I have been having a great summer of golf...not that I am a good golfer but I love to be out there doing it! Teachers at my school have shared some great Apps on our Edmodo Tech site, so I used them to interact with my photos!
The first idea is based on an article in The Reading Teacher (May issue) called 'Every Word is On Trial; Six-Word Memoirs in the Classroom'. The article suggests having students create 6-word memoirs and then incorporating technology in the classroom by using www.flickr.com for some free photos...or you can use your own. Then use www.phixr.com to edit photos.. Great idea. I included mine below but the article includes even more examples! Here is a link to the article: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/trtr.1267/abstract
Here is a link to a great article on Six Word Memiors: Six Word Memoirs in the Classroom
And a link to her class project: Six Words.mov
ThingLink allows you to use any photo and create links on the image. This can be used to link photos, images, text, websites, sound, and youtube videos. Students can use a photo and link all the research that they have found related to the photo. Here is my ThingLink using my summer golf photo! Click to check it out!
