    I am wondering if anyone knows of a safe/private way to instantly upload or share classroom photos with parents. I have an ipad in my room and would love the capability of sending out pictures of happenings throughout the day. I usually include a picture or two in my newsletter but I would like to be able to share more (easily and quickly!) In my mind I am thinking of something along the lines of a private Twitter, if such thing even exists.

    Any suggestions? :thanks:

    Could you create a facebook group that is private? There should be a way that you can upload pictures directly from the iPad to facebook rather quickly (I know the classroom I'm about to do a LTS job in is doing something very similar for all the classes)
    This could also allow for easy to follow comments. Twitter just seems harder to follow IMO, especially for this purpose.

    I use a shutterfly site. It is private and you can upload photos to share.

    I have a shutterfly site. Only invited people can access it.
    There is an app, so you can upload photos directly really easily.

    I agree with photo stream. Already on your iPad or iPhone

    Agree on Shutter fly, and the good thing there is you can create a different site each year, and they are all separate. My daughters soccer and softball teams over the years have always been on shutter fly and it's fun to go back and check them out...

    WOW! No advice, I am just so impressed that you have time to do this during the school day! I barely have time to go to the bathroom! I didn't even get to eat my lunch today! Keep it up!

    Haha some days I don't either! But I love taking pictures of my kids learning and it's so easy with an ipad to shoot a picture to facebook or whatever with one click. If it is any more complicated then that I wouldn't have time for it! :woot:
