The fabulous Mr U, (aka: Jeff Utecht) showed me this FlickrCC search tool after our meeting the other day.
Click on the image you like the look of, and this screen appears next:
As a presenter, the stamp option is fabulous!! Check out what it does below!
I do wish this site did have a safe-search option ……… I’d love to introduce it to our students, but for now, I think we will stick with Compfight as it allows us to have a Safe-Search on, which makes it appropriate for use at school.
You can find out more about what we’ve been discussing with our students about Creative Commons & using Compfight over at our “model blog” for student blogging.
What conversations are you having at your school with students about the use of images in our work?
I’m home from ASBUnplugged 2010 – graciously hosted by the American School of Bombay – February 24-27. As I begin the process of reflecting on the sessions/workshops that I attended – editing and organising my notes for posting, I thought I would share this little video with you. I managed to get out and about for about 2 hours with the wonderful Simon May and the equally fabulous Kim Cofino, to explore Linking Road, Mumbai, India. The traffic catches your attention almost immediately so I thought I’d try to capture a little reminder of what it was like as we explored.
Welcome to Room 207 for Summer School Session 1
We’ll be using this blog to help us get to website links that we will be using and
to show and share our work during this first summer school session
Our weekly newsletter will be posted here so that we can save paper (and trees!)
I’m looking forward to getting to know you all over the next four weeks!
It has been an absolute pleasure to have spent the last year with these crazy, funny, great 3rd Graders!
If you haven’t seen them already, please ask your child at some stage for their flashdrive.
(it’s in their headphones bag)
On the flashdrive is “Oh, How You’ve Grown” and “A Year in Reverse” – it’s always such fun looking back over the year in photos!
Our poetry cafe videos will be up on our YouTube Channel by tomorrow.
(See the link on the right hand side under Our Learning Links).
This blog will may be deleted at the end of JULY (but I might transfer the content to another blog) – so if you want to copy anything or bookmark any links please do so by then.
Our YouTube channel link and our Class Photos on Flickr links will STILL exist – so don’t forget to bookmark those (it’s only this blog that may disappear – not the content).
Have a safe, relaxing summer break and all the best for the future!
