This podcast is a recording of a presentation I shared this week about using the free websites Flickr and Bubbleshare for digital storytelling and collaborative projects with students in different grade levels. Flickr is far more than a photo sharing website: It is a social network that permits people to collaboratively create pools of images, but also discuss issues and find answers to questions on its free discussion boards. Flickr has its own mail system permitting users to contact each other while still protecting the email privacy of everyone, and is ideal for collaborative projects with a regional, national, or international focus. As a web-based digital storytelling tool, Bubbleshare is a great for adding voice narration to images. Both of these tools can and should be used in classrooms to help learners of all ages appropriately and safely write the web of the 21st century.
