Perspective

Perspective has a Latin root meaning "look through" or "perceive," and all the meanings of perspective have something to do with looking. Perspective taking is the ability to look beyond your own point of view, so that you can consider how someone else may think or feel about something. It's where you consider someone else's thoughts and feelings about something to see things from their perspective. Having perspective is essential for the interpretation of “why” and “how” situations happen and the capacity to respond appropriately. When one can grasp another’s perspective, they are more likely to be empathetic, anticipate other’s behaviour or thinking, handle conflicts peacefully, be less judgmental, value differences, and act in ways that are more helpful, supportive and kind. The activities sourced and designed provide opportunities for children and students to ‘walk in another’s shoes’ and examine different aspects of their own lives. Mastering perspective and sense making is a habit that students need for every part of life—from handling friendship conflicts today to mastering boardroom debates tomorrow.

What’s In Apicture?

Using photos students analyse differing perspectives of the same view. Students are asked to share their perspective and compare their own “smaller” views to others’ perspectives and the “bigger picture”. By viewing and listening to other interpretations of the same picture students can experience points of view and apply multiple perspectives – considering the whole picture!
