    Yes, this would be great for essay writing, but I think it would work for all ages, especially our students who struggle with writing.

    Introduction
    Flickr allows the user to share pictures and two videos per month without a paid subscription. The simple user interface and numerous ways to login make this site very accessible to all users. The mobile application is also very intuitive and can connect to Facebook and Twitter for further media sharing. Albums can be made private so the pictures and videos are only shared with the people the user approves. This adds an extra level of privacy for the user.

    Incorporating Flickr into the Classroom
    There are numerous uses for a site such as this in a classroom. Students can upload pictures of just about anything they would like to share with the class. This can be useful in creating writing prompts and inciting classroom discussions. I would like my students to use it to keep me updated on long term out-of-class projects, with photographic evidence. I see this as extremely useful for a science fair project or any other experimentation. It is also a great way for a teacher to document successes in the classroom to duplicate the next year. The ability to share albums with only approved users is a great way to protect student privacy and keeps their work their own.

    While anonymity can be good it can be bad as well. I would worry about students bullying another student. I would have to figure out a way to protect against that as much as possible. I want to foster the right type of environment in the learning opportunity and I do not want my students to take advantage.
    I do not currently have any other questions, but I am sure as we move forward and I begin actually doing the work for this project questions will arise. Like it is probably a good guess that Jennifer accidentally deleted something that is a great question!

    I think a wiki could be great for my class as a way for students to share their ideas. I have several students who do not like to “write” yet they have no problem expressing their ideas if they are allowed to type them. This could be a great way for my special needs students to get the amazing ideas out of their heads and down on “paper” as well as sharing them with the rest of the class and school. My biggest safety concern is that of inappropriate content my students may stumble across. Of course, my district has numerous precautions in place, but there are always things that break through these filters. If students follow my guidelines for digital citizenship, most of my safety concerns will be alleviated.

    I like your presentation. You incorporate a lot of information into it. The videos are awesome. Instead of reading, I can watch the video. I would definitely want to use this tool. I like the two Prezi presentations. They are awesome!!
    The materials you presented to me were much more engaging, more like an attention grabber. Great presentation!
