University Presses & Libraries Turn to Pinterest to Promote Books

University Presses & Libraries Turn to Pinterest to Promote Books | all things teacher librarian | Scoop.it
I’ll admit it: I’m not a big Pinterest user. Until very recently I thought the social networking site was a bit twee—too much about cute clothes and crafts, not enough about ideas.

Turns out the web's 15th largest site has a lot more to offer.

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | all things teacher librarian | Scoop.it
Creating tutorials and explanatory guides is best done through the help of screenshots. These are pictures we take of our screens to share with others or include in a visual demonstration of how, for example, a process works. As teachers and educators we often find ourselves in need of such visual annotations and cues to enhance our students comprehensibility. There are several web tools that we can use to create screenshots and we have already reviewed some of them in past publications here. Today, we are introducing you to what we consider to be the best 4 web tools for creating screenshots. Besides being free, these tools are very simple to use and are also student friendly. They will allow you to  capture your screen, crop and annotate your pictures using  arrows, colours, shapes, text and many more.

Mayra.Loves.Books's curator insight, January 31, 11:48 AM

Four apps for annotating screenshots are discussed here. I like Snagit, where it is possible to save annotated screenshots to one's Google drive.

flea palmer's curator insight, February 3, 5:38 AM

These all look good - much easier than using a combination of tools! Remember copyright though!

Para capturas sobre páginas web (além de edição e anotações sobre as capturas) a extensão Fireshot (browsers Chrome e Firefox) é, para já, imbatível.

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | all things teacher librarian | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."
