The PICOL Project

What happens when educators allow students to use their varying creative talents in producing unique works in order to meet course expectations?

The PICOL project is one example, that might herald the creation of a new open source visual language. The interview below gives you some insight into how Melih Bilgil created an original icon set that has the potential for changing the way we communicate ideas in digital media.

The video Melih produced to demonstrate the potential for the PICOL project, is outstanding start to his e-portfolio! After learning more about this story, maybe you'll join me in recommending that this project be showcased at TED?
