How I Use It
Students use Skitch to create visuals to demonstrate understanding of vocabulary and also help other students grasp the concept.
My Take
Students are able to flex their creative muscles and get away from template designs like you would see in Powerpoint. It is important that students are well-versed in using creative-commons and avoiding copyright issues since Skitch's screenshot tool would allow them to capture photos they may not have permission to use. This, of course, presents an opportunity to teach copyright issues. I feel that Skitch is a great app for the classroom.
