How to Make the Most of the World’s Top Photo Feeds in the Classroom | Edudemic

How to Make the Most of the World’s Top Photo Feeds in the Classroom | Edudemic | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
“ From the smartphone Annie Leibovitzes to the Instagram Ansel Adams, it seems that everybody is a photographer these days. This is a fact teachers can and should take advantage of in the classroom – and for many reasons more than to expand the student photo repertoire beyond the selfie (though that is certainly an admirable goal). While a good lesson in photography itself is a fruitful place to start, digital photography can be a launching point for lessons in writing creatively, thinking critically, expanding the student worldview and building empathy that extends far outside the classroom. Let’s take a look at a few of the best photo sites out there today and discuss a number of ways you can make the most of them in your classroom.”

“Michael has a large pile of handwritten notepads that he would like to convert into Microsoft Word documents I have many A4 pads of handwritten notes, which I would like to convert into Microsoft Word documents.”
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:
If you want to take notes by hand but also want to keep the notes digitally, be warned, you may have limited success with OCR software. One Note, my favourite piece of Microsoft software, seems to be the best option to creating digitised, handwritten notes. Kinda defeats the purpose of toting that Moleskin around though.

While this sounds like a good idea, I don't really see what advantages this would bring if they cant download them to the device as well. The Scoop says it only works when students are in close proximity, so what is the difference between looking at your screen or looking at their own?  And how would I know they were looking at the slides, and not Facebook? Interested in thoughts from this group.....?
