Flickr has added a cool new feature to its repetoire – galleries
This feature allows one to create a collection/set of other people’s photos
I can see some interesting uses for this – including a “webquest” of sorts for students….
As students to create a gallery of minerals or silicate minerals… or other types. Specify that they cannot use more than 2 photos from anyone person.. and ask them to create an introduction that describes what those minerals are, why they are important..
Ask them to create a gallery of photos on a topic, and reflect on the significance, or what they learned…”
Hmmm… maybe that would be a good intro exercise for students to find examples corresponding to items on the geologist’s “Lifetime list”…
If all students have their own account, ask them to create galleries for a specific purpose from other students’ photos…
All kinds of ideas floating…
