Documenting the Visual History of SIS
As a result of some members of our community experiencing difficulties accessing our old ShutterFly web gallery within China, we recently we started to self-host our web gallery using ‘Piwigo’. Our new Piwigo web gallery can be access via the SIS Home Page by clicking on the ‘Lights, Camera, Action: SIS Photo and Video Gallery’ link, as shown on the left, or by going directly to the site at http://piwigo.sis.org.cn
Teachers, students and parents all contribute to the collection of memorable moments. As a community we find many uses for the photos. Our students add images to their electronic portfolios as they reflect on their learning and level of participation in community service activities. Pin board displays around the school celebrate recent events.
Photos are used in publications including the Wednesday Weekly, and Mountainside and Bayside yearbooks. The web gallery also serves as a promotional tool for prospective families and staff, showcasing the range of activities that our students are involved in. It is also an excellent way for families back home to see the development of their loved ones and obtain copies to save or print.
