Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Spell with Flickr!

January5

Looking for a way to add some style to your next digital or print project? Then check out Spell with Flickr—a nifty web tool that generates a logo based on images of letters and numbers from flickr picture galleries.

Here’s how it works: Visit the Spell with Flickr web site, enter a phrase and within seconds, a pretty neat letter picture title will be rendered. Don’t like the images that are returned? No problem—simply click on each individual image to swap it for another one. Once you’re satisfied, copy the embed code to a web site, wiki and/or blog or drag and drop the letters to the desktop for later use.

Check out the example I created:

Classroom Connection:

In addition to using Spell with Flickr for creating fun titles to enhance digital projects, presentations, reports, poems and the like, this “cool tool” can also be used to create a number of classroom items: bulletin boards, signs, banners, posters and word walls to name a few. Spell with Flickr could also be utilized to practice spelling words and/or to develop all types of books (i.e. alphabet, sight words, etc.).
