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 | Communication design |
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.

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

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.

ScreenFlow is my favourite screencasting software tool and the one that I use to make all the video tutorials for my Tech Tools for Teachers series on OneStopEnglish and for the award winning Blended Learning in ELT course I designed for Bell. I'm now using it to create iPad tutorials and it works really well.
