I asked a student to document her day in pictures and then interviewed her.

Hi Jodi
The role of the Media Specialist is so important within a school as it allows you to connect to all the students, and you are in the position of talking to them about their interests and then helping them to further their knowledge/experience by providing them with books and other tools. Choosing a book for someone which you know they will love is such a special skill, and forms a unique bond as the student feels that you really understand who they are.
Do you think you saw a different side to a student by talking to them about pictures they had taken, than by discussing which books they.do and don't like? Which is the more personal? or is it just more complete picture?
