The cameras most of us have with us most of the time are our smartphones. While modifying a photography unit I decided that I should add some helpful resources for working with smartphone photography.


Each of these videos provides useful ideas for taking photos with smartphones.

Can we talk about smartphone photography without discussing apps? I think these recommendations are worth reviewing.

Of course, I want to include some ideas about using photography in the classroom.

  • Using Flickr in the Classroom
    • Have students curate a gallery
    • Access Flickr's special collections
    • Photos taken on phones can be emailed to Flickr using Flickr mail

Pinterest has some good resources for using cameras in the classroom.

The photography apps I am currently using are the following ones.

on my smartphone... 
on my computer...

What would you suggest that I share with teachers about photography and about cameras in the classroom?
