Thoughts on teaching, technology, learning and life in an era of change.
Whoever invented stick figures was a genius
August 26th, 2008

Sketching on the whiteboard during Year 10 history today. Teaching the history of the womens’ movement in Australia. Exchanging ideas with the students regarding the glass ceiling. I asked the students to create a diagram that they felt illustrated the concept. I sketched my own. Consisted of stick figures.

As I sketched one of my students exclaimed, “Whoever invented stick figures was a genius!”.

It was a revelatory moment for her and also for me. That person was a genius.
