Explain Everything is just the ticket for those of us who endeavor to be the "guide on the side"... Students can repeat the explanations as many times as needed.  

Dico Krommenhoek's curator insight, December 12, 2012 4:15 PM

Writing with Images in the Digital Age

Writing with Images in the Digital Age | Digital tools for education | Scoop.it

If we want to help our students become effective communicators, that is, effective users and producers of image-texts, we need to understand these media from the inside out and become better users and producers ourselves.
