Welcome to Modern Educator

Here on this blog I hope to get a conversation going amongst students, teachers, administrators, and parents about who, what, when, why, and where we should teach technology skills for the 21st century. I am technology teacher at Truckee High School in Truckee, CA and currently teach classes like digital media, e-learning, applications, and keyboarding -- yes...still important! :) Please Join the Conversation!

SmugMug - Professionally Market & Sell Digital Pictures

Several individuals I know use SmugMug http://www.smugmug.com/ to host their digital photos.  This web site will allow you to sell your pictures online for a fee.  People can browse through your albums and select the prints they want to add to their carts for purchase.  They offer professional printing services and the photos are sent to the buyers address.  They can purchase them securely with a credit card and the profits are added to the sellers account.

The site also allows users to share photos on many different social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and others which will assist photographers in building their customer/fan base.  Sites like SmugMug are cool tools that professional and amateur photographers alike can use to build their portfolios and careers.

Here is the link to a local photographer, Lefrak Photography, who captured images from our high school graduation last weekend and shared the images with all for free.  Thank you!
