Tech Task #6 (Part 1) – 5 Card Flickr Story


For the first part of my Tech Task, following the presentation by Alann Levine, I decided to try the 5 Card Flickr Story technology. I greatly appreciated the ease of this resource and the endless possibilities that they could serve. I can clearly remember suffering from writer’s block when in English class and this could be a great way to provide a wide variety of writing prompts.

The only issue I can see using this technology is having students not take the assignment seriously. It could be very easy to randomly click photos and not put a considerable amount of thought into what they are creating. Although this could be true with any assignment, it could be especially true here.

With that being said, here are my two stories:

Five Card Story: A Trip Abroad

Last summer, my friends and I took a trip abroad to explore new cultures around the world. Our trip begin with a director taking us on a bus tour.

The tour took us all over the city. We sketched out a rough map to show. I’m sure that there wasn’t a place that we didn’t go to.

Perhaps the best stop was at the old library.

Before we knew it, it was time to leave and we boarded the bus to head back to the hotel.

Our hotel was quite luxurious, full of staircases to get great views of the landscape.

Five Card Story: The Typical University Day

I begin each day with a 30 minute drive through the city to get to the University…

As soon as I arrive I am forced to sit through hours upon hours of lectures…

Usually during these lectures I find myself doodling away…

This is a typical look that you may see on my face…

All I can ever think about is getting outside of the building and get some fresh air!
