Why You Should Use Digital Images


I am a huge fan of using digital images in my classroom.  They’re simple, yet powerful resources we have right at our fingertips and quite often they’re FREE!  A few months ago I discussed Five Fabulous Reasons to Use Flickr and this weekend Burt and I recorded Episode 8 of the Ed Tech Classroom podcast. This episode focuses on using digital images as instructional tools.  We discuss where you can find images and strategies for providing them to your students. Should you really let your students loose on Flickr?  We also provide lesson ideas for increasing vocabulary skills and having students demonstrate content knowledge using pictures.  If you have a few spare moments on this Veteran’s Day swing by the Ed Tech Classroom blog (or look for us on iTunes) and have a listen.
