What Can We Do With Flickr?

This cluttered desk represents just a small set of powerful ways you can use flickr. This image has been annotated with "notes", so as you move a mouse over hotspot areas, pop-up messages will appear, some of them with links that can take you elsewhere.

Explore these links to learn some ways you can leverage the power of flickr.

    After seeing this I have been trying to find something that easily ties in to use this feature of flickr with my students.

    We're working on labeling angle drawings right now with the notes. It has been working great. Great job done by all of the ability levels in my classroom. I haven't gotten to the point of allowing them to make flickr accounts at school (yet), and I haven't received an email from IT (yet) about my account being logged in to 16 computers ;)
    Our Angle Drawings

  2. cogdogblog ages ago | reply

    Hey Mr Williams-- that is really neat! I see the kids did the drawings (nice variety)... did they also identify the angles?

  3. mrwilliams ages ago | reply

    Yes (but we're still working on it). They were suppose to put a note on each angle with the degrees and labeling the angles (acute, right, obtuse, straight). If we were doing this longer I'd invite you to come in to my classroom (about 51st ave & northern), but we'll be wrapping this up soon (and I know your pretty busy ;) ).

    I'm doing a webinar presentation next week - an intro to web 2.0 - the steps people can take to start. I'm showing this as a stellar example of how to use flickr creatively.
