Thing # 5

As an English teacher I immediately wanted to search for pictures of books. When I couldn't find just the right one I instead typed poetry in the search box. This is a pretty cool photo uploaded by Steve Rhodes to the Flikr Commons.
I really like the Flikr website. I usually stay away from pictures on the web because I am always fearful that I will break copyright laws; however, I am excited to find pictures that I feel comfortable using in my classroom. It is very neat how the commons breaks down what is acceptable for each group of pictures.

  1. I was also happy to find a way of using more pictures in my presentations and work. With all the rules and laws about copyrights sometime I feel it is better to just stay safe than to attempt to try something that might be a copyright infringement. I am so glad to find Flikr makes it possible to find many pictures to use that are allowable and free.
