Explains the rise in use of infographics to manage large quantities of data. But I have to ask: are we visual learners by nature or have we become visual learners because of emerging technologies?

Peer editing in digital and mobile environments

Peer editing in digital and mobile environments | Digital Storytelling Tools, Apps and Ideas | Scoop.it

For years now I have been happily using EtherPad based services like http://primarypad.com/ and http://sync.in/ to get participants on the training courses I deliver to work collaboratively to create and peer edit texts. Increasingly though I've been having problems with the reliability of the free services these companies provide and the lack of reliable compatibility with mobile devices.

This is a useful picture editor with a few more features than Instagram. Great for creating collages on displaying class projects. Works well on iPad too with good quality display. The free basic editor is good, but you have to buy premium packs for some of the more complex designs.
