Playing with images: Bookr

Posted by CRISTINA CABAL DIAZ under Resources, Word of the Day
Playing? Working? Teaching?Let’s not beat about the bush and call a spade a spade …yes , I am playing , playing with images . It is my firm conviction that when you see something you remember it better. That’s why , once again,  I have used the same tool I used when teaching Food and Cooking : PimPamPum . This is a version  called Bookr , and as its name suggests it creates photobooks  using Flikr images. The photobooks are very simple to create, you just need to type in a key word to find the images you want and then drag them onto the pages and add what you need to be taught and illustrated.
I think this a nice way to teach parts of the animals and I’ve also added  some idioms containing animals that need to be studied. The pity with Wordpress is that it doesn’t allow  “embedding”, so the only way for you to see it would be by clicking on “animals by Cristina” or on the picture.
