As you can see, I have finally worked out how to post other people's pictures from Flickr onto my blog!

I came across a bit of a error when I was posting these photos. When I was trying to post some of these photo's, I found out that not all of the photo's can be posted onto a blog. If you look down to the post titled 'My Journey', you will see that there are still some links to some photo's. These are the photo's that I would like you all to see, but I cannot work out how to attach them to my blog. If anyone has shed any light on this issue, if you could tell me, that would be great!

With regards to utilising Flickr in the classroom, I think flickr would be a valuable tool to use. Flickr could help engage the learners of your classroom if you went onto the topic of family, history, war, overseas, poverty and many many others. The amount of pictures that you can gather from Flickr is amazing, there is millions of images available for all to see. This little website would be a great tool to utilise if you had an overhead projector in your classroom and could broadcast these images for all the students to see.

Flickr would also be beneficial to use within a power point presentation, if you were wishing to put pictures on it. If you were doing some sort of dramatic presentation, and you really wanted to hit home with violence, poverty, etc. you could gather images from Flickr that really pull all the right heart strings.

All in all, I think Flickr would be a great tool to utilise within the classroom.

    I love your pics of Thailand. I was living there for a couple of years, and I can tell you, my pics are not as spectacular LOL.
