Assignment: What's in your pocket?

Keys by me
Punya Mishra has a lot to tell us about design in general and educational design in particular, how artifacts give meaning to our lives and how they are tied to our identity. So partly inspired by Punya's teachings, Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried, and partly out of curiosity, I'm setting out to see what things have meaning to my students. Specifically what things they carry with them through the school day.

Although I consider myself not all that materialistic, I'm beginning to see how things matter.

To get a sense for how this assignment will go, I wrote a reflection of sorts (see image below).

The Things I Carry
