Putting My Pics In Order

When I got my first digital camera years ago, it was revolutionary. I mean no more film to buy or constantly running to the One Hour Photo Lab. I can’t count the number of disposable cameras I went through over the years. I love being able to save all these pictures and do some fun editing so we all look fabulous. But here is the problem.. before you know it you have thousands of pictures with no actual copies to look at. We have to run to the computer, digital photo frame, blogs, Facebook, etc. to see them.

I have never really gotten into the scrapbooking thing either. All that cutting and pasting has kept me away. However, I do LOVE online scrapbooking. I enjoy choosing my favorite pics, dragging and dropping them onto amazing backgrounds and personalizing the whole thing to share.

So, I got to thinking this last week that I haven’t done anything with some of my favorite pictures over the last say, 6 years. Yikes! So I made a goal to make a book for each of those years and special vacations and events. Not only would I create them online, but I would have the books printed so I finally have an actual copy of the images to hold and cherish. I am proud to say, I am on track with my goal! I have created 2 books in 3 days. I have them ordered and am eagerly waiting to receive the finished products.

I went back to two sites I have used in the classroom.. Shutterfly and MixBook. What a blast! I feel not only proud for completing my tasks, but relaxed because the process was so enjoyable. If you have pictures in limbo or need a stress reliever.. try online scrapbooking! Be warned.. it is addictive!

#personlizedlearning starts with voice and choice. A PBL is a great start. To get started, consider @drlorielliott book #pblanywhere that lays out how to go from standards to a PBL.

Excited to share my new PBL online course with you! Thanks @dbc_inc for this opportunity!

Our community unit came to life! We brainstormed wants & needs, planned, & created a community we would like to live in. This year we decided to take our plans to City Hall to share with the people in charge! @isd544otters @teacher2teacher @drlorielliott @DitchThatTxtbk

A short and sweet sesh on #PBL by @drlorielliott hosted by @dbc_inc with @burgessdave and @TaraMartinEDU It's validating to hear that so many others are taking #PBL and #inquiry and running with it!
