Thing #5

This is a picture of the scoreboard at my old high school. My 20th year reunion is coming this October and I was feeling nostalgic. This photograph is titled Final Score and was taken by a photographer known as I'll Never Grow Up. I selected it from the attribution license group of photographs. I like Flickr quite a bit and have used it with my class to select photographs for different animal projects they were working on. My greatest concern is that sometimes inappropriate material comes up under simple searches, although this happens less in Creative Commons, but can still take place. Hopefully, the district is setting parameters to prevent these type photographs from getting through but nothing is foolproof. I like the fact that I can create my own private group for the students to use to see educationally appropriate photographs that I may want them to look at for a number of different topics. I also think the tag feature will be useful when I want students to describe things in their own words.

  1. eeek! Don't suggest the district control access to anything more on the web! We'll be blocked from Flickr! eeek!
    How cool that you found your high school scoreboard! I hadn't thought to search for something like that!
