If you need to rapidly add some notes, text, highlights or arrows to a screenshot or a photo, there is no better and easier free tool that I know of than Evernote Skitch.


The newly released version 2.5 introduces full PDF annotation capabilities, and a great set of superuseful "visual stamps", that further enhance Skitch fast and elegant markup capabilities. 


At its core Skitch is a super-handy image capture and editing utility that allows you to resize, crop, and add unique annotations and highlights to any image while allowing you to save and export in all major image file formats.


Skitch fully integrates with Evernote allowing you to automatically save all of your annotated images into one or more dedicated "notebooks".


Free to download and use.

Bilingual children have a better “working memory” than monolingual children

Bilingual children have a better “working memory” than monolingual children | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

A study conducted at the University of Granada and the University of York in Toronto, Canada, has revealed that bilingual children develop a better working memory –which holds, processes and updates information over short periods of time– than monolingual children. The working memory plays a major role in the execution of a wide range of activities, such as mental calculation (since we have to remember numbers and operate with them) or reading comprehension (given that it requires associating the successive concepts in a text).

The objective of this study –which was published in the last issue of the Journal of Experimental Child Psychology– was examining how multilingualism influences the development of the “working memory” and investigating the association between the working memory and the cognitive superiority of bilingual people found in previous studies.

Is the Internet making us dumber? (Nope, just different)

Is the Internet making us dumber? (Nope, just different) | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

In Ger­many, scores increase by about 3 IQ points each decade. In fact, the tests have to be adjusted every few years to keep up.  The aston­ish­ing upward trend in IQ lev­els is known as the “Flynn effect,” named after Amer­i­can polit­i­cal sci­en­tist James Flynn…

Devel­op­ing coun­tries such as Kenya are also mak­ing gains. Saudi Ara­bia, on the other hand, is mak­ing less progress — Flynn sur­mises this is because being sub­si­dized by petrodol­lars pro­vides lit­tle moti­va­tion for learning…

The fact that peo­ple are scor­ing pro­gres­sively bet­ter on IQ tests, Flynn says, doesn’t rep­re­sent bet­ter cog­ni­tive skills so much as it expresses a mod­ern, sci­en­tif­i­cally influ­enced way of think­ing that can bet­ter take hypo­thet­i­cal and abstract sit­u­a­tions into account…

Robin Good's curator insight, February 3, 2013 12:17 PM


If you want to know what characterizes the new PowerPoint 2013 from the version you have been using unitl now, here is all you need to know.


Key new features you should be aware of:


  • Wide-screen friendly  There’s a 16:9 layout, and new themes designed to take advantage of widescreen possibilities.

  • Start an online meeting from within PowerPoint   Send out a link to the slides, or start a full-on Lync meeting that displays the deck with audio and IM. Your audience can join you from anywhere, on any device using Lync or the Office Presentation Service.

  • Improved audio and video   PowerPoint now supports more multimedia formats, such as .mp4 and .mov with H.264 video and Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) audio, and more high-definition content. PowerPoint 2013 includes more built-in codecs so you don’t have to install them for certain file formats to work.

  • Touch device support 

    Now it’s possible to interact with PowerPoint on most any device including a Windows 8 PC. Using typical touch gestures, you can swipe, tap, scroll, zoom, and pan your way through your slides, and really feel the presentation.

  • Share & Save to the cloud   Save your Office files to your own SkyDrive or to your organization’s site. From there you can access and share your PowerPoint presentations and other Office files. You can even work together with your colleagues on the same file at the same time.


  • Use Presenter View on one monitor       Presenter View no longer requires multiple monitors. Now you can rehearse in Presenter View without hooking up anything else.

  • Zoom in on a slide    Click the magnifying glass to zoom in on charts, diagrams, or whatever you want to emphasize for your audience.

  • Theme variations   Themes now come with a set of variations, like different color palettes and font families. And, PowerPoint 2013 provides new widescreen themes along with standard sizes. Choose a theme and variant from the start screen or from the Design tab.

  • Jump to a slide    Use Slide Navigator to browse to other slides in the presentation.

  • Automatic set up    PowerPoint can automatically sense your computer setup and choose the right monitor for Presenter view.

Leadership Means Climbing The Mountain » Just Coach It-The 3Q Edge | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

Lead Forward! The call to climb the mountain has never been greater. If you listen, you will hear it.

 

Leadership is a trek around foggy corners,bluffs and terrain that challenges us beyond our wildest imagination; leading us where most people fear to tread. On good days, we move upward, forward and onward to new challenges, heights and accomplishments.

 

On bad days, we may slip, fall, lose our balance and tumble backward.  On all days, leadership means learning, re-learning and failing forward with faith, hope, courage, integrity and humanity.  

 

===> It means leading forward. <===

Teaching Empathy: hey, that's networked leadership!

Teaching Empathy: hey, that's networked leadership! | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

 

As I read this article on Forbes tonight, Teaching Empathy: The Ancient Way Is Now Cutting-Edge it struck me that the four things they suggest we teach for empathy also represent network leadership.

 

- Teach listening as a core skill and expect it as a cultural practice. 

 

- Start by being an active listener yourself and give people the time they need to reflect.

 

- Time not made for someone is time wasted.Make dialogue a primary team, group or classroom practice. 

 

- Dialogue opens the doors to exploration—what Peter Senge in his guide “The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook” calls “skillful discussion,” where thoughtful decisions can be made that honor all participants (or, in business, stakeholders).

 

- Identify roles, not organizational charts. When people are able to articulate their role, what they need to be successful and what gets in the way of their success, an empathic understanding is present and the beginnings of a healthy team, class or group takes shape.

 

- Lead with consistency, authenticity and honesty.

 

- Be clear as to why you are doing what you are doing.

 

- Do not lead or manage through personality but rather through articulation. To articulate is to clarify.
