We see flowers all the time but we never give much thought to the name of those flowers. They are woven into our lives and surroundings. Jaxs and Kim owners of Creative Images by Jaxs and Kim started a photo gallery Flowers of all kinds In doing so that opened a door to learn more about the pictures they take of flowers.
When giving a description of a photo it just didn’t have a nice sounding ring to describe a flower as being pretty with the color of the flower attached to it. Everyone that has ever had a web site knows that somewhere there is a need to provide a description in one form or another. Jaxs and Kim take the challenge to learn more and give better descriptions of the flowers. Their enthusiasm got the attention of David Miller from Glasgow Scotland.
David is an award wining teacher, published composer, FRSA, National Teaching Fellow and Specialist in Emerging Technologies.
David has a talent of teaching his students integrating knowledge with technology. To creatively combine the two for a more exciting way to reach and encourage students to learn more and think outside of the box.
David once again has an idea to expand his classroom and encourage his students to learn more about the flowers around the world. David wants to use twitter as a teaching platform and encourage people to learn about flowers and in doing so we learn not only flowers but the culture and customs of others. Opening doors to embrace our differences and live in harmony just as the many species of flowers do.
David has launched In Flower on twitter. A world wide photography project of currently flowering plants.
David has invited Jaxs and Kim to participate in his newest project.
Jaxs and Kim love the idea and has accepted David’s offer. It is their profound hope that others will follow and join the World Flower Project.
