Robin Good's insight:


Adobe Revel is a new app, working across Mac and iPhone and iPad which makes it extremely easy to import all of your photos, help you organize them into "libraries" and "albums", and to share them privately with your selected contacts.


Adobe Revel also makes it easy to edit any image with a number of intuitive real-time controls and Instagram-like "effects".


I must say, after having imported nearly 25,000 photos, that Adobe Revel is very simple, intuitive and straightforward to use. Learning time is zero and everything works like you expect it too.


The free plan allows you to import unlimited pictures for the first 30 days, and then a maximum of 50 additional pics every month.


The paid option, at $5.99/month, allows you to upload unlimited number of photos always.



N.B.: For users with Android phones you can download Revel Importer. Revel Importer is not a full version of Revel but it does give you a way to import the photos on your Android phone into your Revel photo library.

Robin Good's insight:


ClipArt ETC is a wonderful collection of quality educational clipart providing simple illustrations, icons and drawings in a multitude of areas, from history, to business, art, literature, music and sports.


A project of the Florida Center for Instructional Technology of University of South Florida), ClipArt ETC has curated over 65,000 images and organized, categorized each one of them, while providing descriptions and multiple file formats in which to download them.


I must say they really did a wonderful job. The images are great, the quality is excellent, the organization of the catalog is well done and easy to navigate.


From the official site: "Every item comes with a choice of image size and format as well as complete source information for proper citations in school projects.


No advertisement-filled pages with pop-up windows or inappropriate links here.


A friendly license allows teachers and students to use up to 50 educational clipart items in a single, non-commercial project without further permission."


The ClipArt ETC resource was designed and intended for educational projects but due to the many commercial requests it has received it now offers a "commercial" shopping cart to purchase any of its images for commercial applications. More info here: http://etc.usf.edu/clipart/info/license

How To Create An Animated Doodle Video for a School History Project

How To Create An Animated Doodle Video for a School History Project | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:


Great job by Paul Bogush, an 8th grade social studies teacher at Moran Middle School in Wallingford, CT, who showcases with many valuable images and several video clips, how he had his class create a RSA-style animated video to help students visualize information, make connections, and re-tell official facts about an important historical event in their own personal ways.


The doodle, or RSA-style video [the name is due to a popular series of these clips available on YouTube], is a video where you see a hand that progressively draws and illustrates what the voice-over is explaining, providing a continuously flowing and refreshing visual illustration of what is being communicated.


The approach taken, how the students went about it, the tech used, and the final results all bring valuable insight to the curious and attentive reader of this article.


Highly recommended for any teacher.



Informative. Useful. Well documented. 9/10

The Free Online Timeline Maker Is Here: Instant Timeline | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it

Office Timeline is a free timeline maker PowerPoint add-in that allows you to easily create and share beautiful simple timelines, gantt charts, and project schedules.

Robin Good's insight:


Instant Timeline is a new web-based app which allows you to easily create professional-looking timelines and Gannt charts (that you can use and publish anywhere) in a matter of minutes, from any device or OS, and for free.


The process is very simple. You first select the style/look of your template, and then you manually add tasks, dates and milestones that you want to be displayed in your timeline. As a last step you can further personalize the look and appearance of specific elements before seeing your timeline fully displayed on your monitor.


At this point you can go back and edit the data, the look and feel, or download the newly created timeline as PowerPoint or as an image file ready to be used anywhere.


Instant Timeline is a close relative to Office Timeline, a free timeline maker PowerPoint add-in that allows you to easily create and share beautiful timelines, gantt charts, and project schedules inside PowerPoint.


A "Plus" version of Office Timeline (starts at $29.95) allows for even greater visual customization options, for direct copy-paste of data directly from Excel, and the leveraging of a large set of professionally-designed ready-made templates plus the ability to do all these things directly within PowerPoint.

Find Instantly Free Images and Creative Commons Photos with Photo Pin | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it
Photo Pin is a free tool that helps bloggers and designers find beautiful photos for blogs and websites using Creative Commons licensing. Download the photos and get attribution links already formatted for you.
Robin Good's insight:


Pin Photo is a great free web service that facilitates your task of finding free, Creative Commons licensed images that you can utilize on your web site, ebook or blog. 


"Using the open API of Flickr, Photo Pin searches the whole Flickr image database, which carries almost 39 Million pictures, if you reduce it to CC-BY-SA.

Switches in the Photo Pin surface allow for the filtering of search results and limiting them to commercial or non-commercial licences. Results are sorted by date, relevance or interestingness.

