School Event Photos & Flickr

I’m a fan of good photographs, and the photos in the slide show below capture some moments from my school’s’ recent Family Fall Festival. These are really good photos!

So, what’s the “techie” story behind sharing these photos here on the blog?

Friend, parent and talented photographer Eric Jensen (who, by the way, provides insightful and helpful hands-on support for our school’s technology program), suggested that we test a feed from the photo sharing site Flikr to create the slide show below. Our main school website is a bit limiting when it comes to uploading, storing, sharing, and displaying photos, hence our little experiement with my classroom blog.  

Thanks Mr. Jensen!

Boo!

Some interesting characters were seen around my school on Friday, October 31. Mr. “Retro Man” Renfroe greeted families during the morning carpool and was seen strutting his stuff throughout the day. The third grade students were nowhere to be seen during their regularly scheduled computer class, while goblins, alter egos, famous personalities, and storybook characters took their place. Who are these people?
