[Lesson 2: Learn & Do! - Directions for Image Creation]
Creating a profile image / picture for use with your Edmodo account.
Remember, for this training, you must create your own image, but students can just use one of Edmodo's preloaded images! To do that, when they get to the browse to image step in the Lesson 2 directions, they'll just click one of Edmodo's images instead of browsing to find their own!
Creating Personal Images - Your Options (in order from easiest to hardest):
(1) Take a picture with your phone and email it to yourself; then log in to your email on the computer and download the picture to an easy place to find, like the Desktop or Pictures folder.
(2) Have someone else take your picture with their phone and repeat the process above. Everyone knows someone with a smart phone!
(3) Locate a picture online of something that reflects your interests, beliefs, educational philosophy and right-click on / "Save Image As" to an easy to find location, like the Desktop or Pictures folder. Make sure the image is not protected! Creative Commons is a great for finding images you can use without breaking copyright law.
(4) Create your own image using one of the many great Web 2.0 tools out there for image creation. Here's a link to my collection but be warned, all these options can be overwhelming! Be sure to return to your Edmodo training!
When you're done troubleshooting, be sure to return to Lesson 2.
