No More Photoshop: 5 No-Signup Image Editors on the Web

No More Photoshop: 5 No-Signup Image Editors on the Web | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"It is a pain to fire up Photoshop, Pixelmator, or GIMP for a simple task like resizing some photos or blurring sensitive information in an image. Well, you don’t need to. Use these websites to do your job in a jiffy.

I’m a big fan of doing common web tasks without signing up. Apart from the convenience, it’s also a big step in protecting your privacy online, especially when you realize how much information websites store about you.

When it comes to everyday operations for an image, you’d be better off using one of these web apps to quickly and efficiently finish what you need to do."

Marianela Camacho Alfaro's curator insight, October 17, 2013 11:53 AM

The move toward e-book reading coincides with an increase in ownership of electronic book reading devices. In all, the number of owners of either a tablet computer or e-book reading device such as a Kindle or Nook grew from 18% in late 2011 to 33% in late 2012. As of November 2012, some 25% of Americans ages 16 and older own tablet computers such as iPads or Kindle Fires, up from 10% who owned tablets in late 2011. And in late 2012 19% of Americans ages 16 and older own e-book reading devices such as Kindles and Nooks, compared with 10% who owned such devices at the same time last year.

The Adventures of Library Girl: Fact VS Fiction: Teaching Critical Thinking Skills in the Age of Fake News [Please take our survey]

The Adventures of Library Girl: Fact VS Fiction: Teaching Critical Thinking Skills in the Age of Fake News [Please take our survey] | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Look at this, y'all! It's the cover of a top secret project I've been working on with my friend Darren Hudgins for the last year(ish!)

I'll go into the why and how of this project at some point in the future, but for right now, we really need your help. Part of what we're doing with this book is collecting data on how educators (of all stripes, not just school librarians, but certainly school librarians, too!) are teaching media literacy in the age of "Fake News." We're seeking to find out how/if schools are grappling with this problem, while also identifying what strategies are currently working in the field.

This is where you come in!

To help us, will you please take a few minutes to fill out this brief survey? It would mean the world to us!
