Best Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures

Best  Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Creating tutorials and explanatory guides is best done through the help of screenshots. These are pictures we take of our screens to share with others or include in a visual demonstration of how, for example, a process works. As teachers and educators we often find ourselves in need of such visual annotations and cues to enhance our students comprehensibility. There are several web tools that we can use to create screenshots and we have already reviewed some of them in past publications here. Today, we are introducing you to what we consider to be the best 4 web tools for creating screenshots. Besides being free, these tools are very simple to use and are also student friendly. They will allow you to  capture your screen, crop and annotate your pictures using  arrows, colours, shapes, text and many more.

Four apps for annotating screenshots are discussed here. I like Snagit, where it is possible to save annotated screenshots to one's Google drive.

flea palmer's curator insight, February 3, 2015 5:38 AM

These all look good - much easier than using a combination of tools! Remember copyright though!

A List of Brain-based Strategies to Create Effective eLearning

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 2, 2014 10:53 PM

Perhaps with school starting up again, I am more aware of the number of posts that look at metacognition, and how our brains learn. This post from SH!FT provides the acronym B.R.A.I.N. B.A.S.E.D to help you remember key components of designing a course. Although the post is designed for eLearning the same concepts are also important in a face-2-face environment.

Let's look at the B in brain. It stands for the "brain's time clock." How long can students engage in active learning vs. passive learning? How long can a student online stay engaged (or a student in your classroom)? For each letter there is an explanation and in most cases links to additional resources.

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

t id"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."

10 New Ways Twitter Is Changing The College Lecture

10 New Ways Twitter Is Changing The College Lecture | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Continuing our theme of using Twitter in education this week, we bring you a look at the ways Twitter is causing the current lecture model to evolve. The following analysis is brought to you by our content partners over at Online Universities.

 

Gone is the time when PowerPoint was the most impressive communication technology in the lecture hall. These days, students and professors enjoy the power of Twitter, a tool that allows for digital discussions to supplement and even guide lecture sessions. So how exactly is Twitter changing the college lecture as we know it?

 

Read on to find out about 10 different ways.

 

- Mobile devices are welcome in the lecture hall once again

- Lectures become a conversation

- Bashful students are speaking up

- More students get connected in large lectures

- Students stay engaged beyond the lecture

- Dorm discussions don’t happen as much anymore, and that’s OK

- There’s more information saved now than ever before

- Students think about lectures even when they’re not at school

- Review sessions happen anywhere

- Fewer classroom disruptions exist

I think MOOCs have yet to find their place; I think their value is still evolving. Not too long ago I read about lifelong learning being the 5th most critical skill for 2025. As stacked credentials and digital badges come into their own, I think MOOCs will do the same for on-going learning, for trans- and interdisciplinary learning we're going to see increasingly important throughout our global economy.

Designing for Emergence: The Role of the Instructor in Student-Centered Learning

Designing for Emergence: The Role of the Instructor in Student-Centered Learning | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

I believe in student-centered learning, and I believe there is huge potential for this kind of learning to occur in online environments. But the instructor is a key element of that learning, and we need to talk more explicitly about what her role is and the specific ways she negotiates and leverages her authority, guidance, and presence to design learning environments in which emergence is possible.

Low-risk, nonthreatening learning environment Challenging, real-life, authentic assessments Rhythms, patterns, and cycles Appropriate chunking or grouping Learning as orchestration rather than lecture or facilitation Appropriate level of novelty Appropriately timed breaks and learning periods Purposeful assessments Learning that addresses visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners Active processing with mental models The use of universal examples, analogies, and parallel processing
