Using Photovoice to Develop School-to-School Exchanges in Asia

Photovoice is a teaching methodology that asks students to represent their lives visually by taking photographs of themselves and their communities.

U.S. teachers who would like their students to gain a personal perspective on everyday life in Asia will find Photovoice an inexpensive and engaging way to connect students across cultures. Photovoice works by having students in the two partnered schools take digital photographs of their daily lives and exchange them with each other online. The project offers opportunities for one-on-one dialogue and group discussion via e-mail that can lay the groundwork for institutionalized school-to-school partnerships in the future.

For questions regarding a Photovoice project at your school, contact the EASC NCTA coordinator.
