It's official, I've joined the '366 Photos' group at Flickr. Seems to consist primarily of educators at this time. I'll be taking a picture a day, which is great since I've been wanting to push myself to using my digital camera a bit more (I did make great strides by now carrying my camera with me in my purse whereever I go). It's also a means for me to focus (note that I DID NOT say 'add' -- since that would go against my 'reduce' 2008 resolution!) a little more of my time on creativity which I've been wanting to do for a while. Some groups require that you upload one picture a day EVERY day so I've posted a question to the group about time management and the ability to post a week's worth of photos at a time. That would definitely help to 'reduce' my time-on-task.
And how will I 'reuse' (another 2008 resolution) this activity? Simple! I plan on sharing the photos with my 4th grade classes and having them vote on the ones that should be uploaded. (That's another reason I want to upload only once a week.) We'll be looking at content, layout, color, etc. in preparation for a digital photography unit in the spring.
So what are you waiting for? Head on over and 'join' today! I was #25 to join.
NOTE: It would be WONDERFUL if all of us would tag our photos with Creative Commons licensing allowing us to use these images in the classroom with/by our students (as appropriate). This group could then become another resource for teachers to use for images.
