The Alignment of Values


Mutatis Mutandis "having changed the things that were to be changed"

 

The Tinker School Avatar is our map.

Key ideas contributing to the map design included having a growth mind set, "know how, can do" attitude, connection through personal and shared project work, choice creation & decision-making, problem solving skills, self management and self awareness.

A game was played with the students where each idea was drawn. All these ideas were put into a journey picture. The final result has become our map, our avatar.
 

SELF & COMMUNITY

There is YOU

The house is symbolic of your own self and soul. It is your home and community. This is where you are safe. It shelters daydreaming, protects the dreamer and allows one to dream in peace. From here, you control the story. This is your journey, you are the Hero.

The characters say "dōjō " meaning 'place of the way'. Here you will find answers to the questions; 'Who are you?' and 'What do you stand for?'
 

DOOR & THRESHOLD

There are things KNOWN, and things UNKNOWN, and in between are the doors.

The door symbolises entrances into new worlds. The hero passes the threshold to mark the beginning of the journey. It is the departure from the known world into the unknown world.

 

CRISIS & OPPORTUNITY

There are PROBLEMS and SOLUTIONS

The bolt or lock symbolises control, knowledge, freedom, access, a way forward and responsibilities. It respresents both a crisis and opportunity, a solution to a problem. You are heading in the right direction and asking the right questions in the process. It is symbolic of decisive action.


 

ACTION & ABILITY

There is CONNECTION and CAPABILITY

The hand symbolises how we connect to the world. We achieve connection through doing. According to Aristotle, the hand is the 'tool of tools'.

The tool symbolises self expression, skills and abilities. It reflects a 'know how, can do' resourcefulness.


 

GROWTH & QUALITY

There is GROWTH

The lotus flower symbolises rising from a dark place into beauty and rebirth. It serves as encouragement & hope in dark and uncertain times. It represents growth, purity, quality and the expansion of the soul.



 

It is to serve as a visual stimulus that embodies the meaning of purposeful activity when working on a project.
