Robin Good's curator insight, January 13, 11:16 AM



Placeit is a great web app which makes it extremely easy to create professional high-quality photo-shots of your product, service or web app inserted within pre-designed environments. 


There are already over 550 ready-made setups/environments in which you can integrate any image you upload or reference by URL.


The images you provide are perfectly integrated into the ready-made shots taking into considerations also perspective and angle of the placement. 


Most ready-made environments are based on photographs of smartphones or tablets within different locations.


Finaly composited images can be download for free at a resolution of up to 640x480.


Higher resolutions images are charged according to various monthly plans or by image. 


Pricing info: 


My comment: Great app. Very useful and simple to use. Placeit photo templates and technology makes it super-easy for anyone to create great product shots in seconds and at a fraction of it would cost to creat them in traditional ways. Five stars.

The 5 Most Important Things To Come Out of Educational Summits in 2014 | Edudemic | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

by Leah Levy

 

"Blended learning. Digital literacy. Mobile learning. Game-based learning. When these top educational trends came onto the scene, they sparked a learning revolution. That revolution continued into 2014, but if there was one theme to come out of the top educational summits this year, it was this: smarter use. We take a look at exactly what that means below."

Feeding the Whole World

"Louise Fresco argues that a smart approach to large-scale, industrial farming and food production will feed our planet's incoming population of nine billion. Only foods like (the scorned) supermarket white bread, she says, will nourish on a global scale."

Feed The World ...

dilaycock's curator insight, October 19, 6:45 PM

Fresco argues that we tend to see "home-made" agriculture as a thing of beauty, whereas the reality is that many small scale farmers struggle and live a subsistence lifestyle. The adoration of small-scale farming, notes Fresco, is a luxury to those who can afford it. Large-scale production has increased the availability and affordability of food. Food production should be given as high a priority as climate change and sustainability, and we should seriously consider ways in which land can be used as a multi-purpose space that includes agriculture.
