How To Use Evernote: The Missing Manual

How To Use Evernote: The Missing Manual | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

I knew about the OCR in photos.  I did not know about the OCR .pdf function.  Awesome!

Are you a digital packrat? Are you in need of a searchable repository for everything you want to recall later? Does the idea of automatic OCR (Optical Character Recognition) for all your scanned PDFs get you excited in a way only seriously organised people could ever understand? If so, Evernote is the tool you need right now – and we’ve got the perfect manual to get you started using it like a professional.

Paula King, Ph.D.'s curator insight, January 1, 2013 5:05 PM

Skills needed in 2020 are on the minds of many.  This report captures the important intersection of sense-making, virtual collaboration, trust and advanced media, teaching/learning competencies required.

 

Colleges and University would benefit from thinking through their curricular offerings through the lens offered in this article and also challenge themselves to discover, design and create valid assessment methods that really measure these skills. 

 

Exciting challenges for us in Higher Education.

I am pretty sure as you introduce the idea to your students everyone will want to have a say in their next e-magazine. There is nothing much more rewarding to students then to have a proof of their hard work recognized in a publication of some sort.

 

Most of the tools cited here are easy to use and have user friendly interface and they will let you create your own e-magazine or newspaper in few simple steps. Yet I would recommend your discretion as you use them with your students.

All You Need to Know About Infographics: Tips, Tutorials, Guides | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

Let’s be honest, we don’t like to read big pieces of text. Text-heavy graphs are rather difficult for understanding, especially when dealing with numbers and statistics. That is why illustrations and flowcharts are often used for such kind of information.

An infographic, or a visual representation of study or data, like anything else, can be done right or wrong. How to create a successful infographic? A good idea and a good design.

 

Stop by the link for more on what defines an infographic, what contributes to its popularity, as well as the various types of infographics and references for tutorials and best practices.
