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.

tag(s): editing (75), images (264), preK (271)

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.

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.

In the Classroom

Take advantage of these free resources to bring hands-on STEM activities into any classroom. Some of the curriculums are designed for after-school and summer programs; however, they are easily adaptable to use for in-class activities. Enhance activities by encouraging students to document and share their learning through a variety of methods. Take pictures of each activity as they progress and use a blogging tool like Edublogs, reviewed here, to share images and document the learning taking place. Have students share the story of their activity using a digital book creation tool like Book Creator, reviewed here, to explain the activity and their approach to problem-solving. For younger students, use WriteReader, reviewed here. Both options include areas for adding student writing and images; Book Creator includes additional options for creating images and adding links to outside resources. For older students, consider asking them to create explainer videos using Biteable, reviewed here.

Each new game begins in a unique world and encourages players to use computational thinking skills and an understanding of environmental awareness. Follow the included Teacher-Guide to find ideas and strategies for classroom use. Download the tips and tricks guide and watch the introductory video to learn more about The Pack.

In the Classroom

Utilize the Teacher-Guide to find ideas for classroom use. Use the table in the guide as a starting point to document and organize student learning. As students play The Pack, use a spreadsheet tool such as Excel or Google Sheets to recreate the table in the guide and add additional areas of documentation. Enhance student learning by having students use a screen recording tool like Screencastify, reviewed here, to share different portions of the game and their chosen actions. As a final activity, and to extend student learning, ask students to create their own environmental learning game using Scratch, reviewed here.
