I personally am an avid use of Evernote, so I was very excited when I found out about Evernote's Skitch. (I downloaded it right away!) What's great about Skitch is that it cultivates collaboration and can make classroom tasks more vibrant.
Some teaching ideas:
- Giving feedback on students' written work and projects. (Being able to use visual mark-ups will save you time!)
- Students can use Skitch to help explain images to their peers, and can send them to each other to increase collaborative learning.
- Students can create their own advertisements by marking up an image.
- Teachers can use marked up images to better explain a concept (e.g. a grammar point) when presenting to students.
What are some ways you can use Skitch in your classroom?
