Eight years ago, in another somewhat futile attempt to reduce the backlog of resources I want to share, I began this occasional “Ed Tech Digest” post where I share three or four links I think are particularly useful and related to…ed tech, including some Web 2.0 apps.
Here are this week’s choices:
PhotoRoom automagically removes background from your photo is from TechCrunch. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Online Photo-Editing & Photo Effects.
Hypatia looks interesting. They call themselves a “spellcheck for math.” It looks like it might be similar to Socratic (see Google Makes Another Big Announcement Unveiling Updated “Socratic” App To Help Students With…Just About Everything) or PhotoMath (see PhotoMath & Reactions To It From Around The Web and PhotoMath Is Now Available For Android). I’m adding it to The Best Apps, Online Tools & Other Resources For Math.
These free tools blur protesters’ faces and remove photo metadata is from TechCrunch, and could be useful when posting student photos. I’m adding it to The Best Teacher Resources For Online Student Safety & Legal Issues.
About the Circles and Ovals in My Videos is from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to A POTPOURRI OF THE BEST & MOST USEFUL VIDEO SITES.
DollarStreet from Gapminder is on various “Best” lists. It compares the lives of people from various countries. They’ve just added the ability to create your own albums:
