A site maintained by teachers for teachers
Flickr is a photo sharing site, where one can post his photos at one site. This site is convenient both for your personal usage and even for the people on the web, as one can easily find pictures of their interest. Photos can be posted with titles, captions, and notes. Therefore, these would make it easier for people to understand what is the reason behind posting that particular photo.
Moreover, Flickr has many features that makes it ideal for using it in classroom. It is important for the teacher to make the photos available to the entire public so that there would not be the need to send the link to every student by email. My favourite feature on Flickr is that it makes it easier for you to organise your photos. This can be done by clicking on the “Organize and Create” on the menu at top. Photos can then be organised by dragging them into folders. Another feature ideal for using Flickr in classroom is the group collaboration feature. This is much more interactive and interesting for students than any traditional slide show. Students can easily do this by creating their own groups and collaborate together online. Teachers could also use Flickr to integrate it with a recorded lecture and to create a digital storytelling.
