It may be that sharing in Image Viewer is broken. However, I have
tested sharing in View Slides and that works. What you might do is
1). Have the teacher download View Slides from ASLO, which will
install it in her Journal.
2). If the pictures are already in her Journal she can use the
"Slides" tab of View Slides to add these images from the Journal into
a slide show. The pictures on ASLO shows how this works. She might
rename the pictures to get them into sequence, which she can also do
with View Slides.
3). The teacher can then share the slide show with the neighborhood.
4). The kids have to download View Slides from ASLO to the Journal.
5). They can then go to the Neighborhood and accept the invitation to
Join her Activity. The slide show will be sent to them and they can
navigate through it to see the pictures. I've never tested a whole
classroom downloading a slide show but it works well enough one to
If it was me I'd have the teacher prepare the slide show before the
class begins and also get familiar with how View Slides works. It
isn't a complicated thing to learn IMHO but in my experience all kinds
of things go wrong when you demo to an audience. I've found many a
bug demoing stuff to my own mother.
One nice thing about View Slides is that all the images are in one
Journal entry, which should simplify giving the pictures to everyone.
Good luck with this,
