Corinne Owen's curator insight, March 25, 2014 1:03 AM

This program is brilliant in its simplicity. It allows the user to take any jpeg image and add interactive regions for labels and annotations.

 

From labelling the structure of the Earth to explaining the

water cycle, diagrams make for great learning in the diverse classroom. The use of visuals as a teaching and learning strategy supports both student comprehension, retention and promotes communication.
