Thing #5 - Flickr

Flickr- I'm still not comfortable with this one.  I've been playing with it for awhile, but I'm just not exactly sure how I'm going to use it in the library with all levels.  In the secondary setting it's applications are obvious to me.  It's the elementary setting that is perplexing me.  I know that students can use it for downloading pictures for powerpoints, glogsters, etc., but past that I don't know.  I really liked the explanations they shared on use and copyrights for the pictures.  The variety of pictures available is astounding - make sure you search by "tags."   My biggest question is, "Where was this sight when I taught World Geography?"

  1. I think you really have answered your own question...students of various ages will use it for different reasons and more often depending on their needs. You were ask to review it simply to see the potential and ONE example of picture collections available online! Some ages and subjects will benefit more than others.

  2. think about using a thumb drive for younger students...add lots of pictures to some for a class and let the younger kids make choices from there

  3. I can imagine that for library use, you could create mosaics, etc. and make posters to highlight book themes or settings. You could encourage students to create visuals for the library as a response to books they have read.

  4. What a neat idea! Two heads are better than one. Thanks

  5. Absolutely stunning work you have done...
