Presentation Description

Morehouse English professor Dr. Sergio Rizzo and librarian Leslie Porter teamed up to create a unique way of integrating library research skills, technolgy skills, visual literacy, and copyright concerns into a semester-long project using the social networking image sharing web site Flickr. Dr. Rizzo and Ms. Porter will describe how they used Flickr as a vehicle for students to share images and have a scholarly dialog with each other, their professor, and a librarian. They will demonstrate the Flickr group they created, share student work, discuss future approaches to the technology as well as the faculty-librarian partnership, and entertain questions.
