Week 3 Photos and Images


What a week!!!!!
Victorian Public library Staff enrolled over 500 blogs in the Learning 2.0 Program last week......
what an accomplishment!!!

(what a challenge for us frantically putting your blogs onto participants lists, updating tracking logs and setting up RSS feeds and commenting on your wonderful achievements ...

This week activities look at the photosharing site Flickr. You will also get to play around with Flickr mashups and 3rd party sites . The image above has been generated on a 3rd party billboard site called Big Huge Labs.

To go to the Activities for this week, go to your library blog down the side of this page and click on the activities associated with Week 3 - Photos and Images

Some Hints for this week
