Flickr for Teachers

for teachers

Sometime in the next few days I plan on beginning a concept album with the above title. As you know if you read this blog, I love flickr. Since discovering this site, I have thought of, and blogged, multiple uses for it for teachers. The songs on this concept album will each describe a different use for flickr in the classroom, with an emphasis on the mathematics classroom.

Let me stress that this is not a how-to--you will not learn how to upload photos or tag images. The information will be restricted entirely to classroom uses of the site. Below is a table of contents, which I'm sure will change in the coming days.
