I’ve been doing some research into Flickr in the classroom lately and I came across (once again) this example that I just wanted to note. It’s an “History of Western Art and Civilization: Renaissance to the Modern Era” class at FIT in New York City. Barbara had mentioned it last fall, but I didn’t get a chance to look at it closely until today. A lot of annotations and discussion about what the work achieves from an aesthetic sense. It gives you a pretty good idea of what the potentials are…

I know that when I did my Teacher’s Toolbox class last week, Flickr was a big hit. In fact I’ve been talking with some science teachers who are trying to figure out how to use it with photos of dissections. Mmmmm.
