A Geotaggers' World Atlas

A Geotaggers' World Atlas | Resources or Vendors | Scoop.it

"Every city has a picturesque spot or two where the probability of a photo being taken at any given time is pretty high. Now there's a world atlas of maps showing the routes people follow while taking these pictures in every city around the world:Mapbox's Eric Fischer has been working on the "Geotaggers' World Atlas" for five years, using locations of photos uploaded on Flickr over a decade. In his city maps, which now span the world, he connects the dots between subsequent photos taken by a photographer—representing their path in sketchy lines that criss-cross across the city."

5 presentation tools that enable better collaboration | Resources or Vendors | Scoop.it

If you haven't seen Prezi or you have and want to know how to go about getting started this might give you the inspiration you need.  Prezi is like PowerPoint on steroids and provides that extra bit of spark to keep the audience awake just a bit longer than PP.

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, January 31, 2014 9:38 AM

We have taught many different classes that has a Prezi as the final required product.  The students seem to enjoy using this tool, especially because it is web-based.  It is getting more user-friendly as it gets more attention from mainstream users.  We would love to teach a lesson on Prezi for students or personal use!

I just downloaded the free version which looks good, but may have to upgrade. The features look well worth the $3.99 price. You can move & resize your drawn objects, zoom in/out, etc. If you're working on creating "flipped classroom" videos, or how-to tutorials this may be what you need. Check out their website and user guide for the details.

These kind of tips are helpful in every way possible especially when someone is nervous. Knowing that we need to just breathe is an important thing. These skills can allow us to get better in our presentations.
