Online Photo Sharing
What is Online Photo Sharing?
-Online Photo Sharing is the use of websites such as Picasa, Photobucket, Flickr, and ImageShack to store and share photos online.
-Many of the these websites are free, however, there are some that charge for storage.
History of Online Photo Sharing
-The first Online Photo Sharing websites emerged during the mid to late 1990s. These sites existed primarily for the purpose of ordering prints online.
- During the new millenium, many more websites emerged with the goal of providing access and storage to everyone.
How can Online Photo Sharing be used in the classroom?
 Online Photo Sharing can have NUMEROUS applications in the classroom.
-Preservation of classroom work ( to show progression)

-For class projects (for example science projects; you can take picture of the steps in an experiment that you may be doing as a class. You can also take pictures of the students when they are actively engaged in the experiment.)




-These pictures can be shared with parents so that instead of hearing from their children one word of what they have learned in school on a certain day; parents can go online and use the URL that the teacher provides so that only parents can go on and view the photos and see what their child is doing throughout the day.




-Viewing pictures of school assemblies or school events. (This is a great aspect of online photosharing because if there are major school events that a parent may not be able to attend due to other important committments, then parents can feel included and see pictures of  a performance that students were in.)


-Teachers can make individual albums of students with each students picture on the front cover of the albums and teachers can store individual photos of students works, awards, etc.. in the corresponding folders. (This is great becasue parents may only wants to see their child's work and instead of them searching through all the photos they can look at the ones that have their child or their child's work.) ( Also, this is a good way to stay organized and let parents view their child's work first and then other student pictures as well) (This aspect also reassures parents that their child is involoved and of equal impotance to the class as every other student.)
