Week #3 Thing #6
As I was playing around on Flickr and looking at all the different tools that can be used, I first decided to try out the poster maker on http://www.bighugelabs.com/. The site had so many different options. I liked the idea of creating my own magazine cover. The picture on the magazine cover was taken this summer at my house. I love decorating with the American flag, so I thought a magazine celebrating patriotism would be fun. I think this would be a fun tool for the classroom. I also stumbled across a few other mashups that would be fun to try. One was called Bubbler which can take your pictures from Flickr and make a comic strip out of them. The other was called Captioner which will add captions to your pictures. I like the thought of using these tools to help with my creativity (or lack there of). I can see myself using them as a way to promote different activities and materials in the library.
