Learn to Flickr

803937188_0af108cd0a_m.jpgWillard Staff: If you are not able to participate in one of the Flickr workshops this month, or would rather learn on your own timetable, you are in luck. The Fusion: Flickr webpage offers a handout and short video tutorials (screencasts) to lead you through the steps of using Flickr in your classroom.

And, there’s more! If you want to earn 3 Salary Advancement Workshop hours while you flickr, you can enroll in the free, online professional development, Moodle course: Flickr. This course uses the handout and screencasts on the Fusion webpage to lead you through the steps. Work at your own pace, when it fits in your schedule, from any computer with Internet access. Just in time learning, at your convenience!
