Trace is a simple to use photo editing tool that instantly removes backgrounds from images and changes backgrounds. After creating an account, upload your photo, and Trace removes the background and leaves the image's main focus. Download the edited image as a PNG file or continue through the additional options to add a new color background, upload a new image for the background, use one of Trace's background images, or edit using the crop tool. When finished, download your image to your device.

In the Classroom

Bookmark this site for many classroom uses. Combine your downloaded image with others using a variety of tools, including Google Slides. Choose a background image of a city being studied, a different time, or in a far-away setting like the moon, then place your student image on top. Resize the image to fit the scene. Include this image as a starter for class projects. Use images on top of book covers for book talks, create images for story characters and heroes, or use for weather reports. The ideas for using this tool are only limited by your imagination and that of your students. Use your new images to modify or redefine classroom technology use by creating a ThingLink, reviewed here, presentation that includes text, videos, and more.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session from November 2020, opens in Adobe Connect. We all know that learners need feedback. To maximize the benefit from that feedback, it should be given immediately -- ideally after each question. Google Forms can make that happen using conditional branching, the ability to send a user to a different question (or a different page of questions) based on the answer the user supplies. Learn to make your forms more functional and help every student be successful on your next quiz! As a result of this session, teachers will: 1. Create a Google Form. 2. Use branching to facilitate instant remediation and feedback. 3. Discuss tips and tricks for management of Google Forms. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

Travel the world from home by looking through windows shared in random locations. The prerecorded videos typically last 10 minutes or use the link to move to new videos at any time. Some sites share beautiful landscapes; others look out onto a garden or street. You never know what you will see! WindowSwap opens in a new window in your browser; at the time of review it doesn't work on iPads or iPhones.

tag(s): countries (84), cross cultural understanding (150), cultures (116)

In the Classroom

Share WindowSwap on your interactive whiteboard to engage students in learning about different countries and states through real-life backyards and windows. Ask students to compare and contrast the geographical features seen during your browsing. Be sure to locate other locations on a map to help students understand where each country is found. Have students browse the site on their own to find a place of interest to choose as a research topic. Become part of WindowSwap by sharing the view outside your classroom window following the directions on the site. As students explore and learn more about windows around the world, use Google My Maps, reviewed here, to create and share a virtual field trip to each of the locations. Add additional areas based on student interest, and ask them to find images and information to include.
