What is MY point of view? How does it differ from YOUR (or THEIR) point of view?

The answers to these questions are fundamental to understanding the world, one’s self, the day’s lesson in English/math/science/history/etc., or simply the news.

In this lesson, participants will, like students, identify their own strengths, influences, biases, understanding, and the “stuff” they don’t understand about (for example, literature, geometry, genetics, Syrian refugees, or the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

We’ll start by focusing on what is most knowable -- ourselves.
WHAT am I (skills, relationships, values)?
WHY am I this way (influences, experiences, preferences)?
HOW can I maintain or change what I am?

Then we’ll pick an area to research “What’s it like to be someone who ….?” (loves poetry, uses geometry in their job, became an astronaut, fled Syria, lost a parent, etc.). Using a myriad of tech tools, we’ll (1) gather information (Google Power Search, StoryCorps, etc.), (2) sort and prioritize, (3) synthesize using audio and video as well as the written word (Screencastify, GreenScreen by DoInk, ExplainEverything), and (4) present what we’ve created (Hyperdocs, YouTube, etc.).
