#eltpics is, essentially, a collection of thousands of photographs taken by people who work in the field of teaching – primarily ELT.
These photos are, in turn, available free from copyright for non-commercial use by teachers.
The collaborative project began life in October 2010 after Victoria Boobyer (at that time a teacher in Vietnam), Carol Goodey (an adult ESOL & Literacies worker in Scotland) and Vicky Loras (a teacher in Switzerland) became friends on twitter. They were aware of the differences in their everyday lives and thought it would be interesting to share photos taken during a particular week.
Over an evening of chatting this morphed into #eltpics.
Anyone is more that welcome join in at any time and send a tweet with the URL of a photograph and the #eltpics hashtag.
The curators follow the Facebook group and the twitter hashtag stream and then upload these photos to our #eltpics photo-sharing flickr site.
