11th week of NIS Online, Ms. Feil challenged the Primary students to reflect on their Online Learning experience and create a virtual learning portrait. The project was inspired by photographer Gregg Segal, a professional photographer that uses photography as a medium to explore culture and society. He has two notable and interconnected projects called ‘7 days of Trash’ and ‘Daily Bread’ that portray how our consumption is having an effect on our bodies and planet. With that inspiration, Ms. Feil challenged the students to use a photo to depict what learning at home was like for them. They gathered such things as their learning materials, items from their learning spaces, and other objects that reflected their personalities. The results were so creative! The finished projects are so fun to look at that it seems obvious the students and their photographic assistants had a magnificent time with the process!
