Feelings Posters with Student Photos
- Set of Feelings Cards - can be downloaded for free at www.hiyah.net/cards/emotions.pdf
- One Mobile Device with a Camera per group
- Interactive Whiteboard or LCD Projector
Students are introduced to the feelings cards by selecting the cards that matched their feelings at that moment . . .
In small groups, students select 10-15 feelings cards and set up scenarios that represent each of feelings selected. They use their own mobile device to take photos of these images . . .
The photos are directly uploaded to Flickr via an email. Students do not need to have an account on Flickr to do so. The steps to set this up are as follows:
- Set up an account on Flickr - http://www.flickr.com/
- Photos can be emailed directly to this Flickr account. “You can upload photos to Flickr from your camera using your unique email upload address. When you upload photos via email, the subject line is used as the title of your photo, and the body of the email is used as the description” (http://www.flickr.com/help/mobile/)
- Provide students with the email address to send their photos to Flickr along with the instructions to put the name of their emotion n the subject line.
- Since all the group’s images will be sent to this single Flickr account, members can view each other’s images via an account link provided to them, if a virtual classroom, or through the website projected on a screen if in a face-to-face setting.

The uploaded images create a personalized feelings poster. Students can be provided with scenarios and asked to locate on the Interactive White Board which of these displayed images that they created best represented how they would feel in that situation.
