Using Flickr For Language Teaching

Along with access to video, the access to huge libraries of images is a revelation for language teachers and one of the main advantages of being a tech teacher (webhead). 

Flickr is probably the best resource for this and I'd advise every teacher to learn how to access the Flickr library to get quality images.  Here briefly are my favorite Flickr tools/apps for taking advantage of this wonderful resource. 


1. Flickr Storm-  allows you to search for Creative Commons photos on Flickr that are copyright free for educational purposes.  See other royalty free sites.


2. Flickr Poet-  Just type in some vocabulary and you'll get a series of images for the words. Students can then practice by telling a story using the images. Complete description/ideas here


3. Random Flickr Image Generator - Fragr.   Simply complete the captcha one time (so you identify yourself as legit) and then get random images from Flickr to use for discussion (simply refresh your screen). 


4. Flickr Memory - make a memory style game about a selected topic (Flickr tag).  Just type in the topic and you'll get a matching style flickr game that students can play. 


5.  5 Card Flickr  -  similar to Flickr Poet, get 5 random Flickr images and then challenge students to make them into a story. Complete description here.

6Tag Galaxy - pull up tagged images. Very attractive format students will enjoy. 


There are an infinite number of ways to use Flickr with your students ranging from simply doing a Flickr Field Trip and having students present to getting students to create their own accounts and upload photos with labels using their cell phones.  This presentation highlights some of these ideas and more ....
