Thing 8 calls for us to explore different "mashups". A mashup is a hybrid web app that uses features from photo sharing sites and mashes it up with another site. Using a website called Spell With Flickr I spelled out a word and it showed me that word using images from Flickr. This site could be used for an online scavenger hunt, where the teacher would choose a certain word and have the students research the images that come up for that word and report on their findings. Since most of the letter are different every time each student would more than likely find something different than their classmates. I think that online photo sharing is great way to share inspiring images with the world. However, there is a lot to be said about caution in uploading pictures of yourself and your loved ones. Always be sure to check what is in the background of the images and only upload something that you would not mind sharing with the world, keep in mind, that is what you are doing.
