I’ve run into a last minute snag with my book that I hope someone out there can help with. I wanted to show an example of Flickr’s use of the annotation tool, but I haven’t been able to secure permission for the screen shot I used. (You have to be logged in to see the annotations.) Anyone else have any similar examples of Flickr being used in this way in the classroom?

Hi Will Richardson
I can’t offer you an art example, but we use the Flickr annotation tool at CVU Sonderjylland (a Danish University College).
My colleague, Helen and I use the tool as one of many ways to knit our “learning landscape” together: We use the annotation tool to link Flickr, blogs and delicious bookmarks.
You’re most welcome to use our photos as examples; they are in Flickr under a Creative Commons License:
PS. I really enjoy reading weblogg-ed.

Here is an example from a 3rd grade student.
I came across this example on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mjagbayani/sets/895629/.

I see from the responses here that you really don’t need to know this too, but here it is anyway – I followed the link for your screen shot, and did see all the comments, annotations, etc. for the picture on Flickr, without being logged in. Then I logged in, and (once I found the right copy of the pic) saw the same page, with same annotations, etc. Interesting. Thanks for the ideas, though. I hadn’t thought of using Flickr so completely as a visual blog space for a class. The ideas just keep coming, and possibilities exploding!

Recently we did some work with memory maps in flickr. This might be of help.
Your question brought such a nice response already! You should have more problems like this.
