The guy who made this, David McCandless, has a great TED talk too. That is useful for helping students understand the importance of visual aids in presentations.

An interesting and what looks like a very useful tool to allow a teacher to take a quick photo of student work and project it- the tools do far more than just sync a photo (as would be done in a tool like Evernote.)

Here is a link to give you an idea of how cool the program is. This morning, my daughter had a book with a picture of a horse and said she had to remember the parts- I shot a photo with my phone and uploaded this directly to my dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ltfcoqc3a9wu7tb/horse_anatomy.pdf
