I had a hard time deciding what to do as a project for this assignment. I had my heart set on using another web 2.0 tool but had difficulty with the site. Mixbook is a great tool for making scrapbook type of projects but it doesn’t seem to let you import pictures from a Flickr gallery as was my first plan. (If anyone wants some good Flat Stanley photos you can visit the Flickr galleries, Flat Stanley, and Flat Stanley 2, I made thinking I could import them to Mixbook.) My final product is simple but I think my students will love it!
