Two Cool Tools

I was searching today for a good free photo editing program to share with my schools. I began by researching products on the web and installed two different programs. Neither one really met the expectations I was looking for. However a friend of mine recommended a web based photo editing tool called picnik.

This tool allows you free uploads of photos and all the basic editing tools a user would need. I highly recommend this for K-12 users who are looking for a quick, easy and free way to modify photos.

The second tool I came across is called Evernote.

Evernote allows you to capture information from any environment (PC, PDA, phone, web, etc.) and make that information accessible from any location. I can see this being useful for a teacher who is searching content on the web and would like to be able to access a specific piece of that content for later use either via their home PC or PDA. The teacher simply captures the information and Evernote stores it until the user requests the info.

Here is a video showing how Evernote works:
