Check out Presenter's new improved interface with lots of enhancements and reduced clutter.

Presenter now has a new text editor that uses Google fonts to support different languages, and there are animation and zoom functions to complete your presentation.

Presenter is free and worth to explore.

PowerPoint, Keynote, and Skyrocket can create some great visual aids.  Sadly, many presenters have never been taught the principles of presentation slide design.

Generally, the best answer is NO ANIMATIONS.  And almost never any of the sound effects.  More on this on Monday...

Digital Annotation Tools For Close Reading

Digital Annotation Tools For Close Reading | Sketches and images | Scoop.it

"One of the components of Close Reading is annotation, in which the students read short, complex text adding annotations as they read. Students might circle words or phrases that are powerful, underline those that are confusing, indicate big events or when a character shows strong emotion, and write questions or thoughts. They use metacognitive markers or “Thinking Notes” as a means to move beyond just highlighting..."

Close Reading covers a wide range of materials: poems, news articles, short stories, plays, photos, paintings,  videos and more. This post provides five tools to help students annotate a wide variety of media. They are listed below, More detailed explanations are found in the post.

* Doctopus - this program is great if you use Google Apps (and therefore Google Drive).

* Diigo is a great tool for annoting text and images found online. Drawing tools are also available.

* Markup does not require an account. "It provides tools for drawing, highlighting, adding text, and sharing via a link. It does require the installation of a bookmarklet or the Chrome extension."

* PDFzen is a free tool that works with Google Drive. It will open the following types of files: pdf, doc, docx, xls, xlx, odt and rtf.

* VideoAnt allows you to annotate  videos hosted on YouTube as well as HTML5 and flash videos and works in a number of browsers.

As we begin to prepare our students for new testing the ability to annotate is critical. These tools provide a variety of options that you may want to explore and use in your classroom.

Lee Hall's curator insight, December 13, 2013 12:34 PM

They can use the mark up tools to help show where they got their text based answers, which is another shift in the common core.

Thoughts on Defining Innovation in Education

Thoughts on Defining Innovation in Education | Sketches and images | Scoop.it

"I’ve been doing some thinking about how to best define innovation in education.  I’ve been reading a lot of mission statements lately for schools and districts and keep finding the word “innovative” used, yet little sign of practices in the objectives, tactics and goals to back this up. The tactics  and action plan seem to be oriented towards producing test scores and the practices seem 20th century at best."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 12, 2013 9:57 PM

Nancy White looks at definitions that businesses use to define innovative and then looks at how education defines innovation. Here is one of her statements:

"In education, innovation often results when ideas are applied to satisfy the needs and expectations of the students."

Take the time to click through to the post and read her other statements and then ask yourself 'Am I innovative? Is my classroom innovative? My school?" or "What changes need to be made to make my teaching, my classroom or my school innovative?"
