How could the application be used within an educational/learning situation?

This document discusses BubbleShare's ability to tell stories digitally. It gives a really good step-by-step guide to using BubbleShare for teachers and students. 
"Digital Storytelling combines the art of telling stores with available multimedia tools, including graphics, audio, video animation, and Web publishing. Students can use digital stories to give voice to their viewpoints, perspectives and experiences. They also provide a way for students to demonstrate the learning in a curriculum area. This is one way that we can help students move beyond the "bird reports" and move into creating original work that allows them to synthesize their learning."

How could the application be used within an educational/learning situation?

I found a Romanian website that encourages teachers to take advantage of BubbleShare and Flikr "to create educational resources." I think it's pretty cool that teachers all over the world have access to the same technology to use in the classroom. This opens up a possibility to quickly and easily compare classrooms all over the world. It would be interesting for students to see what their school days would look like if they lived thousands of miles across the world. Students could have a photo "pen pal" thousands of miles away that he or she could communicate using BubbleShare. Companies with multiple branches could also use this technology to visually compare sites in seconds.

How could the application be used within an educational/learning situation?

It really seems like BubbleShare could be used in the classroom. Because it is free and easy to use, teachers and students at all levels can take advantage of what BubbleShare has to offer. Communication between teachers and parents is vital to student success. BubbleShare provides a place for teachers to upload photos of classroom activities to showcase student work. I think younger students especially would get excited about seeing themselves and their work online. This also seems like it would encourage students and their parents to communicate about what is going on at school.

I would've never thought you could use BubbleShare for this! One way is to create digital stories. Digital sotry telling is just how it sounds, a sotry that is told digitally. You can create a sotry about the topic you're wanting to teach. There are already stories on BubbleShare...some of my favorites are teaching youth soccer about foul play and the other is going through the cycle of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly. It's pretty interesting how the teachers put it together.

Another way to to teach kids different colors and apply that to pictures. Like the 'color and number' pictures. Where you had a certain color per number, one of the examples I've seen shows each color and different pictures that kids see everyday so they can relate the color to the number. Then on that same album, they creater incoperated basic math problems, and taught those to the class. It's crazy what you can do with just a few pictures and putting them together on a slideshow!

Another thing that BubbleShare lets you do is put up pics and create a slide show that allows teachers to use as a lesson plan. For example, one of the videos I watched was that a teacher had put together pictures of different websites that had to do with science and go through the entire lesson plan using Bubbleshare. It was actually quite interesting how she arranged the pics to flow perfectly, and make since.

How could the application be used within an educational/learning situation?

BubbleShare has many different educational applications. It can be used for a variety of different classes in a variety of different ways. BubbleShare's use of many unique features allows teachers to integrate this program into their class room. BubbleShare allows you to tell a story or "narrate" for your slide show. This gives the teachers and opportunity for a class project to really apply what they have learned to narrate their project. Here are a few ways projects can be used.

- A foreign language teacher assigns students to take pictures of their morning routine. Then set the pictures up in a slide show. After the slideshow is setup the students must then narrate their routine their routine.

- A biology teacher assigns students the task of creating a slide show of different animals. They label all of the different types using the comic boxes feature. Also have them list where they are commonly found throughout their area

- A physical education teacher assigns students the task of creating a new game. They are required to take pictures of the game and create "How to Guide" to play the game. They will use the many features on BubbleShare to depict how the game is setup and properly played. 

BubbleShare is also very easy to use. This helps the teacher easily setup their students with accounts. All the student needs is an e-mail address. A few of the appilications may require more technology but it will not be hard for someone who has had some form of computer experience. Many students already share photos whlie tagging people and giving descritions on websites like facebook.com and flickr.com. Also, unlike Flickr, BubbleShare is very simple to use and you have no upload rescrictions.

BubbleShare allows teachers and students many oppurtunities for educational uses through photosharing. Teachers can now prepare project and have the students easily upload their projects to this site. Also, BubbleShare can allow the teacher to give lessons in a unique and fun way. BubbleShare is one great program that can easily be incorporated into the classroom. It is fun and really easy. Teachers and students should take advantage of what BubbleShare offers.