The search results page resembles the new look of Google Images and presents the pictures in an endless grid. Each image carries a link “Get Photo” which becomes visible on hover. Clicking on it opens a modal window from where you can perform the rest of the necessary tasks. Here you can see the available resolutions and, and this is the unique selling proposition of Photo Pin, the preformatted attribution link to just copy it out and paste it back in.

...Compared to manually performing these tasks on Flickr, you will save loads of time, especially when you are a heavy user."

PowerPoint 2013: 10 Key New Features

PowerPoint 2013: 10 Key New Features | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it
See the new features of PowerPoint 2013.
Robin Good's insight:


If you want to know what characterizes the new PowerPoint 2013 from the version you have been using unitl now, here is all you need to know.


Key new features you should be aware of:


  • Wide-screen friendly  There’s a 16:9 layout, and new themes designed to take advantage of widescreen possibilities.

  • Start an online meeting from within PowerPoint   Send out a link to the slides, or start a full-on Lync meeting that displays the deck with audio and IM. Your audience can join you from anywhere, on any device using Lync or the Office Presentation Service.

  • Improved audio and video   PowerPoint now supports more multimedia formats, such as .mp4 and .mov with H.264 video and Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) audio, and more high-definition content. PowerPoint 2013 includes more built-in codecs so you don’t have to install them for certain file formats to work.

  • Touch device support 

    Now it’s possible to interact with PowerPoint on most any device including a Windows 8 PC. Using typical touch gestures, you can swipe, tap, scroll, zoom, and pan your way through your slides, and really feel the presentation.

  • Share & Save to the cloud   Save your Office files to your own SkyDrive or to your organization’s site. From there you can access and share your PowerPoint presentations and other Office files. You can even work together with your colleagues on the same file at the same time.


  • Use Presenter View on one monitor       Presenter View no longer requires multiple monitors. Now you can rehearse in Presenter View without hooking up anything else.

  • Zoom in on a slide    Click the magnifying glass to zoom in on charts, diagrams, or whatever you want to emphasize for your audience.

  • Theme variations   Themes now come with a set of variations, like different color palettes and font families. And, PowerPoint 2013 provides new widescreen themes along with standard sizes. Choose a theme and variant from the start screen or from the Design tab.

  • Jump to a slide    Use Slide Navigator to browse to other slides in the presentation.

  • Automatic set up    PowerPoint can automatically sense your computer setup and choose the right monitor for Presenter view.

Share Your Presentations Live With Everyone in the Room: TiffanyScreens

Share Your Presentations Live With Everyone in the Room: TiffanyScreens | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it
TiffanyScreens is a presentation tool, capturing the content of the presenter's screen and sending it to multiple other computer screens at the same time.
Robin Good's insight:


TiffanyScreens is a cross-platform app that allows you to share live the contents of your computer screen with every computer present on the same local network (either via WiFi or LAN).


"Imagine a scenario, where every participant brought a Laptop to a meeting and watched the presentation on that Laptop's display - participants would probably sit on a table facing each other, instead of the wall.


No adjustments are necessary; images are scaled automatically on arrival, to best match the receiver's display-capability. To support lively meetings, everyone participating can with a single button click, turn his computer into the presenting device."

Works on:

  • Windows XP / Windows Vista / Windows 7
  • Mac OS X 10.4 / 10.5 / 10.6 / 10.7 / 10.8
  • Linux


Free version available.


Paid version: $39

Handig als je iets wil laten waarbij je veel moet inzoomen. Of als de opstelling van de computerruimte, zoals in veel bibliotheken, gewoonte niet handig is voor een groepsgewijze uitleg.

Hi Becky, I strongly suggest you try Mapbox.com too. It's much easier than this and yes you need to be a bit fluent with CSS-like style sheets to get the best of TileMill.
Becky Gaylord's comment, January 19, 2013 9:00 AM
Thanks, Robin. It sounds like Mapbox.com might be more my speed. You curate such amazing tools!
Dean Mantz's curator insight, May 31, 2013 4:11 PM

This option looks to be a nice alternative to Google Earth and Maps.  Be sure to read through the comments on the original post for advice in using this option as well as other options.

How To Create an Effective Mood Board and Which Tools To Use To Do It

How To Create an Effective Mood Board and Which Tools To Use To Do It | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:


Moodboards are a new, alternative and effective way to communicate a "style", "look" or "feeling" that needs to be conveyed through an advertisign campaign, a web site or a TV spot.


Officially, a mood board is "a collection of textures, images and text related to a design theme as a reference point." and as such they are visually organized collections of images that convey a specific look or feel and which can be used by artists and designers to be inspired, to conceive and design new stuff following the mood board reference.


In this article by Paul Wyatt, you can find good advice on how to create your first moodboard and in discovering what are the tools and services available for you to start on the right foot.


Useful. Resourceful. 7/10
