For the last two days, I have been in St. Charles, Illinois at The Illinois Technology Conference for Educators. I've learned so much in these two short days and my "idea list" for projects to do with my students has grown with each session. One resource that I can't wait to use is fd's flickr toys (via Charlene Chausis and her session My Friend Flickr). Although inspired by flickr, these "toys" can be used with any photo you have on your computer. Classroom photos can be used to create trading cards, movie posters, magazine covers, slide shows, and more. You can also add comic book style captions and transform photos into pop art or collage! This bead art feature may not be as practical to my teaching. However, since my kids love perler beads, I couldn't resist!
