I uploaded my first photograph to #eltpics this afternoon. I’ve been meaning to contribute for some time. It’s super simple and is a great resource for educators to find photos licensed under the Creative Commons, and of course it’s hoped that you will share too. A new theme is published every two weeks, but you can share other photos and tag it into the category you want it published under.
I uploaded my photo to Google, shared it, copied the link, and tweeted from TweetDeck.
Here are some links with more information:
- #eltpics photos on flickr
- Elt pics homepage
- Sandy Millin: How to Join In – Be sure to follow the links to some great examples of teachers using #eltpics
- Carol Goodey uses a #eltpic and cites it.
I first heard about #eltpics from @VickyLoras and now I offer thanks! There are several moderators who take the photos from Twitter and upload them into the proper categories in Flickr: @cgoodey, @fionamau, @JulieRaikou, @mkofab, @sandymillin. I offer them a big thanks as well.
Thanks a lot for telling people anout ELTpics and for linking to my blog.
You are so welcome! You guys are providing a great service for educators. I’m going to start sending more photos your way and I’ll also spread the word. I found your blog post to be clear as to the Attribution-NonCommercial permissions. So many educators and students are confused by this.
