Learning New Tools

Part of the fun of this project is learning all the new ways to do it.  I have created a Flickr account to store my photos.  On Flickr, I joined the edtech365/2010 group, a group of educators that are all participating in this project.  All our photos will be tagged edtech3652010.  You can even map your photos, marking where they were taken.

As I continue to learn and use new tools for this project, my Flickr account is now linked to Picnik, used for editing the photos.  Once the photo is edited, I can then post it to this blog from Flickr itself.  When it's all said and done, I then use Share This to post links to my Twitter and Facebook accounts.  It's really quite easy.

The next step in all this fun is to incorporate all of this in my classroom.

  1. You can actually use an RSS feed to have your blog post as a note to your facebook automatically every time you update it. I also discovered the FLICKR blog this link and will be using it for all of my travel updates. ALthough I do like how you can click on the link in facebook and it brings you right here. Very handy. A 365 project is hard work to keep up with so I admire you doing it.
