Instead ofkeeping our photographs and videos on a shelf, it is now possible to share these visualrepresentations with a variety of individuals and groups online. Photo sharing websites not onlyserve as storage spaces for pictures, they also provide us with an arena to organize, tag, share,comment, create, and enhance the learning experience. Advisors are able to engage studentswith collaborative photo sharing by displaying visual information, linking academic resources,connecting to various learning styles, and engaging in group-based advising.Say Cheese!How can you use photo sharing in advising?Photo Sharing: Say Cheese for Academic Advising Presentation, NACADA TechnologySeminar 2009 http://www.slideshare.net/LauraPasquini/photo-sharing-in-advisingPhoto Sharing Articles & Websites●7 Things You Should know about Flickr: http://connect.educause.edu/Library/ELI/7ThingsYouShouldKnowAbout/46186●Institution vs. Collboration TED Talk:http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/clay_shirky_on_institutions_versus_collaboration.html●The Web Photo Site Faceoffhttp://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/web_photo_sharing_faceoff.php●Metadata Goes Mainstream http://www.allegrotechindexing.com/metadata.pdfPhoto Sharing Websites:http://www.flickr.com/http://picasa.google.com/
