Thing Six: Mashups make a difference

So, I checked out the mashups and used the Bookr since I'm an LA teacher and it seemed like something I could really use in my classroom. I made a little book about me, which I am going to post in this blog, and it was really simple. I was able to search directly from Flickr and paste it into my pages, and then add text. I could definitely use this as a way to get to know students in my class. In fact, next year we might start the year with this and have them all paste them into my blog so that we can find out about each other. I'm sure they would love that! I could also use it as a form of storyboarding. They would do a visual book of their story before they actually start writing their story. That is only the tip of the iceberg as to what I could do with a site like this. I hope you enjoyed playing as much as I did. Off to see what my journey hold next...I think it's thing seven? signing off...

  1. cute story..your plan sounds fun too! and placing them in something like a blog will make keeping up with the various stories much easier. I do wih it was easier to find specific books, but that is part of using free of the product is often left up to the user!
