  3. Choose Photos and Images from the Category menu.
  4. Select a tool or resource you would like to explore.
  5. Create an account for the presentation tool that you selected and create an artifact.
  6. Then, either add a photo to your ePortfolio or upload and share a collection of images as a photo album, collage, or slideshow. Use a digital camera or your phone to capture a few images that relate to your interests or your life. You may also use images you have taken in the past.
  7. Reflect on your experience and write a 1 to 2 paragraph reflection and add it to your ePortfolio. Below are a few questions to consider.
    • Do you already share your photographs, and if so, how?
    • What did you know about photo sharing prior to your involvement in #EmTechMOOC?
    • How could you potentially use photos and images within class assignments and activities or within your career?
    • Can you see photo sharing being used in your community and if so, how?
    • Self-reflection questions such as these can also help to guide your reflection.
  8. Embed or link your photo or your creation into your portfolio.
  9. Include a link to the photo tool or resource that you explored into your ePortfolio reflection.
