Free Technology for Teachers: How to Remove the Background from Your Pictures

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Remove the Background from Your Pictures | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
Thanks to the ever-clever Tony Vincent this week I learned about a neat tool called Remove.bg. Remove.bg is a free tool that will remove the background from your images. The catch is that it will only work with pictures that have people in them. I tried to use it with pictures of my dogs and it didn't work. Remove.bg is easy to use. To remove the background from your picture simply go to the Remove.bg website and upload your picture. Within a minute you will have a new image file that you can download. Watch my short video to see how it works.

(Empathic Design) Design Thinking – Where Empathy and Innovation Meet 

(Empathic Design) Design Thinking – Where Empathy and Innovation Meet  | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

The old saying that you should ‘walk a mile in someone else’s shoes’ to understand what they are going through is really the essence of what design thinking is all about. If the goal is to design a technology solution to a customer problem, it makes a great deal of sense to go the extra mile to understand that problem from their perspective. A design thinking approach puts empathy for the end user foremost in problem solving.

“Empathy for the customer’s problems is at the center of a good design. If the solution is empathetic, people are more likely to want to engage with the design. They will then be more willing to fall in line with the solution that emerges,” said Pierre Enriquez, Scrum Master at TDK Technologies.
