it's often hard to teach kids photo editing skills when the software is expensive.  These are good solution sosolution so

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, July 21, 7:40 PM

Some great image editor resources.

To help you and your students create your own amazing images, Edublogger has compiled a list of  3  online photo editors. In order to be on the list, each of these tools must meet these three requirements:

  1. It is free to use.
  2. It requires no registration.
  3. It provides educators and students with an intuitive, easy-to-learn photo editing tool.

And the tools are:

* Picadilo

10 Ways to Integrate Mobile Phones in Class

10 Ways to Integrate Mobile Phones in Class | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Phones, tablets, iPads and e-readers… What do these mobile devices have in common? It’s probably a pretty safe bet to say that most students own at least one of them in this day and age. So, instead of continually confiscating these items or telling students to put them away, why not take advantage of the handheld gadget craze and leverage these tools for learning?


Allowing students to utilize their own devices provides them with access to a variety of digital activities, essentially creating a 1:1 environment with a tool they already know how to use.


Furthermore, with many schools experiencing limited budgets, the BYOD concept is one that should be seriously considered. Without devices to complement learning, students are missing out on a modernized education as well as the development of important life skills. Yeah, that means actually having the know how to use technology beyond gaming and social media!

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Flip Your Classroom With eduClipper and PixiClip

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Flip Your Classroom With eduClipper and PixiClip | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

"Teachers interested in trying the flipped classroom model often ask me for recommendations for video creation tools. They also often ask me for ideas on sharing videos without using YouTube. One answer to both of these questions is to useeduClipper.

On the free eduClipper iPad app you can create instructional videos on a whiteboard in the Khan Academy style. You can also use the app to create a video in which you annotate an image or document while talking about it. After creating your video you can save it to an eduClipper board that you have shared with your students through the eduClipper classroom setting. Your students can view the videos on their iPads or in the web browsers on their laptops."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 12, 1:35 PM

The survey really does not tell us much about what teachers think about edtech. It tells us teachers own and use certain tools more than the general adult population. I know people in the general adult population who use the digital tools well and teachers who do, as well. It does not mean all do. It means some do. We interact with a ton of teachers on social media is not a rigorous conclusion driven out of sound quantitative research.
