Well, since I have posted my pictures online, I began to wonder about educational purpose. Unfortunately, I have only come up with a few.
One use would be to document what is happening in the classroom for students and parents or to have the students colaborate on images that support what we are learning in class. These would be the most beneficial ways to use a photo sharing site, although I am still worried about misuses of images.
I can see many parents being concerned about a site with their students images on it. It would be difficult to assure them that none of the images would be misused. So there is some difficulty in using this site for educational purposes. I am not saying that it cannot be done, I am just saying that there are many things to keep in mind when using this type of site. The rules for it would outweigh the benefits of using it.
