Photo of the Day - Google Presentation and Wikis or Blogs

Andrew wanted to showcase his students 'Photos of the Day'. He thought about just uploading the photos to a wikipage. I suggested he created a Google Presentation, embed it on the Wiki with a link.
So when the students upload their photos to the Google presentation they will be updated on the Class wiki.
