Imagine having your students combine images from flickr.com, their own creativity, and a tool like Slide.com to create their own visual poetry? (From the previous link, click on “original view” to enlarge the view and begin the show.)
Flickr has an amazing wealth of photos in the Creative Commons area under the keyword “poetry” to begin with. Or perhaps students could take photographs of words themselves, and make found poems to create their visual poetry.
April is a time to think beyond our own walled gardens. Happy Poetry month!
