Task 4 - Getting Started with Flickr


is a photo sharing online space that can be used to share your photos with friends and family, keep them stored online in public or private view. However, Flickr goes much beyond it. It's an online social space in which people talk about and through images. They create groups, collaborate, talk, learn from one another. In fact, Flickr can be a powerful platform for the classroom. And, from now on, we'll explore its pedagogical potential. The Images4Education Team hopes you truly enjoy the ride!
