Having fun with photos

I looked at Flickr, Picnik, Picasa, and PhotoFunia. I already have a flickr account and I have kept some photos there. I found PhotoFunia to be a lot of fun. I feel like I could have a lot of fun with this program in class. My students could use this to change a picture of themselves and then write about the history of the picture. This would include creative writing. I took a few pictures and I really enjoyed changing them and making them look cool. Here they is a picture of me and my nephew.

    Great response, Julie! I too like Photfunia. There is not a lot of classroom application with that resource, but it is fun to use. Students might use it as place to create fun profile pics. Your idea about having them write about the time in history was great!

  2. Julie, I really like the creative writing idea. Kids love pictures and putting themselves at a spot in history could help generate interest in an otherwise (sometimes) boring place. I love history but I've had some difficulty instilling that excitement in students.
