Week 5 Thing #10 v2 - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more
Created on Image Chef

Of the several image generators that I tried, I really liked Image Chef and Hetemeel the best. All of them were easy to use though, and easy to post into my blog. As far as using these with students, I'm fairly certain that they will be blocked by our filter at school. If they're not, I think students would have fun creating cartoons/signs, etc. The big problem will be copyright for comic strip characters or images of celebrities though--we must keep good judgement about copyright in mind--fair use or not!

Some of the generators allow users to upload their own photos though--this would be fun and less of a copyright worry.

Aren't image generators fun? How will you use them to welcome your teachers and students back to school in the fall? Any Library PR plans? Will you promote Freedom to Read Week/Banned Books Week? or Library Card Sign-up week?

Keep thinking of curriculum connections and share them with your fellow librarian bloggers.
