I love the suggestions in this article to build close-reading skills among students using visual images. This goes beyond the story starter idea!

The suggestions in this article on how to teach students to read images were really helpful.

As students buy fewer textbooks and utilize more e-books provided by institution purchase, such as PharmacyAccess, this needs to be kept in mind.  Do we need to provide paper handouts of the key points? Should students take notes or create mind-maps of the key points to help further reinforce what they are reading electronically? There is also new studies highlighting the importance of note taking. Faculty may need to develop new approaches to achieve the deeper learning desired in our electronic device world.

OneNote now on Mac, free everywhere, and service powered | Office Blogs | Information literacy | Scoop.it

When we started OneNote we set out to revolutionize the way people capture, annotate, and recall all the ideas, thoughts, snippets and plans in their life. As many of you have attested, OneNote is the ultimate extension for your brain, but it’s not complete if it’s not instantly available everywhere. We’ve already made a lot of progress in that direction with our mobile, tablet and online web experiences. But there was still a gap. People frequently asked us for OneNote on Mac, and for more ways to capture content.

I just take a clip from them and use the 'copy text from picture' button. Helped me organise some of the mess. God sent gift!!!
