Flickr for Location-based Learning

29 09 2006

The recent addition of geotagging (the ability to add geographic location data to each photo you upload) in Flickr may enable Flickr to be used for situated, location-based, socially connected mobile learning approaches.

The Flickr maps support display of individual accounts, Flickr groups, particular dates, or even custom filters; or alternatively, a learner might choose to zoom in on a particular area to explore the all of the images associated with a particular place.

If you’d like to try it out, why not join and contribute to our “mlearning” Flickr group, then add geotags to your images and view them on the mlearning Flickr map!
