Task 2: Create Your Own Flickr Page

Having your own Flickr account with a collection of images that you can use for teaching can be really useful. Flickr is a great place to store, share and find useful images and there are many other sites and web 2.0 type tools that take images from flickr and use them in applications, so if you have your own Flickr account you can make sure you use your own images when working with students.

Monicaaparicio's curator insight, March 25, 2013 10:02 PM

Seems cool

Lyndsay's curator insight, April 3, 2013 10:17 PM

With the inclusion of literacy as a general capability within the Technologies Curriculum along with students being able to use a range of digital systems for diverse purposes (ACARA, 2013), this resource would be beneficial. It allows educators to use Fotobabble on the iPad to add audio recordings to images and then convert them to short video clips. This would also increase students engagement and would allow them to be involved in their learning.

Welcome to the School of You | Teachem | Techy Touchy Tools | Scoop.it

Teachem is a great platform for pulling together videos from around YouTube and forming them into lessons. The platform allows you to create questions for specific points in each video and students can watch and take notes. Useful platform for creating flipped learning that does a bit more than lecture.
