Spell with Flickr (a tool I will certainly use to create visual interest)

The third week encourages participants of the 23 things @ MPJ adventure to take an closer look at online applications, third party tools and ‘mashups’ using images found on Flickr.

Comments:

Mappr – allows you to take Flickr images and paste them on a map. Note: As of 2007, Mappr is no longer processing images from flickr. Take a look at flickr to find images on maps.

Flickr Map – Photos are often tagged with information that can be used to make educated guesses about their locations in the world. Mappr uses this data, which is provided by Flickr users to place their images on a map.

Flickr Map is a useful tool for teachers to use if they want to take students on virtual trips and plot out historical and/or geographical connections.

Montager – Users can create a photo mosaic from photos found on Flickr by either search through tags or by uploading their own picture.

Montager is a useful tool for teachers to help students remove themselves from compartmentalizing ideas and and visualizing connections to prior knowledge or to a larger concept or area. Very helpful for pre-writing and planning stages in the writing process.

Alternative:

Big Huge LabsMosaic Maker: A world of creative photo possibilities

Make a mosaic from a photoset, favorites, tags, or individual digital photographs or images. It’s a whole world of creative photo possibilities — themes, colors, shapes. So, get that digital camera out and shoot some photos!

Big Huge LabsTrading Card: Turn your photos into trading cards!

User can create their very own collectible trading card using a Flickr photo or by uploading their own photo.

Trading Card is a useful tool for teachers to create flash cards of information about historical (or current) figures, places or events. In addition students with Learning Disabilities (including Multiple Exceptionalities or Developmental Delayed students) can use these trading cards to tap into their multiple learning styles (KinestheticAuditory and Visual) and create study aids, routines or recognition patterns.
