For when there's just no time to use the rectangle and text tool I guess. Fun!

Share As Image

Share As Image (previously called Pin A Quote) is a service that allows users to highlight text on the Internet and share it in the form of an image.

 

Available in free and Pro versions, Share As Image is a bookmarklet that can be installed on any browser.

 

The free version is very basic, offering a single font and no choice of colour. The Pro version, on the other hand, provides users with a range of colours as well as font types and sizes.

 

Once created, users can share the image on Pinterest, Facebook or Twitter. 

 

As with most images on the web, a right-click allows viewers to copy and/or save the resulting image.

20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics

20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics | Technology for school | Scoop.it

A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they’d probably  prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic.

 

This post highlights these tools...

- What About Me?

- Vizualize.me;

- Piktochart;

- Easel.ly;

- Visual.ly;

- Infogr.am;

- Many Eyes;

- Venngage;

- iCharts;

- Dipity;

- TimelineJS;

- StatSilk;

- InFoto Free;

- Photo Stats;

- ChartsBin;

- Tableau Public;

- Creately;

- Gliffy;

- SIMILE; 

- Tagxedo;

- Wordle.

 

How do you choose? Know what you want to do then choose the tool that will meet your requirements.

The Physics Classroom

The Physics Classroom is an online interactive tutorial of basic physics concepts. The lessons use an easy-to-understand language to present common physics principles discussed in physics courses.

 

The Physics Classroom provides access to...

- physics tutorials,

- Mind on Physics Internet Modules (1300+ questions designed to improve understanding of common physics topics),

- problem sets for practice,

- multimedia,

- animations (ideal for using on an interactive whiteboard or projector-connected PC)

- activity sheets,

- curriculum corner (pdf downloads),

- labs,

- photos, and more.

 

I suggest practitioners spend time exploring this site before recommending it to learners so they can help them navigate it.

 

There is a danger, because it is so information heavy, the Phusics Classroom could be a turn-off for learners who are just dropping in looking for something specific.
