Bart van Maanen's curator insight, May 6, 2014 6:44 AM

Soms wil je een voorwerp uit een foto of afbeelding losmaken van de achtergrond, bijvoorbeeld voor je webwinkel. Als je nu geen Photoshop tot je beschikking hebt, is Background Burner een leuk en bruikbaar alternatief.

 

Selecteer of sleep een afbeelding naar het scherm en laat het programma zijn werk doen. Je kunt daarna de meest geschikte uitzoeken en eventueel nog bijwerken en een andere achtergrond kiezen.

This makes me realize how important it is that all children have access to preschool, field trips and after school programs.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 28, 4:32 PM

Our students of poverty enter school behind and by the time they are in middle school, the achievement gap has widened.  Often the answer is to remove the struggling students from electives and place them in remediation courses for math or reading, robbing them of the rich contribution arts makes to the lives of middle and upper class children. Innovation must guide our efforts to close the gap, providing not just remediation but enrichment to our children of poverty.

One part of the message is relevancy first so that students can hook the new knowledge to their personal pre-existing framework. This not only speaks to  adult learners with varying backgrounds, but also for a diverse classroom  of students with various needs and differing strengths. Solution: create a brief background statement to "on ramp" students whether they recognize, remember, or have no recall of the material. Then provide a reason for them to want to learn about it  and show them how to use it. As put here: the why and how to apply.
