Using Images

So, we’re a little behind with our Edublogs Challenge work. Week 3’s work is all about images and how to use them correctly in your blog posts. You can’t just use any image you want off the Internet. There are rules for you to follow. This is super important stuff so be sure to read all of Miss W.’s post for Week 3 before you do the activities. You can see I’ve used an image in this post. It’s from Compfight which is a widget available on Edubogs. It’s easy to use because it includes the attribution.

The activities look really fun. You can write about a favorite time with your family, a person who passed away, or interview a grandparent and write about it. Have fun!

About the Author

Hello my name is Karen McKelvey and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Curie Elementary School in San Diego, California. I began teaching at Curie Elementary in 2002. I feel fortunate to be part of such a great community. I love blogging with my students as it provides them with an authentic audience for their work. Collaborative group work and project-based learning are key components of my classroom. I completed my Masters degree in Educational Technology from San Diego State University in 2010. Many of the concepts/pedagogy and technologies I learned about in this program, like learning management systems, Google tools, and blogs are implemented in my classroom. Technology plays a key role in the learning that occurs in our classroom. We don’t learn about technology, we learn with technology. Students are engaged in activities that incorporate writing, research skills, critical and creative thinking skills, and much more on a daily basis.
