Not exactly about technology, but I need some summer reading recommendations and it has an awesome infographic/flow chart that I just can't resist!

 

Source is http://teach.com/great-educational-resources/summer-reading-flowchart, who notes, "To help encourage high school students to find a book of their choice, we’ve compiled a list of 101 books to kick off your learners’ summer reading. Interested in finding fiction vs. non-fiction books? Would you like to find classical or contemporary fiction? Intrigued by survival books? Tales of war? We have them all and many more to choose from! Follow our chart of top picks and peruse the different categories until you find something that’s a perfect fit!"

Where in the Library is Carmen Sandiego?: An Interactive Library Mystery Game | Lafayette College Library · Lafayette College | More TechBits | Scoop.it

Neat idea for a QR code program!

 

"Lafayette’s team of stellar librarians (the PRA Team) fingered Carmen using an array of library tools. Now you need to find the secret location where Carmen stashed the sword before she has time to move it again. Luckily, Carmen left clues for her henchman about the sword’s whereabouts. Your task is simple: pursue Carmen’s trail by visiting stations located throughout the library. By enlisting the help of librarians at each station, you will be given clues that will lead you to the Marquis’ sword. Along the way, you may just learn some useful tips about using the libraries."

Thanks to "photo spheres" and Google Maps you can now create your own "street view" of any place on earth.


To do so you must first shoort "photo spheres" with a dedicated app for your Android smartphone or through your DLSR camera


"Creating Street View from your photo spheres is as easy as connecting the dots into what looks like a “constellation” of stars."


You can even connect your photo spheres to our Google's own Street View panoramas.

Fotor is a great web-based image editor that is particularly talented at creating photo-montages, image strips and boards, photo cards and other similar image compositions.


The beauty of it is that Fotor connects directly to your Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, Instagram photo accounts, giving you the opportunity to easily find, drag and position your ideal images on the canvas. You can also upload images from your computer and easily crop, rotate or resize it.


Fotor also allows to overlay and position any text messages on your final composition allowin you to create those effective "social flags" for your online fans.


Fotor saves in JPG or PNG format and can post or upload directly your compositions to anyone of your connected social media accounts.


My comment: Excellent image editor for creating image compositions and photo montages. Lots of features and options. Easy to use.


Free to use.
