When we collaborate across
and ways of knowing the world
we can USE difference and distance
to connect in ways
never before experienced or thought.
With EarthShapes, students and teachers
from different geographic locations work with each other and each others’
landforms. They imaginatively inter-relate
their own and strangers’ experiences of place (urban/rural, north/south, mountains/seashore).
Their multidisciplinary collaborations cross categories of knowledge and method.
When students from different genders, ethnicities, and nationalities collaborate, they cross socially constructed definitions of self and other.
Through EarthShapes, students and teachers USE difference and distance to make new senses of their own place, of their collaborator’s, and ultimately of each other.
